Lost Truck Legends
An Illustrated History of Unique, Small-Scale Truck Builders
Here you go truck fans, a book just for you! Featuring small-scale independent truck manufacturers, this book showcases a selection of trucks no longer manufactured, but that in their time had a solid reputation. Ultimately, the smaller companies couldn't compete with the large manufacturers, yet they offered technological innovations, unique styling, or met a specific market niche in the trucking industry.
Detailed histories along with vintage photographs hark back to a different era of these gone-but-not-forgotten, yet still-today-admired orphan trucks.
Major chapters cover Available, Biederman, Corbitt, Dart, Fageol, Garford, Gotfredson, Hug, Hendrickson, Republic and Stewart. In addition, others covered include American LaFrance, La-France Republic, Linn and Relay - all portrayed through hundreds of historic images and vintage sales literature.
Anyone with even a passing interest in the history of American trucks or trucking will thoroughly enjoy this book.
