American Pickup Truck (Book)
[10177]
AUD $54.95

You would have to search long and hard to find something more originally American than the pickup truck.  America created the pickup, and vice-versa.  As much a working man's best friend as ol' Rover, pickups have done more than their fair share to help build this country.  And once all the really tough work was done, the light truck, in recent decades, has evolved into an all-purpose machine able to fit into polite society as easily as most cars.

The American Pickup Truck shows you just how far light-duty trucks have come over nearly 100 years of hauling history, from air-cooled horseless carriages of the early 1900s to art-deco Detroit classics in the 1930s to today's drive-friendly transporters.  Showcased within are the veterans from Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, and Dodge, as well as all the lesser known players.  Mighty mites from Bantam and Crosley.  Four-wheel-drives from Willys.  Big brutes from Mack and Diamond T.  Half-car, half-trucks from Studebaker and Hudson.  International, Plymouth, Reo, Fargo—if it had a bed in back, it's in here.

Author/photographer Mike Mueller tells the whole story with a fact-filled text that hauls you away down many nearly forgotten paths of pickup history.  Helping revive all the memories are 100 color photos and a like number of historical black and white shots.  The American Pickup Truck is loaded down with legends and lore like few other truck tales.  Close the tailgate on this book and you will know your pickups.
