    Some really great examples of elegant yet creative advertising.
    And you've got to love the lead picture; Ford's Hardware on a 1941 Chevrolet panel truck.

    Here's one I recently became aware of; they were built in Scotland. Pretty badass looking.

    Something so cool about these " street car" flavored Twin Coach trucks. Are they Faegol or Divco, I've heard them called both ..

    My orange juice delivery panel, from Minnesota, the original sign was painted over with a light blue color with a paint brush. It sat for 50 years before I got it. Been working on it 7 years and not quite ready to go. IMG_1208.JPG

    I've looked for years... and have never been able to find a color photo of that thing.

    Love it, but pretty sure that it's been colorized.

    possibly, if it was it was done a long time ago, it is from a 1930's magazine ad

    I love deliveries, I have a 46 Ford that was supposed to have been a Kenz & Leslie shop truck back in the day. I haven't found any back up info yet.
     
  15. This is our first shop truck circa 1958, which we still have. Vaughn Winter Sr. started out building transmissions for drag cars (his own and his friends), then changed the name to Winters Performance when he began manufacturing other components beyond transmissions.

    He parked this in his home garage in 1972, and we unearthed it about a year ago. We're freshening up the straight six, going through the brakes and wiring, and restoring the interior. The rest is staying as-is. Incidentally, that cardboard sign (propped up on the bumper for our open house last year) was from when we attended the very first SEMA show. Unlike the mega-buck booths of today, exhibitors got one of these signs (hand-lettered in One-Shot) and a table to display their goods.

    candid photo of Andy Koehler's 40 ford delivery and my fathers 40 Chevy delivery, both based out of Williamsport PA.

    My fathers features his shop logo, Andy's delivery hasn't sat still long enough to get lettered yet. (that I am aware of)

    Ironically there is a second 40 Chevy delivery in Williamsport.

    actually I did a google image search for "1936 sedan delivery lifesavers" that lead me to a Hamb thread from 2009 about 36 deliveries where one of the posters I believe it was @The37Kid mentioned that he somewhere had a copy of fortune magazine with a color ad for the lifesavers delivery. Then I went to Ebay and searched for "Fortune magazine lifesavers" and about the third auction I looked at had that page pictured in the ad...

    I love sedan deliveries! Here's my '39. Parked in 1948. I lettered it and aged the lettering to match the paint.

    That full color Lifesaver ad pops up when I search for other things. When I find it the next time I'll post it here. Used to drive past the building in Port Chester, N.Y. if memory is correct.

    I've always been a fan of deliveries...even built a few (some before & afters)
    pan1.jpg pan9.jpg 0.11.jpg 0.13.jpg

    ...and liked deliveries so much, I built one from a Fordor.

    But after years of driving them, that HUGE right side "blind spot", especially on the hi-way, has just become too un-nerving:(.

    It must have looked spectacular.
     
  24. I Love them too. I've had mine for over 40 years. When I sanded it down to it's original paint. It was white with green crosses. So it was an ambulance when new. Then a Drag car in the 1960's with a 401 Buick nailhead. I knew the car as a kid, and made it my goal to buy it. A photo from when I got it, one from 1981 { EGGS and things } , and now. 123.jpg 063.jpg 072.jpg 069.jpg 678.jpg

    I really dig the paint scheme on the Dunne Paints rig - very creative.

    That's Jim Rathmann's Indy car from the mid-'50s, though I've never seen it with that canopy. I looked up some images...it was the Belond Miracle Power Special, run in 1955. Here's a shot of it how I remembered it...
    Screen Shot 2022-10-24 at 7.53.07 AM.png

    But I did find one other shot with the canopy showing more detail...

    Don't know any more details than that. Okay, back to deliveries...
