    A quick google search produced this:
    1938 International Harvester D-300 truck & trailer from the 1939 Treasure Island Fair.

    Search Levi's Puppet Rodeo, you'll find more info.

    It probably should be restored to look exactly like it did back in the day but that would make a wild hot rod travel trailer conversion.

    An internet search shows that the truck has quite a following who keep track of it.

  13. Definitely one of a kind.
    You'd be the only kid on the block to have one.

    So if it's one of a kind where does the one I posted come into the picture? Looks like it says Universal sound stage on the front. So was it orange and yellow, then repainted the light blue, and then repainted the orange and yellow?

    It transported a mechanical puppet show featuring Levi's wearing cowboy singer puppets.

    It was built in 1939 and toured the country in WWII selling war bonds.

    I mean this respectfully... It is so ugly that i can't stop looking at it. Is the five head and fin OG?

    P.S. I really don't mean to offend anyone with my comments. I think anything old is worth saving, especially the rare. And ugly has its place too. I hope anyway, for my sake!!

    Ultra-want.

    Looks like it's been taken care of for the most part, that's always good. Something like that deserves a full on restoration.
     
  24. Ha Ha!

    An old hauler with a mohawk! COOL!

    I like it... I want it!
