    OK, I like the cab over conversion in the first post but the one in post 24... that's just a bit too much ugly to be cool. The truck in post 25, the racks look to be made out of wood, looks a bit "shaky" to me. If you got paid by the car the guy hauling Crosleys was doing well, that's wild, 2 across. Didn't they have any height/ width restrictions back then?

  3. Regarding post # 10. Can't you just hear the conversation between the customer and the salesman now ..... "just how long is it gonna take for my '56 Chevy to get here ? You told me 4 weeks! "

  4. Side to side motion had to play hell with the sides of those upper deck Crosleys.

    The fuel mileage could not have been very good with that thing.

  10. It raises a number of questions. For example, the steering: With the cab up that high, I imagine the space under it carried an auto too - so how did they route the steering? Was it all hydraulic? I can tell you from personal experience that hydraulic steering is imprecise and offers ZERO road feedback.

    On the other hand, while visibility was above average, it must have been a chore getting up there to squeegee off the windshield, or adjust the mirrors.

  13. The only one I could come p with - after reading "none had titles" - is that a load had been hijacked by locals, and then left undiscovered after the nefarious creature was nabbed for a different, unrelated crime...

    I'd think this would be a little top-heavy going around a corner! k-bigpic.jpg

  20. Danny - Absolutely NO faux pas on your part ... I was simply pointing out some OLD threads that had some cool pics of Vintage Car Carriers.
