    Lenz House Cruiser Company on State Street in Gasport. Pease Hardware was here before Lenz. Tri-Town Ambulance is now on the site.

    Whit's Place. Sometime between the early 1930's (When this pic was prob taken) and 1946 they must have changed from carrying SOCONY products to MOBIL.

    Pease Hardware Store on State Street in Gasport. This was where Tri-Town Ambulance is now. It was destroyed by fire in the 1960's.

    It's a VW so my guess is a prank. Maybe?

    Big THANKS there, LordAirGuitar! I've seen the heavier Nash trucks, in particular with wrecker bodies.
    The pickups are a pleasant surprise. As I understand from following some links, a majority of Nash
    trucks were for export in knock-down form, in particular to Brazil and Argentina. As for the pickups,
    I have to agree: Their looks rival those of the Hudsons. I'll always wish that Nash and Hudson could
    have joined forces (and dealer/service outlets) shortly before or immediately after the war. Things
    might have turned out differently, especially for Hudson.

    Thanks to Route66Rambler, the above pickup was used as a general-purpose and parts chaser around the Kenosha
    plant. Not certain, but it may now be owned by Jim Dworshack of the Nash club. This pic posted by MrAMC is at:
    route66rambler.com/forum/topicview/misc/nash_trucks/nash_truck. Here are two more promising Nash links: Nash
    Trucks and The AMC Heritage Forum.

    Also thanks to MrAMC, a ton-&-a-half or two-tonner coming off the assembly line, possibly going to a dealer
    or for commercial tow use.

    Notice the roadster body in the lower left under the fender pile it has the side door in the rear quarter for your golf bag( that's how I've always seen them in ads)This is one of the high end roadsters Packard ,Graham Page I'm not sure from the picture but a damn shame to see it sitting there.
