Hey do you or anyone have an original magazine with the top Hemi in it?
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.
Cy Roberts Barber Shop on Main Street in Middleport. To the left of it was Diane's Beauty Shoppe.
What the hell is this all about?
It's a VW so my guess is a prank. Maybe?
Caption read it was a prank bricking someone's car with a wall
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.
