Built these with an associate approx 10 years ago. A ’53, a ’56 and two 1931’s. Both of us were in the sign business and familiar with box contruction and lettering. Scanned these taken with my old Pentax K1000. I have a ’53 cab coming in now and I needed to show the customer job reference. The ’56 cab was rough which I got from a friend. No matter, everything needs to be cut off anyway. The ’53 was a decent complete driver pickup and after the guy dropped it off we had it quickly chopped up.
’53 is done, ’56 under construction. Boxes are insulated and refrigeration was an option.
At the old shop.
These were built to sell. The ’56 was sold to a buyer and I never knew what happened to it until I started searching for them. It ended up at Gateway Museum in Colorado.

Wow That’s pretty cool,I enjoy seeing something that is different.You are very talented Scott,glad to have you here 😉November 14, 2012 at 4:26 am #39171
Thanks gentlemen. These were a break from monotony. The ’31 was an ivory and black pickup and he wanted it converted. We did 2 for him, one was refrigerated. I’ve seen these and the previous ’53 listed for sale in different states. ’31 needed some of the oak roof framing repaired, but otherwise a rust free color change.

My brother and I own a 1954 Good Humor truck that we would like to have restored. We live in Atlanta, GA and can not find anyone to help.
