A Brief History on the Pickup Truck


Pickup trucks as we know them go back to the early days of the automobile industry.
The first civilian Dodge Brothers' Commercial was the famous Screenside which was a  military ambulance converted to the Dodge Brothers famous Commercial Screenside Panel. 
Dodge Brothers Company entered into an agreement with the Graham Brothers Company in 1921 whereby the Grahams would manufacture one and 1 1/2 ton trucks from mechanical parts supplied by Dodge and with cabs and bodies manufactured in the Graham's plants.
Graham Brothers built the 1924 3/4 ton Dodge Brothers' pickup. 
 
 

Also in  1918 Chevrolet brought out it's model 490 Light Delivery chassis cowl. The chassis cowl consists of the
painted metal parts. The wooden cab and pickup type body were purchased from an aftermarket manufacturer.
The 1921 Chevrolet 490 Roadster Pickup's cargo box was also an aftermarket item.
This practice of using an aftermarket continued for the 1927 and 1928 models.

The first Ford pickups to hit the streets was in the mid 1920s. Back then they came in one color, one model, and
without much equipment.
On April 25, 1925 the Ford Motor Company introduced their first factory produced pickup truck. The Ford model T Runabout with Pickup Body was successful with over 33,800 of them being sold. 
The Closed Cab version of the pickup was introduced in 1928. This truck featured an all steel cab with roll up windows in its doors.
The Open Cab Model A Pickup was dressed up by using a car type nickel plated grille surround and headlights in 
1928 and 29. The red wheels and while wall tires also add a nice touch.
It seemed the writing was on the wall back then. From the early beginning the pickup truck was strictly a work vehicle.
Things stayed this way until the mid to late 1950's when most of the manufactures started to add car like features.
This practice changed the automobile industry forever.
The pickup truck was never the same work horse again.
Even with their high gas consumption they continue to be some of the best selling vehicles of all North American manufactures.


 
A number of years ago I saw a one page calendar that showed all the Ford 
pickup trucks from the first one to the present day. I thought , what a nice idea.
I thought that I might try something similar with some of the car pictures I have collected.
I have been collecting pictures of Studebaker, Packard Nash,
Hudson, Jeeps and pickup trucks for some time now and I first wrote a web 
page on the Studebaker.
Then one on Jeeps , Packard and the Hudson and Nash  followed.
Next came the Kieser and Henry J.
Now I with the help of one of my visitors have written on on the Crosley
Now I thought I would try a web page on the Pickup Trucks
of the 1940's to the 1960's.
I also included some panel trucks and early SUV's of this period.
They just seemed to fit right in with the pickups.

These pictures came for a number of sources including 
web pages of the manufacture, news groups and my own.
Since most of these pictures came from news groups there may 
be a chance that your car is shown here.

I would like to invite any one that has a favorite Pickup Truck of 
this period to E mail me a copy.

This is probably the most famous Hood Ornament used on a Pickup truck
but when it comes to old Pickup trucks not many would disagree that
this is what it's all about.
This Antique Truck has set the standard for others to follow.
It is a REAL CLASSY Truck

Saving a 1931 Model A Panel truck on a bet


Thirty Five Years and Counting
The story of a very special 1931 Model A Panel Delivery

It was September 1973. Al Audette, my long time friend, and I were making our way back to Cincinnati, Ohio after picking up a 1931 Model A Panel Delivery Truck from a field in Cheboygan, Michigan. This would be our last trip to Cheboygan, so we had the prize possession on our trailer. Let me give you some background on this adventure.

In 1970, Al, and another friend of mine, Jack DeBrunner, had just purchased a large assortment of Model A parts and vehicles from a man in Cheboygan after Jack had spotted them, in a field, on his many trips to this Michigan City for his work. Jack and Al worked out a plan to travel to Michigan on numerous weekends to load and bring back all of the parts and most of the vehicles.

I, of course being their friend, jumped at the chance to help them out and to see all the treasures they bought. We made several trips to pick up drums of parts that were taken off of the vehicles before they were parked in the fields to await decomposition. We also tried to load at least one vehicle on a trailer to bring back each trip. We made several trips in the next few years, the last trip being in September 1973, bringing back the Panel Delivery.

We had probably the worst trip ever when we brought back the Truck. We had transmission trouble in the ex-police station wagon that we took and had to retreat back to Cincinnati to pick up another station wagon to continue the trip. Then, we were pulled over because the lights on the trailer were not working. The cop was nice and I'm sure he thought we were nuts, but we were able to fix the lights and continued on our way. When we got to our destination the ground was very soft, and the truck was nestled fairly far away in a bunch of weeds. I guess that's why it was the last one to go. It was the hardest to load. At any rate, we got the truck loaded and started our journey home. During the return trip, Al and I had a discussion about the truck and the restoration of it. Al knew that I had my eye on this truck, but he also wanted to restore it. I made him a little wager that he would never restore the truck. He said "Sure I will, what's the bet". Well, I came up with an idea. I told Al that if he restored the Model A within ten years I would buy him an extra large Pizza with everything on it. He agreed to that, but said, "What happens if I don't get it restored in ten years". I just looked at him smiling and said, "Then you owe me $1,000".  Al agreed to this silly bet. I wrote it all down on a napkin that was laying on the seat, signed it, and had Al sign it.
We had a Bet! We made it home and put the Truck in Al's Garage. 

This was 1973. Al and I were both 23 years old and as everybody knows, priorities change through out the course of life. Jobs and personal time are so precious when you are 23. Before long, I was married, Al was married, and the truck was in storage 'for a while'.
We didn't see a whole lot of each other for the next twenty years. I had taken that napkin with the silly bet and placed it in a file, forgetting all about it. We both now had families to worry about, and kids to rise. It was a busy time. 

One day, many years later, Al and I got together at a Chili Parlor that we used to frequent when we were younger. During reminiscing at the restaurant, the subject of the Model A Panel Delivery came up. I asked Al what happened to it. He said he needed the space, so he sold it. I told Al I really wanted that truck, but now it was gone. I never asked him who he sold it to or anything. I just figured it was a done deal. 

A few years after that, I was going through my files when I came upon the napkin with the bet on it. I looked at it, smiled, and then threw it away knowing that I would never see that truck again.

Fast forward to November 2005. Dave Cradler calls my brother Tom, and says that he has a guy that has a panel delivery and wants to sell it. Apparently, Robbie Sizemore and his father-in-law bought the truck as a father/son project, and tragically, his dad had passed away. He was tired of it and wanted it gone. Tom, who by this time, was very much into Model A's, gave me a call and asked if I was interested in restoring the panel delivery. He said we should go take a look at it, which we did. Talk about your handyman special. I couldn't see much of a truck at all. There were parts everywhere. Wood, both old and new, Panels, Doors, Fenders, you name it and it was there. I did recognize the frame, engine, and the skeleton for the body, but that was about it. I did notice some pieces that looked just like the truck Al and I had brought back from Michigan so many years before. I asked Robbie where he got this truck and he told me he bought it from Al Audette. We left the visitation talking about how much work was involved with the truck, but my brother was extremely optimistic about doing the restoration. I knew Tom didn't want that one to get away, and I also knew it was my destiny to restore "That" truck! We decided to go into a partnership and purchased the truck as a team of two. You could say a brother/brother restoration project. Two days later we went and picked up the entire kit and caboodle.

Thirty-Two years had passed since I had my hands on that truck and now it was ours to restore. We got right into it.  We did research. Found out which parts we needed, and where to get them. We also found out that any panel truck was very rare. After coming up with five good-looking wheels, we sanded, primed, and finally had Dave Cradler paint them with our pinstripe color of Straw. We knew the truck was going to be painted Rubelite Red. We fabricated a new wood roof for the truck with the help of Bruce Bailey. We were able to use some white oak that was left over from restoring two model AA mail trucks that we finished a couple of years earlier. We went through the entire frame and drive train, and picked the best body parts to put on this diamond in the rough. Believe it or not, we had a very nice looking panel delivery within the next year and a half. Then we ran into a problem we never expected we would have. 

Nobody wanted to paint this truck... NOBODY!
It was amazing. We had more interviews with painters than you would have with babysitters to watch your first born for a night out on the town. Everyone we brought in would be excited, but would never commit. We did have a couple of guys that wanted to do it, but one wanted us to wait a year and the other said he would get back to us. After searching another 15 months, Tom and I were ready to try it ourselves, but we just couldn't do that. We had no idea how to paint the truck, so we continued our search. Finally we found Automotive Enterprises. They said they could do it, and to the body shop it went. This was on July 1, 2008. They worked on the truck for months, but it sure didn't look like it was coming together. Tom and I would go visit our truck and even do some work on it. We brought our LeBaron Bonney roof material to the shop and helped install it on a bright sunny day. That, at least, gave us some assurance that the truck was coming together. We were starting to get a little concerned if this project would be finished, but by November, the truck started to take shape. We were promised that we would have a finished paint job by Christmas, and true to their word, on December 22, 2008 we were able to bring the Model A Panel Delivery home, freshly painted and ready to assemble. 

Assembly started the very next day. We were so excited to have the truck home and all the parts that we had purchased, rebuilt, or made were being installed. Tom & I pretty much gave up doing anything else and focused all our attention on the project at hand. By January 6, 2009 Tom had the truck running. All the wiring, lights, & horn were installed. Our rebuilt seats, with the LeBaron Bonney covers, which we had restored a year earlier, were unwrapped and installed. Along with all the glass, trim, bumpers, and dash. We even went a little crazy and had the wizard of pin stripping, Dan Shaw paint a nice straw pin stripe matching the wheels. 

The Truck is finished now. It's red, it looks great, it runs great, and it is snowing. Thirty-Five Years and counting, that test drive will just have to wait until spring... or will it?
Oh, how I wish I saved that napkin.

P.S. This story was written in January 2009. Since then we did get the test drive and a whole lot more. It's a real looker. We took this truck to the M.A.R.C. National Meet in June, had it judged in touring class, and came home with an "Award of Excellence". This was followed by many car shows and tours with our Model "A" Club. We have had a blast with this restored treasure...

But wait, there's more! Just this January 2010, I was going through my files, looking for something and I came upon that BET. The one that Al & I made in 1973. Boy, was he surprised when I sprang that on him at our next Model "A" meeting. I didn't think I'd collect, and the look on his face was payment enough, but true to his word, Al brought me a check for $1000.00 on March 29,2010.  It just goes to show you that even after thirty-five plus years, a bet is a bet, and a classic can be resurrected from a rust heap. 

Happy Restoring!

 1920 Dodge Pickup Fire Truck
 1920 Dodge Pickup Fire Truck
These pictures were submitted by Ed Arata, Sutter Creek, Cal.
This was the first fire truck in Sutter Creek.
He had the following to say about this truck.
"The Photos of the truck are circa 1927.  The men are obviously
part of the Sutter Creek Volunteer Fire Department, but there
are no names on the back of the original photos.
The only person that we know is the man sitting in the truck, 
his name is Joseph J. Capetanich, he was a local auto 
mechanic and Fire Chief.  His first garage in Sutter Creek is
directly behind the person who took the group photo, so
we assume that the fire truck was built in his garage.
The building behind the group photo was the
Mint Saloon on Eureka Street and the building is 
still there today, as an art gallery.  In the photo of
the truck only is a building that was a boarding house
and it is still there today a restaurant.
Today in the Fire Service, we have engines called "Fast Attack" engines, as small first-in engines that can get to the fire fast and make an initial attack, so I jokingly call this engine the "First Attack Engine in Sutter Creek" and it must be since they took the door off for fast entry into the rig.  :)
The tank behind the driver is a Nott Chemical Fire Extinguisher.  This tank and hose unit on top were originally mounted on cart wheels and pulled to fire by hand.  The guys obviously got tired of pulling that sucker around town, so mounted  it on this truck.
They then added the hose reel with some small diameter cotton hose and we assume that there is some hose in the bed of the pick-up.  In the two views of the truck, you can just see the handle and the tip of a large diameter nozzle behind the tool box on the running board.  We still have that nozzle. 
We also have the hose basket for  the chemical hose and the hose reel, so now all I need is a 20 or 21 Dodge and I can recreate that rig.  Know any one who has a 20 0r 21 Dordge Pick-up for sale?  Keep your eye out, I am in the market."

This 1924 Model T truck was originally a ranch truck in

Company and Tent City Restaurant in Coronado, CA.
The little green truck still boasts her original engine, and
operates daily on the island of Coronado running errands 
and promoting business. This truck has been nicknamed 
"Olive Oyl," because she is tall and skinny, spinach green,
and her shrill horn sounds like Olive yelling for Popeye.
