Default Re: Model A Ford Mail Truck

The wooden Mail truck bodies were mated to the Model A chassis at the Regional Post Office Garages in major US cities which were allocated specific numbers by the Postmaster General. Initially these trucks served these major cities, delivering bags of mail to the green dispatch/relay boxes to support mailmen on foot rounds. At some point in their very long careers, these trucks must have been relegated to small town post offices like Pawtucket where they served until the end of their postal duties. I don’t know this for a fact but a lot of the survivors’ stories do indicate they were rescued after small town service. Any one with a better history trail?
