This is a test. If it works, I'll post more commercial images, a few at a time, for your enjoyment... and to keep this thread at the top

The image is a 1931 dealer's promotional shot. Perhaps another Fordbarner will know where it was taken?

John,

Pretty sure that photo was taken at the Louisville, KY Assembly plant. I bought the same photo from Bratton's a few years back.

That's a beer advertising truck, alright, with what appears to be a powerful sound system. Here's a larger image. Blatz resumed brewing beer in 1933, after the 21st Amendment was ratified. I wonder whether this truck was created in 1933, on a 1931 pickup chassis, to proclaim the event? Note the custom paint job (light fenders) and, despite the extreme customization, whitewall tires.

Let's take a brief detour to Denmark to see a sharp rig with disc wheels and bright headlamps and radiator shell.
