"Last two pics are after I got rid of the whitewalls and put on some new Goodyear blackwalls, can't believe how much cooler the truck looks with them!"

I restored my car when I was 20 and still in college, due to extremely limited funds a bunch of great guys came forward and started donating stuff...I got the wheels (painted) and the tires (www's) for free, so, the price was perfect for my budget...

But yeah, blackwalls look a lot better.

In honor of the weather (in the US, at least) here are four images of commercial bodies in the snow :

First, a stake body in a factory photo:



Second, a similar truck in real life (note the shortened running board, and apron, and the lack of rear fenders):



Third, does this ever look cold! Look closely... I'm all but certain that's an AA, not a GAZ:



Fourth, GAZ AA's experienced some of the most serious snow conditions ever (apart from the two "A" snowmobiles that Byrd abandoned in Antarctica in 1933). This looks to me to be Wehrmacht soldiers pushing a captured Red Army Gaz, but I may be wrong. Anyone have any better information?

During 1928, Mifflinburg claimed that they were the second largest manufacturer of wooden bodies in the United States. Approximately 20-25 bodies were completed each day with annual sales of close to $1 million dollars. Although they were not selected to contribute to Fords 1928-1932 Model A station wagon program, Mifflinburg offered a slip-in cargo body for the Model A Business Coupe and Roadster. The slip-in pick-up bed was installed in place of the rear deck lid or rumble seat creating an open cargo area that extended 18 inch from the rear of the body.

Bick I think you're right. If I recall correctly, it's a fire brigade member's funeral procession some time in the mid to late thirties.
