Semi-Trucks of the 1950s: A Photo GalleryAfter the Second World War America began an active programme of replacement and renewal after the 'make do and mend years' demanded in the war years when output was focused on serving the military machine. By the 1950s new highways were being built, new trucking companies operating and new truck models were being built to service and feed the demands of the burgeoning post-war economy. This book features the products of names such as Mack, GMC, Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, International, White Freightliner, Peterbilt, Kenworth, Diamond T, Reo, Autocar, Brockway, Sterling and others pictured working during a decade when diesel power finally came to the fore in heavy trucking operations in North America thanks to the input of Buda, Hercules Waukesha and Cummins. 160 pages, Approx 300 b/w & colour images. s/b.
