History of Trucks

History of Trucks

by Bruce LaFontaine




It's hard to imagine the history of transportation without trucks — pickups, tankers, tractor-trailers, logging trucks, tow trucks, flat-beds, delivery vans — trucks of all shapes and sizes, carrying the cargo, hauling the freight, transporting every imaginable kind of goods all over the world.
Now truck lovers and coloring book fans can enjoy this ready-to-color convoy of vintage (and modern) trucks, ranging from a 1904 Oldsmobile light delivery car to a 1995 Ford Explorer sport utility vehicle. Forty-one meticulously detailed illustrations, including four double-page spreads, depict such mechanical marvels as a Ford Model T closed cab delivery truck (1913), a GMC tractor with sleeper cab (1932), a Chevrolet half-ton pickup truck (1939), a Dodge Ram 528 "Retriever" tow truck (1985) and many more.
Coloring book enthusiasts and anyone interested in the exciting history of trucks will welcome this pictorial parade, complete with an informative introduction and identifying captions, of a long line of freight-haulers and service vehicles.
