1945 GMC Model AFR523 Tank Truck
This Sinclair Oil-liveried gasoline delivery truck was one of the first vehicles built (serial number 887) when civilian truck production began in the U.S. after the Allied victory in World War II. In fact, the first light trucks produced in the latter half of 1945 (basically carryovers from 1942) were dubbed “Victory” models and sported a conspicuous lack of chrome trim. Note the painted grille on this tanker.

  1. Great rendition — especially of the Cadillacs. When will we ever see another Cadillac to rival those shown here? We need a new icon without worrying about fuel efficiency and “organic” greenness.

  2. A bright red Cadillac convertible was my ideal car when I was a kid and it still is. They don’t make such gorgeous cars any longer.
