As a kid, I lived in Brooklyn from 1942 till about 1952 and remember those trucks. They were big and green and made hardly any noise, just a slight whirring sound. Our laundry man "Dick" gave me a short ride down the street (E 17th st) in one once.

I have a panel of the pilgrim holding his rifle from the side of the truck. My father was one of the drivers, late 30's early 40's.. My grandfather cut the panel and made a coffee table, we took the panel off and have just that. Would like to see what the truck looked like.
