“A Peer Among Trucks” - 1967 Baron Truck:…and this Baron...


Recommended Posts

"A Peer Among Trucks?" What does that even mean?

 

"It's a truck like other trucks!"

 

"If you need a truck, this is a truck!"
 

"Does truck things like a truck!"

 

"No better or worse than any other truck!"

 

"As much of a truck as any other truck you'd buy!"

 

It's like when my 10th grade history teacher let us fill out our own progress reports. Mine said simply, "Matthew is definitely getting a grade!"

 

Not really inspiring ad copy and it looks suspiciously like a Ford...

I had not heard of a Baron truck but I thought the cab looked familiar.  Check this page   -   http://www.commer.org.nz/RestorationsCollections/NewZealandRestosCollections/RichardsonCollection/RichardsonCollection.html   - scroll down to the 1955 Superpoise.
