Things keep showing up cheap and it is hard to resist.
I just purchased this old BEER truck body and I am try to decide if it is old enough to go on a TT truck. It measures 7 ft wide and 10 ft long. It would fit on a stretch frame TT that I have.
I looked at an old beer truck web site, but have not found any good examples of this body on a TT.
Any ideas or comments appreciated. (I am not planning to haul real beer, just empty cases)
I don't know exactly how old it is either, but I think it would make a GREAT TT beer truck. My vote is do it!!
1. What does "Aged Bigh" mean?
2. Why on earth would you go to all the trouble and expense of building a truly great beer truck then use it to haul empties?
Looks like a fun bed to put on a TT
BTW, the sign reads AGED RIGHT, a few painted letters are missing
The Lone Star Brewing Company, which opened its doors in 1940, began producing the "national beer of Texas" after owners acquired the Lone Star Beer copyright. The original Lone Star beer went out of business in 1918.
Dang. Thanks Dan. I dunno if I'm "aged right", but the older I get.......
You'll have to buy a 1940 V-8 Ford truck for it.
Steve is right - according to Wikipedia (gasp), Although the Lone Star Brewery was built in 1884, they didn't market a beer called "Lone Star" until 1940.
Nothing like a perfect excuse to buy another truck!
Thanks for the response, not the answer I wanted, but the TT and a 1932 model B are my two choices without as Steve said, buy another truck.
I do remember some similar truck beds use in the 1950's. They had the slanted floors like this one and roll-up doors over the individual compartments.
I would go with the '32, since the 18th amendment was in effect from 1920 - 1933 that would make for precious few TT beer trucks
I guess I could call it a "Moonshine" hauler but I would have to remove the beer logo. I think moonshine hauling was done with no advertising as it was illegal.
Some of my family made a little moonshine as they were German and trying to keep them from an occasional drink was totally unfair. They only sold a little but never got caught.
Good to hear from you.
