General Motors, Dodge and International Harvester made trucks like this in the '30s and 40's. Ford didn't, they had outside builders.

Here is a '37 Chevrolet. It has role up fabric on each side. What were these trucks called and what were they used for?

I never knew much about these models with canvas roll-ups side and rear.

Something so appealing about these. I'd luv to buy corn form one.

Here's a pristine '48 Chevrolet Canopy Express:
