This 1933 Ford postcard describes the truck and trailer unit as being a V-8 Semi-Trailer Coach. It had seating for twenty-six with room for twenty standees. The rig is quite uncommon as the drivers compartment is located inside of the trailer and the pivot point is at about the point where the driver sat. We would like to know more about this unique vehicle and its drivers compartment. Can any of our readers find any more information about it?
The 1933 Ford Truck and Tanker Trailer below got gasoline mileage of 13-1/5 miles per gallon, with no oil needing to be added between 1000 mile changes. The card also mentions the low engine exchange cost when a replacement was needed. The Car-Tyr Company Inc. that hauled its gasoline and oil drums with it was located, in Minnesota.
