That Truck

This World War II vintage truck hauling 55 gallon drums of gasoline up and down the Ledo Road caught my eye. Clearly a "no-frills" work truck.  The upholstery and dashboard are especially noteworthy. The owners told me that the vehicle had been in continual service for over 50 years. [NOTE: The truck was waiting for the ferry - as was I - when I filmed this (see Crossing the Taron)].

I really have no idea where you might find more information about the old trucks working up and down the Ledo Road. They are so much a part of the daily reality here that they are not even noticed by the local folks.
