Semi-Trucks of the 1950s: A Photo Gallery Semi-Trucks of the 1950s: A Photo Gallery
by Ron Adams
After WWII Americans were anxious to re-stoke the economy
after a long "make-do with what you have" dry spell. By the
1950s new highways were being built, new trucking companies
were being formed and old ones revived. Americans were
buying newly-styled cars and the latest technologies once
again. Semi-trucks helped pave the way for this huge growth
spurt in America with dependable trucks built by Mack, GMC,
Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, International, White Freightliner,
Peterbilt, Kenworth, Diamond T, Reo, Autocar, Brockway,
Sterling and others, many using the increasingly popular diesel
engines made by Buda, Hercules, Waukesha, and Cummins,
which helped their heavy loads haul quicker. Ron Adams
portrays this booming era with over 300 superb photos of
trucks hauling cement, fuel, and a variety of goods to
enthusiastic Americans.
