Just baked: 1948 Helm’s Bakery Truck by Divco

ScreenShot009

This truck represents one of the mores which have been lost through the years. Once there was a carefree and simplier America where “house wives would flock to the Trucks for fresh loaves of bread, pastries, cream puffs, and other baked delicacies”. This truck was one of those.

This truck is said to be one of the fifty to be still in existence now. And, moreover, trucks built for Helm’s Bakery were built upon particular specifications which made them standing out of the crowd of the other bakery delivery trucks.

The wood cabinets are in almost perfect status; everything on this truck smells of authenticity. The seller says that the engine had a little overhauling including a new radiator and generator, so it drives well. Find this oddity for sale at $39,000 here in Orange County, CA.
