This could be for "the most recent pre-1940 vehicle you saw on the street," because all three vehicles I saw today are no newer than 1939!

1927 Ford Model T runabout with a custom boat-tail speedster body (now it could have been a '28 or '29 Model A, but I know boat-tails were more common on the T chassis, so this is an educated guess!);

1931 Chevrolet International series 1 1/2-ton flatbed-stake truck; restored by a local Coors beer distributor and on display at the 75th-anniversary celebration of the St. Louis-based Schnucks supermarket chain, along with;

1939 Chevrolet 1/2-ton pickup; resto-mod in red with black fenders, powered by a more-recent Chevy 230 six-cylinder and a Powerglide transmission, but was attractive and not unlike the truck the Schncks family may have used at their first store 75 years ago!

1965 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special 4-door sedan; black, with what looked like a vinyl top. I say "what looked like" because the top fabric was missing, and the roof looked like it was rusted all over (no surprise given the nature of vinyl tops!). Otherwise, restoration appears fairly easy! In Granite City, IL.
