Wine Truck

 Portland, CT

If one were to just look at this truck, you'd think this winery has been in business for generations.  The truck appears to be rather weathered, even down to the  name on the door.  Still this truck does have a certain bit of charm, even if it never did haul these wine barrels around this winery. 


  1. There is probably an industry in making new trucks look old.

  2. Ed, that's a wonderful old truck. It is a 1948-49 Ford F-5 one ton flatbed that originally came with a flathead V-8 motor. In running condition it would make a great parade vehicle for the winery, and it could be used to haul stuff around. Could be an advertising write-off for them. Nice photo.
