A couple guys were talking in the old pics thread about a nice old tanker truck. I didn't want to mud up that thread so I thought I would just post this here. It's a catalog for a company that built and installed the tanks on your chassis I guess. I bought it cuz I thought the trucks were cool!!!
The Gulf tank on the second truck on the cover, or the Texaco at the bottom of the cover, look a lot like the tank on the Studebaker that they were talking about.

Maybe Jack or someone can tells us more. Not so much about just this company, but trucks in general.

I don't have this catalog, but I have a few ads from them.

Quaker was not far from where I grew up in Philadelphia. It was in Kensington.

Top of third page, Sunoco tanker is cool. Reminds me of the Buddy L pressed tin Texaco tanker trucks.

Thanks for posting this SC62 . I think it's interesting how they can streamline something so large and make it look good.
