Trucks, give me trucks!!! --- I'M LIKING TRUCKSWhen we see what we want to see, and hear what we want to hear---- all too often we miss the point!


I'm where I'm at when I'm all there! But,when I'm here, how can I be all there?

G.W. -- As you well know (unless you memory is failing again) First Gear refused my request on this item. So in the meantime these will have to do --

I don't have any info on whether these two movie vans are the same, although they certainly could be. But I do know there were others built, as shown by these two photos from Don MacKenzie. I'd say you are right about them being model 805's, but I'm not a White expert. The big winged White emblem on the Dillner van was used in 1941 and later, so the Allied van is older.
