Great find, Warren.  4x4 Autocar, looks like a snow plow lift, but is the box insulated?  Some milk trucks (this box would have been for milk cans, maybe?) had snowplows. Big Blue Streak flathead, maybe from the mid 1930s?  Any more info?

Bruce, the box holds the mechanism for manually raising and lowering the plow that was mounted under the chassis. It is believed this model S170 Autocar was part of a snowplow fleet built for the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company around 1938. You can see some of the framework for the center plow in the last photo. Sadly this truck is very rough and has a rusted out frame, as besides plowing these trucks were also used to spread salt.

Reebie Storage has been around for a long time and is still in business today. They are agents for Allied Van Lines in Chicago. I've hauled some of their loads. They are one of the few teamsters moving operations still in business.

Interesting corn syrup on a Bud truck, maybe that will cause turmoil.

Regular corn squeezings (I'm exagerating) are syrup, but with more energy and chemistry they can concentrate the sugar.  The industry says this is natural, but like blending water in hydrogenated fats, the extra energy stores up in our bodies.  These two concentrations in processed foods have led to a lot of obesity.
