NOTE ESPECIALLY THE '53 AND (edit--1978?) DODGES, AND THE '58 JEEP! AND DON'T FORGET THE 1956 POWELL (PLYMOUTH?!) Exhibit open now through April 6, 2014!
I find this show to be timely, given the revival of sales and competition in the truck market, and given the big questions of where Chrysler and the industry will go in terms of future opportunities of this segment and its offshoots!!!
Exhibit Title, "Pickups: The Art Of Utility".
"Created to be a functional workhorse, the pickup truck has evolved into a high profile means of personal expression. The Petersen Automotive Museum’s newest exhibition, Pickups: The Art of Utility illustrates how vehicles with such modest and practical beginnings have matured to become everyday high-tech luxury vehicles for some and indispensable tools of the trade for others. Vehicles on display include: 1909 International Harvester, 1932 Ford B pickup, 1934 Hudson Terraplane pickup, 1938 American Bantam, 1941 Studebaker Coupe Delivery, 1941 Chevrolet ½ Ton, 1942 Crosley, 1948 GMC, 1952 Ford (Marmon-Harrington-4-Wheel Drive), 1953 Dodge Swivel Frame, 1956 Powell, 1958 Ford Ranchero, 1958 Jeep, 1959 Datsun, 1968 Volkswagen, 1968 pro-touring Chevrolet C-10, 1980 Dodge Little Red Express, 2000 Ford Ranger EV and 2002 Isuzu Axiom XSR."
