F Model in Wytheville VA

15 posts in this topic

I was coming through Wytheville yesterday and saw a decent-looking F model being used as a billboard along 77, possibly for a driving school. Anybody have a name or photo of the truck? I don't see many Fs in Ohio any more. Also saw a B on a trailer rolling down the interstate, in mint condition with a custom body on the back...possibly some type of food service body.

It's been a long time,67, but I seem to recall that F model along 77 years ago! Do you run 77 a lot?  if so did  that F model seem to be recently parked along 77? I used to run that route a lot  and that F just rings a bell!

Was it a burgundy color B?

It was a sign for a driving school. I don't know if the school is still open anymore but the truck has been there for years.

I don't run 77 a lot...the truck looks like it's been there a while (no engine in it). According to the Google it's for Alliance Tractor Trailer Training...still in business.

I actually don't remember the color...the truck had been restored (looked fantastic) and had a custom body on the back.

Wasn't there a B for sale with a moving body on it?  Seems it was burgundy in color.  Not sure if I saw it posted here, WOT or where?

If I recall, wasn't there an F model with trailer used as a billboard on Rt 36, west of 77?  Over by Mason Truck parts.

The was a green B on here with a brick pizza oven but it was open sides. This one is / was forsale in Orange County N.Y.  I think it was listed here too.   Paul

I believe its black with a red strip. Its on the south bound side just before the TA.  Its been there atleast since 2000.

Google Earth streetview shows it hooked to twin trailers.  Can't see it close up, however.

The B I saw had open sides so that could be it.

Yeah, I tried for years to get a decent drive-by picture of it, but never could.
