Roberts' Load 'n' Dump Truck - 1948
The Robert's Load 'n' Dump truck was not a pretty sight. It looked like a bit of an over-achiever with
that gigantic bed - totally out of proportion to the cab. It has what we call a "unique charm."
What is that coming down the street? Look out
for those side handles!
Fill it and crush it.
It did have a nice grille .
The bed is activated by a leaf spring! Only time
I've ever seen it done that way.
This ad from the February, 1949 issue of
Playthings magazine identifies the inaugural
year of the Robert's Load 'n' Dump Truck as
1948. No mention is made of the Robert's vans.
