Peterbilt Trucks 1939-1979: At Work (At Work Series)

Building trucks for many local businesses along the West Coast, Peterbilt Trucks had to prove themselves on winding rugged mountain roads, and once they did, the trucks became known as ''betterbilt'' Peterbilts among enthusiasts.

Beginning in 1939 when Peterbilt was formed (after acquiring Fageol trucks), this golden era of trucking is portrayed through large format photographs taken at the time when these heavy haulers were put to work. See them in action and read about both the trucks and companies and owners who operated them.
