There is no billboard more dynamic or memorable than an 80,000-pound tractor-trailer rolling down the American highway at 70 miles an hour! Since the early days of the motor truck industry, companies have plastered the sides of their trucks and trailers with free advertising for products. This practice has beautified the landscape for more than a century, and there is no end to the graphic creativity.

Organized chronologically, Traveling Billboards: Tractor-Trailers as Rolling Advertisements 1900–2010 features brands from giants in the transportation field including Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack, White-Freightliner, Brockway, Peterbilt, Diamond T, and more. Captions are complete with detailed information about the tractors, trailers, and companies promoting their services. If you or someone you know is interested in the history of big truck advertising and its evolution, Traveling Billboards is a must-buy!

FWD Trucks 1910-1974 Photo Archive

Established in 1910, The Four Wheel Drive Auto Company was created to produce automobiles. The Battleship, America's "first successful four-wheel-drive automobile," was offered for sale in the company's 1911 sales catalog. However, the start of World War I in 1914 and the unsuccessful expedition to Mexico to capture Pancho Villa in 1916 led to a change and the production of over 24,000 Four Wheel Drive Model B trucks. Over the years, FWD produced a variety of specialized vehicles for road construction and maintenance, snow removal, utility construction, oil exploration and production, cement mixers, logging, and even school buses.
