Hershey Antique Auto Museum Part 3

Hershey Autos Part #3
AACA Museum
Hershey, Pennsylvania

 

A few of my favorites from my visit to the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania. I apologize in advance for the quality and angle of some of the photos. I’m not a talented photographer to begin with — and the lighting and spacing of the vehicles really presented a challenge. I tried to keep the barriers out of the shots; but they really prevent better angles on some photographs.

If you are in the Hershey area, the museum is well worth a visit! I’ll be posting them in groups – to see more, just click the AACA tag at the end of this post 🙂

1938 AutoCar (Six-Cylinder 1200 Gallon Tanker)

I wish I could have taken a better picture of this – unfortunately, they really have it wedged in the display!

excerpt from the museum placard:
This style tanker was used by Atlantic Refining Company to haul refined petroleum products to dealers. This particular truck was rescued from a salvage yard and restored to its original condition. It is fully functional and was driven to the Museum for this exhibition. The body was built in Pennsylvania and the tank was built by Farrell Manufacturing Company in Joliet, Illinois.

1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe Convertible Coupe

excerpt from the museum placard:
In 1941, Chevrolet introduced a completely new body. Concealed safety steps replaced traditional running boards and the Special Deluxe had a long list of factory options.

 

1942 Ford JPW Military Vehicle Prototype

excerpt from the museum placard:
Ford created the JPW to provide the U.S. military with a light scout vehicle – ultimately the military opted go with the Willys-Overland Jeep (based on a Bantam Car Company design)
