I had the exact truck- 1954 R-110 model! Mine was chalky red (faded) with "Esso" in an oval on the left door and Woody Woodpecker head in an oval on the right door. What a great truck they are!!!

Old film too.
And in period correct black and white.

The Woody Woodpecker logo was for Thrush Mufflers or Ray Smith "Mr. Horsepower" Cams.

thanks Bill, actually shot on B&W film

I would have liked to have been able to have it moved away from the new vehicles and done a proper portrait

Hey Rick,

I apologize for intruding on your thread but thought I would add this. And not too far from where you guys were shooting Sunday.

Here's a couple pictures of my '51 Chevy pick up truck that I got in 1995 in Long Beach CA while visiting a circuit board supplier out there.

I was looking for a retirement present for myself and paid $5,000 for the truck and $875 to ship it home in Webster NY. I sold it locally a couple years ago for $10,000.

A nice clean 98% original truck that was a trouble free driver. Kinda wish I still had it.

great looking truck Bill, i wish you still had it too :rotf:

that model Chevy -1st series or as they called it when announced in '47 "the advanced design" has always been, in my opinion, the best looking pick up ever built

Great truck Bill. I had a '53, red. If it had been a 5-window I might still have it! Actually I sold it in 1968 and bought a new F-150, also a great truck but not nearly as cool.

And not to hijack, but this was parked outside my Dr.'s office the other day. No badges I could see as to the make. but it had a sticker on the back that said "If I went any faster I'd kill my hamster."

looks like a Mini

I am dating myself a bit but the Woody Woodpecker head in the oval was also an Esso mascot in the 50's. My truck was a service station truck with very low mileage and a mint condition green and tan interior.
Bill that is a beauty that you had!
