During World War II there was a shortage of iron and steel due to the war effort. In the United States, toy manufacturers found it necessary to switch toy production from steel to wood. The trucks featured in this plan are copies of the actual toys which were made during the war years. Due to the fact they were made during the 1940s, they reflect the Art Deco styling of trucks made in the 1930s. The sweeping shape of the roof and fender mouldings reflect the design of these early vehicles.
