Pickups: The Art Of Utility
Petersen Automotive Museum Honors Trucks That Work
Created to be a functional workhorse, the pickup truck has evolved into a high-profile means of personal expression.
The Petersen Automotive Museum's newest exhibition, Pickups: The Art of Utility, illustrates how vehicles with such modest and practical beginnings have matured to become everyday high-tech luxury vehicles for some and indispensable tools of the trade for others. Vehicles on display include: 1909 International Harvester, 1932 Ford B pickup, 1934 Hudson Terraplane pickup, 1938 American Bantam, 1941 Studebaker Coupe Delivery, 1941 Chevrolet ½-ton, 1942 Crosley, 1948 GMC, 1952 Ford (Marmon-Herrington four-wheel), 1953 Dodge Swivel Frame, 1956 Powell, 1958 Ford Ranchero, 1958 Jeep, 1959 Datsun, 1968 Volkswagen, 1968 pro-touring Chevrolet C-10, 1980 Dodge Li'l Red Express, 2000 Ford Ranger EV, and 2002 Isuzu Axiom XSR.
The trucks will be on display until April 6, 2014.
