Postal Service to Issue Pickup Trucks Forever Stamps in July
Debut to Take Place at Syracuse Nationals Car Show
Earlier this year, we reported on the commissioning of a series of Pickup Trucks Forever stamps from the U.S. Postal Service. The initial release said the stamps would be available starting in 2016 but did not give a specific date. Today, the U.S. Postal Service has announced the stamps will officially debut at the 2016 Syracuse Nationals car show at the New York State fairgrounds in Syracuse on July 15, 2016. The series features four iconic trucks from the ’30s through the ’60s: the 1938 International Harvester D-2, the 1948 Ford F-1, the 1953 Chevrolet, and the 1965 Ford F-100.
The stamps will be issued in booklets of 20 stamps and will be equal in value to current Forever series first-class mail stamps when they go on sale. The current first-class mail rate is 47 cents. The Postal Service has issued several auto-related stamp series over the past several years, including traditional hot rods in 2014 and American muscle cars, including the 1966 Pontiac GTO, 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500, 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle, and 1970 Plymouth Barracuda. Stamps will be available for order starting July 15 at usps.com or from your local post office.
