The prototype truck was produced from 1948 to 1952. The driver's side doesn't have an outside mirror. The model has a single driver's side windshield wiper, which apparently was standard at the time (an upgrade option was to have two windshield wipers). The chrome bumpers and grill were accurate for the first year. After that they were painted silver. The wheels are free-rolling, and the tires are made out of a rubber-like material. The hood opens to reveal the model's engine.
