Are you looking for a gift for a trucks enthusiast? Books about trucks and posters that depict trucks are two kinds of gifts that most trucks people appreciate. Use these suggestions to find something for the pickup truck lover on your gift list.
This 96-page book offers a good history of the pickup truck, along with excellent color plats of trucks from the 50s. You'll find pickups from Ford, Chevy and Dodge, including vehicles we don't often see, like the Chevy Cameo Carrier and the Dodge Sweptside D100. The author also covered trucks from Willys, International and Studebaker.
Twenty-four popular and rare trucks are depicted on this 26" x 38" color poster. It's available unframed or framed, or can be mounted or laminated.
Vintage Ford truck fans should like this 1956 F100 poster. It's available in seven sizes, from 12" x 16" to a whopping 48" x 64", framed or unframed. Mounting is available, and the print can be transferred to canvas if you like.
You'll have fun reading author John Jerome's sometimes discouraging, but often hilarious, journey to rebuild his old Dodge pickup up. The book's as much about the ups and downs of restoration as it is a look at the tips and techniques used to get the job done -- but those are included. It's a good read.
Here's a perfect gift for Model A truck fans. The photo print is available in a range of sizes, from small to extra-large -- you can surely find one to suit your needs. You can have the photo framed, mounted, or transferred to canvas -- or buy it as-is to work with yourself.
Ford truck fans will like this one. Ninety-six pages in all, the book is packed with color photos of classic Ford pickup trucks, like Model T and Model A, the F-Series up to 1994, Rancheros, Broncos and more. The photos would be enough to make this book worthwhile, but the author also covers some of the nitty-gritty details of Ford truck history.
Here's one for the Jeep fans out there. The framed photo print measures 21" x 29" and depicts two jeeps at dusk, off-road on a mountain trail.
