United States Postal Service to Release Pickup Truck Stamp Collection in 2016
International Harvester, Chevrolet and Ford Featured




Quote :
“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

While that’s the motto of the United States Postal Service (USPS), it could well be the slogan for any number of pickup trucks. Their similar missions, getting work done in the face of any circumstance, could be one reason why post offices nationwide will soon be stocking the stamps pictured above, featuring four of America’s most beloved pickups.

Included in the Forever stamp collection are the 1938 International Harvester D-2, 1953 Chevrolet, 1948 Ford F-1, and 1965 Ford F-100, each chosen for the distinct new features they brought to the pickup market.

According to the USPS, the International Harvester’s barrel-shaped grille and elegant styling mirrored the look of luxury cars of the era, with its windswept chrome accents and horizontal hood vents. Similarly, the 1953 Chevrolet’s styling and design gave it great outward visibility and attractive curves. One of Ford’s most famous trucks, the 1948 F-1, had a roomy cab theretofore unheard of in the segment, and the later 1965 F-100 debuted the company’s famous and longstanding Twin I-Beam independent front suspension.

The collection celebrates “the rugged and reliable work vehicles that Americans have driven for nearly a century,” according to a press release from the USPS. Illustrator Chris Lyons penned the attractive imagery under the direction of Antonio Alcalá.

Those will be nice stamps. I don't know anyone that doesn't like the old style trucks no matter what the brand.

I love seeing those old pickups. Too bad Dodge wasn't seen to have added significantly distinct new features to the pickup but I guess they're FCA now. Smile

Well they do offer a turbo and an automatic on their diesel option now!
Wasn't the Perkins a N/A and manual trans only option?

No numbers so they must be forever stamps. Good.
