RealRides of WNY #2567 ......................... 1948 Chevrolet pickup

– The owner of this 1948 Chevrolet pickup told me it used to be painted in the old-timey livery of the Coca-Cola Company — yellow with a white roof. You can still see bits of yellow poking through the fading red paint here and there. The truck also sports an old, faded Georgia safety inspection sticker in the bottom corner of the windshield. Perhaps it was a Coke factory truck, as Coca-Cola has been headquartered in Atlanta since its founding in 1892. Below is a die-cast Coke truck found for sale on Amazon — the only rendering we could come up with that has the yellow/white two-tone combo. Today’s RealRide was seen at last summer’s Harbor Cruise car show at Point Gratiot Park.
