Love all of these, including the abandoned house!

The old station wagon reminded me when I was a kid, my father had an old GM station wagon, that to fill the gas tank, one of the tail lights (I think driver side?) swiveled to the side. That is how you filled the gas tank on that station wagon!

Anyone remember which year/model that might have been?

Manufacturers also started to hide filler caps behind license plate holders that were hinged to be able to pull down out of the way. During the summer of 1962, after my Junior year in high school, I worked at a mom & pop grocery store - gas station and it used to drive me crazy sometimes trying to remember where the gas cap was on any particular car that rolled up.

Yep, back then, we pumped the gas, washed the windshield, checked the oil and water too. I think gas was about 31¢ a gallon then.

the triple 5 Chevrolets (55-56-57) had the gas filler neck behind the left rear turnsignal/tail light

Does anyone remember what you had to do to open these? Just curious!

I don't recall ever seeing one with 8-hole wheels; 'F3' must mean 3/4-ton or something like that.


Panasonic S1R, Pan.-S 24-105/4, Sigma adapter, Canon EF16-35/4/L/IS, TS-Es in 24mm (gen.2) and 50mm Macro (gen.3), and a 100-400L II.

How does the F rating equate to actual payload?
I'm ignorant.
F-1 ½ ton 4,700 lb (2,132 kg) Pickup truck
I'm trying to work out where the ½ ton fits into 4700lb.
Not trying to be smart, just revealing my ignorance :oops:

i believe the 4,700lb is the weight of the truck with fluids.

the 1/2 ton rating is the payload capability with occupants.

of course everyone at one time or another will put more than 1,000lbs of payload in the truck.
