Streamlined COE fuel tanker of unknown make built for Gilmore, 1935, either by

Good looking rolling advertisement, some think it was a White designed by Count de Sakhnovsky, and others think it was designed by Wellington Everett Miller

the above 2 photos are from Steve, and he looked up this tanker, and these photos were taken during the Yosemite Economy runs, 1936-38

    1. No, but if you google it, and find out that Jimmy Hoffa was buried in it, I'll not be surprised. Or that it was turned in for WW2 scrap drives.
