Owner: Richard Carroll
Not only is this 1937 GMC T-14 very unusual but it is one of the only remaining examples of a pure original in existence. It is a part of history and will remain un-restored.
Owner Richard Carroll, of Greenfield, Massachusetts saw this little ½ ton 40 years ago with a for sale sign in the window. It had been used on a farm in Swansea, Massachusetts, by the original owner and showed 15,000 miles. In the glove box were the Certificate of War Necessity Papers. This allowed 30 gallons of gasoline per quarter and for farm use only during the World War II shortages. Even in 1967 it was quite unusual and Richard just had to own it.
He now drives it for pleasure only during nice weather and has added 26,000 miles during the last 40 years. Several years ago, the Danbury Mint (producer of authentic models) heard about this rare pickup. They spent much time measuring and photographing this vehicle. In 2005 they introduced an authentic model of this 1937. It can now be purchased from their catalog of special vehicles.
