1935 Chevrolet Maple Leaf
17 January 2002
Hey There! Last month I was up to the Reynolds Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. The restoration shop there has just completed a 1935 Maple Leaf truck.
From the museum:
"The Maple Leaf 2-ton truck went on sale in the 1930's but history does not record precisely when. Mention of the Maple Leaf may first be found in advertising in 1934. The Maple Leaf immediately established itself as a threat to its arch-rival, Ford. The Maple Leaf name continued to go on 2 and 2-1/2-ton truck suntil after World War II.
"In 1935 there were 167 trucks registered in Alberta with Class A freight licenses. By far the most popular were the Chevrolet 2-ton trucks, with 44 licensed."
