New Truck Production
Reaches Highest Level
In co n trast to passenger ca r pro­
duction, output of trucks is at a new
record level, according to N orthern
T ru st com pany.
"While slightly m ore than one
million units were produced in
1941,“ the com pany said, “ the war
was an im portant influence, as 21
per cent of production consisted of
m ilitary vehicles. L ast y ea r m ili­
ta ry truck production fell to only
about 2,000, a negligible precentage
of total truck production."
D uring 1946, 5,700,000 trucks were
reg istered in the United States,
about 900,000 above any previous
year, with cu rren t estim ates ru n ­
ning to 6 500.000 reg istratio n s for
1947. Because of lack of civilian
production during the w ar years,
ho-vever, scrapping of trucks was
held at a m inim um , av erag in g 150,-
