Vintage Ford Truck Stamps are Available Now
You remember those cool stamps that feature classic Ford trucks we told you about in June? You can now get a book of them.
The set of four first-class Pickup Trucks Forever stamps, which were designed by United States Postal Service (USPS) art director Antonio Alcalá and feature artwork by Chris Lyons, showcase a variety of pickups from yesteryear. There’s a dashing black and red 1938 International Harvester D-2 and a dreamy creamy yellow 1953 Chevy.
Then there’s what you all came here for: a pair of Ford trucks. Those are a handsome green 1948 Ford F-1, complete with five-bar grille and “Million Dollar Cab,” and a 1965 Ford F-100 riding on twin I-beam suspension hardware.
We spoke with Lyons over the phone. His favorite Ford of all time is the 1966 Mustang he used to own. His favorite Ford truck of the two on these stamps? The 1965 F-100. He said he loves the shape of it and its sky blue color. In Lyons’ opinion, its attractive shape broke the mold of pickup truck design. Clearly, he has an eye for automotive styling.
You can get the Pickup Trucks Forever stamps at your local post office. For you hardcore stamp collectors out there, hit this USPS link for instructions on how to order first-day-of-issue postmarks and first-day covers.
