(Disneyland, c.1963-79) This is the original Global Van Lines moving truck from the Global Van Lines building at Disneyland. The Global Van Lines moving truck was a Main Street landmark, with its likeness appearing in Disneyland postcards, toys, and countless photos and home videos as a popular photo location. This early Disneyland vehicle was built by famed Imagineer Bob Gurr in the early 1960s and was operable during its first few years before being modified to a static display vehicle around the mid-1970s. After Global Van Lines ended its Disneyland sponsorship in 1979, this vehicle left the park and was later sold. This vehicle has been faithfully restored with the help of Bob Gurr to its original functioning, museum quality condition. The truck's C-cab body is original, and has been restored back to its functioning condition. The chassis was created by modifying a Model-A Ford to resemble the chassis of the early 1900's. The wheels are from a vintage Model-T Ford fire chief car from the early 1900s, and the engine and forward part of the chassis are from a 1928 Ford Sedan. The motor is a four cylinder "flathead" Ford, and the radiator, hood, and windshield frame are 1914 reproductions. The blue paint was matched from the original truck body paint, and the seat and signage were reproduced from vintage Disneyland photos. The vehicle measures 189" long, 70" wide, and 86" tall, and is in very fine condition. This item will require special shipping arrangements, please contact us for inquiries and estimates.
