The American Truck Historical Society held its annual convention and truck show in a virtual format in late May.

In the videos below, get a view of a number of trucks from the 1950s that participated in the truck show portion of ATHS’ virtual event. The fourth video below features trucks from 1959 through 1962. Featured trucks include a 1950 Peterbilt 350, a 1953 Kenworth 525, a 1955 Brockway 155W and many more.

The group created 23 videos spanning 118 years of trucks, starting with a video showing trucks from 1902 to 1929 and ending with one that includes trucks from 1996 to 2020. In total, more than 1,400 trucks participated in the event.
