Orignal Helms Bakery Truck For Sale

A classic car enthusiast at Hemmings.com is offering one of the 140 trucks built for Helms Bakery in Culver City for sale for $22,500. These trucks are called Divcos, and this one, located in Merced, California, is from 1939.

Here's the seller's description from the site:

They were designed and built only for the Helms Bakery located in Culver City Ca. These trucks were driven all over Southern California selling bread and pastries door to door. Each truck had a very distinctive horn that the driver would sound. These horns are very rare and are almost impossible to find. This truck has it’s original horn and it is in excellent condition. The truck runs and has it’s original running gear. There is some surface rust around the nose and tail. The truck has a clean title. This is one of very few chances you will ever have to own a icon of early Southern California. This is one of 140 built and it is very rare one comes up for sale in this condition. This truck is in great condition as the photos clearly show.

Yes, but it appears the pastry cabinet and drawers are missing from this truck...

Can't you just smell the drawers full of donuts?
