This 1922 Carnival/Circus truck was first built in North Tonawanda, New York for a brewery. North Tonawanda was the home to both the Allan Herschell Company, which manufactured carousels, and the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company, which manufactured carousel organs. Today it is the home of the Herschell Carousel Museum. The unit was originally built on a 1922 Overland chassis and was later put on a 1932 Plymouth Chassis. It features a rear door as well as an additional door on the side. The mechanical giant on the front stands about nine feet tall and when the vehicle is in motion his legs walk giving the illusion that he is pulling the truck. His head can be operated independently to go from side to side, and the 1920's sound system features large trumpet speakers that allow the driver to talk through the giant. It was purchased by Mickey Percell in Rochester, New York to use as an advertising sound truck for his traveling carnival Pioneer Shows and was later displayed at his amusement park in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Pioneer Shows operated in the northern tier of Pennsylvania and the southern tier of New York.
