Truck Information:
White Motor Company manufactured their Model 612 from 1931 to 1934, making a total of 825 trucks. This 1933 insulated White delivery truck was one of six originally built for the Mars Candy Company. It was sold in April of the following year to Joe Patrovsky of Antioch, Illinois. His company, Antioch Packing House, was known for specialized smoked meats. Patrovsky had his own label for Jo-Pat brand of hickory smoked ham, bacon, and sausage – one of which carried the name “Antioch Special.” The Patrovsky family sold the business in the early 1990s, but the Antioch Packing House with its Jo-Pat brand continued until 2019, 103 years after opening. The company used this truck for deliveries until 1968 when it was replaced with a Ford Econoline Van. This is a stylish, well-built truck with some interesting features. There is a small fold-down writing platform inside the heavy metal door on the driver’s side, a closet where the driver could hang a coat, and a fold-down seat on the passenger side. The seat could be folded up and the driver could exit curbside. Also, the side windows roll up and down, and the windshield partially opens out for ventilation. Though the truck is insulated, it does not have a refrigeration unit. After more than 30 years of continuous use, the doors still open and close easily. Top Speed: 35 MPH
