Those sleepers over the cab go back a long way. Photo from Dan Souday.

Give it to the WLF's. This truck is a 1936 Ward LaFrance with a Cummins diesel, pulling a Trailmobile TD-62 semi trailer. I don't really know any more about this model other than what is in the caption below, except that Ward LaFrance COE's were pretty rare. That sleeper sure was ahead of it's time, this style was seen again in the 1950's. Warren Richardson had this 1st; thanks to Dan Souday for the photo.

How in the dickens do you get in and out of that sleeper? crawl up through a hatch, close it and lay on top of it?
