From Hemmings: The Pinto Air Freight Crosley mini-semi was built in the 1950s by John Giordano Sr. and Biagio R. Pinto and later it rested in a junkyard in Middlesex, New Jersey. A Chevrolet four-cylinder engine had been swapped in. Those photos were taken around 1973 at the Pinto Trucking Service corporate office in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania. (There was a nearly-identical Crosley Semi in Bay City, Michigan owned by Dobson Motor Freight on Wilder Rd. It sat there for years and is now gone.) Frank Pinto now owns this. His father built it and his brother Bob told him where it was and gave it to him in 2009. His hopes are to redo the truck first and the trailer later.
