About Stamp

The third set of Historic Land Vehicles stamps - to be issued once again in a souvenir sheet format - depicts farm and frontier vehicles, including three used on farms and three used in off-road conditions. Following the First World War, Canadian farmers realizes the many advantages of owning a truck, from less expensive Ford models to premium-priced models built by companies such as the Gotfredson Truck Corporation. Canadian production began in 1920 with a range of commercial vehicles, taxis, fire truck chassis and busses. Costumers were impressed by the rugged construction and the cast-aluminum radiators. The truck also boasted Buda and Hercules engines, Timken and Clark axles and Brown-Lipe transmissions. The Canadian plant, reorganized in 1929, continued to produce Gotfredson trucks until 1936.
