Front Drivers Seat

5 of 8
The front seat is roomy and the dash has that typical ’50s mix of simplicity and style. The seat is relatively comfortable, very comfortable by ’50s truck standards. The B-Line got a better heater/defroster in 1959, which you can see under the dash on the right. It was optional over no heater at all but in those days, heaters weren’t standard installations. And air conditioning from the factory? Fogetaboutit. The Travelall didn’t have factory-installed air until the ’61 C-Line debuted. The optional radio mounted on the roof, above the rear view mirror.
