Truck transportation came a long way

For the first few years of the “horseless carriage,” motor vehicles were lightweight and intended to carry a few passengers only. Human nature being what it is, men soon began exploring ways to carry heavier loads and a few light gasoline and electric powered delivery wagons were available by 1900.

Many of these early motor vehicles rolled on the same wooden wheels and solid rubber tires as the carriages they soon replaced, while others were equipped with the high-pressure air tires used on bicycles.
