This style tanker was used by Atlantic Refining Company to haul refined petroleum products to their dealers. During the 1936 floods, Atlantic provided this tanker to the community of Harrisburg at no charge to haul water. This particular truck was rescued from a salvage yard and restored to its original condition. It is fully functional and was driven into the Museum for this exhibition.
