- Code Number:
Labatt's Streamliner, International Expo, Worlds Fair, Vancouver
- This distinctive truck was designed by Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky. The Streamliner was construed to be a goodwill ambassador for Labatt's, and its drivers were trained and expected to assist other motorists with breakdowns.
It was built specifically for Labatt's. It was co-built by the White Motor Company of Canada, Fruehauf Trailers and Smith Brothers Body Works, the first one being delivered in 1935. Today only one truck remains - the bright red 1947 model seen here.
