Design Research Van, San Francisco, 1960's

Design Research van, SF

The Design Research Dodge A-100 van circa 1966-
a moving advertisement as it made daily deliveries around San Francisco.
From the awesome and highly recommended book Design Research: The Store That Brought Modern Living to American Homes, by Jane Thompson and Alexandra Lange, which deserves a much bigger blog post.
How great would it have been if DR had a Corgi toy made of the painted van and sod it in their stores?!

It would be my second choice of toy van after Tricky's:
