Two days ago, saw an aquamarine/baby blue pickup truck with two front ends welded together on the highway. I think it was either on Rt3S or I93S. It was quite stunning - at least from a few car lengths away. Does anyone have information on it? I'd like to see it again.

As in welded together back to back?

There was a yellow 70's F Series done that way in the Plymouth area...

What town/area was this in?

That was the Whichway truck, and I remember it quite well as I lived about 3 miles from where it was parked when not in use years ago. Haven't seen that truck in quite some time. No idea on the blue one the OP mentioned, but I'll keep my eyes peeled.

In reply to dean1484: Yes, there were two front ends welded together. I came up to it and thought - hey what am I looking at, at first I thought it was being towed. As I got closer, I saw the front was the same as the back!

North of Boston, on 3S, or 95S. Kind of stunned, I didn't take notice of where I was! You know, it could have been a F series, just looked it up. Most closely matches a fifth generation from what I remember of the grill. 1967-72. Same car? but a repaint?

Back when I worked at a Chevy dealer on the "Automile" in Norwood MA in 2001, there was a parts runner truck from Mirak Chevy/Ford, another local dealer, that had a Ford Econoline nose on one end and a Chevy Van nose on the other. I saw it once, and it broke my brain. Since the thing you saw was truck based, I'm guessing it's not the same one.
