1918 Cretors Popcorn Wagon

The Sidewalk Popcorn wagon was purchased new by Bill Chelvin of California on April 6, 1918. Mr. Chelvin paid nearly a thousand dollars for the wagon. The wagon was then owned by Bill Trunell, who began a restoration on the wagon. 
The 1918 Model A Popcorn Wagon has leaf springs, original French plate beveled glass and the original gas lamp. The roof and wheels have been meticulously restored. A fuel tank, air pump and fuel tank gauge have been fitted to the wagon. The tongue for pulling the wagon was completely restored and fitted to the wagon. The sidewalk popcorn wagon has a horizontal steam engine which stirred the popcorn and operated the peanut roaster. A red and white roller curtain provides shade, while a hollow-wire gasoline lantern lights up the wagon at night. 
According to Pearson & Company, who specialize in the restoration of these popcorn wagons, only five of these popcorn wagons exist today. This is the most deluxe model of all Cretors hand-drawn vending wagons.
