Corbitt trucks played a vital role in transportation around the world, all after being assembled right here in Henderson, NC. This role was especially evident during WWII.
Now, Corbitt and The Corbitt Preservation Association will participate in the NC Transportation Museum’s Salute the Troops activities on July 1 and July 2. (Be sure to click the two links in this sentence.)
Kenneth Stegall, archivist and treasurer with Corbitt Preservation, wrote in an email to members, “This material will become part of a permanent exhibit in the space the Museum is going to provide us to display Corbitt material and a few vehicles. This is a great way for all the folks in NC to see the role Corbitt played in the transportation world.”
The photo here is an example of one of the pictures to be used at the exhibit and is displayed in this story courtesy of The Corbitt Preservation Association. Stegall said the photos will be 20 x 30 and matted and will look really nice.
Local, Vance County owned Corbitts will be in Spencer, NC this weekend too as part of the exhibit, including immaculate restorations of Corbitt Military Trucks.
Everything costs money, including the ongoing cost of permanently having Corbitts and Corbitt materials in the NC Transportation Museum. If you would like to make a contribution, all donations can be mailed to:
