    Once upon a time milk was delivered door to door!
Divco trucks were the king of the home delivery market because they were easy to get in and out of as the driver ran the bottles to the door in the wee hours of the morning. These were used in parades and other publicity stunts by daries and some other companies to attract attention. the Divco trucks were made by Amroc the same company that took over the manufacturing of the Desoto Firemite bodies when the original vacuum formed plastic bodies failed miserably during delivery. Amroc was able to make fiberglass bodies for Robel who finished making the mini Desoto. Amroc made other mini cars that had stylized sports car bodies also but you will have to go to THIS SITE for information on the Desoto with the fiberglass bodies the divo trucks and OFFYETTE RACER, OFFYETTE SPORTSTER and the Junior Sports Car Body

If anybody has any additional information or images of Divco Juniors I would love to share them with everyone on this site.

I have been able to gather a heck of a lot more images of Divcos since the last update. So many that I am going to add a misc images page instead of stacking them on the sides of the page. Actually I think I will try to keep most of the vintage images on the main page and have the Misc images page for the current photographs.

Go to the Divco misc. images page

I have also been made aware that the original factory molds from Robel are still in exsistance on Long Island in the hands of a junior collector. And he is willing to make reproduction bodies. You can contact him through his website that can be located at the link below.

Use of images and information on this website for Magazine articles/car club newsletters

If you want to use information or images from this website for magazine articles please contact me so that I can help by providing more information addition images or Higher resolution images. So little is known about these little cars that education of the collecting public can only help find more of them and find more parts or parts sources for them. Generally I only ask for of a copy of the final issue and mention of the website in the article in return. Even though promotional cars have been around for a long time they have only recently become very collectable. Any article written about them can only help to find “Automotive archeologists” With information on these rare and unusual mini cars
