Apple Truck sculpture. 1920 Selden Apple Truck

Franklin County Career & Technology Center in Chambersburg, PA created this 1921 Selden Apple Truck for Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway. It is 10.5-ft. high, weighing nearly 1 1/2 tons.

Roadside fruit stands were bountiful in the early Lincoln Highway days, and Franklin County still has a strong connection to agriculture. While it was easy to choose a vintage apple truck to replicate, it is the most complex of all of the roadside giant designs. Shatzer's Fruit Market on Route 30 in Chambersburg graciously allowed the Giant to be installed on their property.
