Muffler Man in Las Vegas, late 1960s.

Muffler Men - The Vegas Years

I recently came across two photos of Muffler Men in Las Vegas, from the mid- to late-1960s, while doing research for my FB page "Nevada Armored Transport." Both Muffler Men were on the Las Vegas Strip at Phillips 66 service stations; one was just north of the Stardust Hotel and Casino, and the other was just south of the Aladdin Hotel and Casino. Both service stations no longer exist.

It's possible this was a single mobile Muffler Man, carted around and parked temporarily in front of gas stations for grand openings or special promotions. The Vegas gas stations are long gone; this Muffler Man might be the same one in Prescott, Arizona since the early 1970s.
