Rust Heinz, the ketchup king, designed not only the 1938 Phantom Corsair (a weird car in its own right) but this delivery truck, called the Comet. As Daniel Strohl has pointed out, the 1938 Comet was built on an Autocar chassis, and if Rust Heinz hadnít died in a car crash in 1939 at age 25, the company would probably have commissioned a fleet of these vehicles.
