Description
 
The Divco (short Detroit Industrial Vehicle Company), was once a part of America's daily morning landscape when locally owned dairies delivered a wide variety of dairy products door to door by the friendly milkman driving a Divco. Although used by many other home delivery companies such as bakeries and diaper services, it was its widespread use by dairies small and large that made it the most popular multi-stop dairy delivery truck in the country.

Eventually consolidation of the dairy industry combined with the rapid growth of larger grocery stores end home delivery. However, the Divco remains a widely recognizable symbol of a simpler time when the milkman was an important, trusted part of the community who entered homes, filled customer's orders and collected the payment left for him in the kitchen.

American Heritage Models recalls these iconic symbols of an earlier America with our Great American Dairies series. Through extensive research we're creating models of authentic Divcos as they would have appeared on their home delivery route decades ago.
