What make are the UPS trucks?
After several fruitless searches through the official UPS site, I stumbled upon a chat room at Automotive Helper that suggested UPS trucks are built by an automotive manufacturing firm called Grumman Olson. An unofficial corporate history of Grumman seemed to back this up:
"1966 - Grumman teams up with UPS to develop the now familiar UPS P-600 and P-800 truck bodies, featuring lift-up fiberglass hoods and translucent fiberglass roofs." We found supporting evidence at the truck photography collection of James Cox. Note that Grumman Olson only provides the truck bodies; the components likely come from a variety of places.
In other exciting UPS news, the brown trucks will be making their video game debut in "NASCAR 06: Total Team Control." That's right, you'll be able to steer Big Brown around the racetrack.
