A Legacy Like No Other
1946 – Jimmy Olson, Commissioner of the New York State Liquor Authority, and Walter Heingartner, owner of Kinney Motors Chevrolet in Brooklyn, N.Y., incorporated J.B.E. Olson Corporation in New York to sell aluminum-body trucks to the laundry industry.
The truck, called the “Kargo King,” is built for Olson by Grumman Aircraft Engineering, which produced fighter planes during World War II, with the chassis produced by Chevrolet. All the Chevy dealers on the East Coast are invited to the introduction of the Kargo King at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
Salespeople write 450 orders for the truck that day. Morgan Olson’s Step Van legacy continues to this day!
