The red truck – “Tintin in America” (1945). Not far from Chicago, gangsters set up a roadblock and ambush a truck that they believe carries a cargo of whiskey hidden in gasoline drums. Unfortunately for them, on board this beautiful red truck are hiding Tintin and the police. Hands up! … this is a clever set up (see page 15). This red truck bears strong resemblances to one of those which Hergé held in his archives. It is a semi-light truck manufactured in 1930 by the American company International. Hergé designed his model while preserving the characteristics of the American truck.
