Welcome to the Hays Antique Truck Museum site. The site is back up from our host transition and should be faster and more stable now. It was given a face lift with a new design. Thanks very much for your patience.


The Hays Antique Truck Collection

The Hays collection includes over 100 different makes of old trucks, representing 94 different manufacturers such as Fageol, Freightliner, Mack, Sterling, Oshkosh, Peterbilt, Chevrolet, Dodge, and the one and only 1916 Breeding Steam Truck. Also on display are trailers, industrial powerplants, tools, equipment, and trucking memorabilia. Most of the trucks have been beautifully restored and many are in running condition.

Trucks from the Hays collection have been on display in a variety of settings. Visitors to the annual International Truck Show can see several trucks from the Hays collection on display. The Hays collection was featured on the television show, Bay Area Backroads and the recurring TNN series, The World of Collector Cars.

Hays trucks have also appeared in several feature length motion pictures. Both the 1921 Relay truck and the 1942 MACK fire truck appeared in the movie James and the Giant Peach. Three of our trucks were on location for several months at Alcatraz Island for the movie, Murder in the First, starring Kevin Bacon. Monsters, a Universal Studios picture, also used 6 trucks from the collection.


Our trucks are available for lease for use in movie and television productions, advertisements, conferences, and special events. Please call (530)666-1044 or use our Guestbook for more information on leasing trucks from the Collection.
