Over 100 antique trucks comprise the museum's collection, with 60 vehicles currently on display spanning every decade from a 1910 Avery Farm Wagon to a 1983 Ford 9000.
A man on a mission
Founded by Bill Moon, the Iowa 80 Trucking museum's collection of antique trucks and trucking memorabilia have been lovingly restored and preserved in order to provide the public and trucking enthusiasts a rare glimpse into the history of trucking and the impact the industry has on our everyday lives.
Support the cause
The museum is passionate about preserving trucking history, but relies on the support of fellow enthusiasts for the funding of exhibits and restoration projects. Help Iowa 80 continue to grow and share the positive history of trucking with the public. Make a donation on your visit, become a member, or take part in the museum's annual August golf tournament. (This year a local man got a hole-in-one and won a car!!)
