Hey there...I am the Picture Vehicle Captain for a movie being filmed in Toronto, Canada from August 30 till November and need to find a 1950's or 60's street sweeper to rent for approx 3 or 4 days .
The film is set in 1962 Baltimore and we have archive photos of an old Wayne 3 wheeled sweeper operated by the city of Baltimore that we would like to find a match for .... It doesn't have to be a Wayne but should be similar....I actually have found an older ( 70's ) Mobil sweeper
but the art department do not like it....so hoping someone here will be able to help out...we can arrange transport and insurance etc....thanks

There are a lot of old pelicans around that somewhat look like a wayne 3 wheel sweeper. If it don't need to sweep great I am sure you could outright buy 1 for under $5000. I see them all the time in sweeper sales mag.

try....

Get ahold of ABC Sweeping Co, in Modesto, CA. They have a few "round cab" mobils from the 1960s that, w/the right amount of legal releases, transport, etc... may work a deal with you. The round-cabs kept the same look from the early '60s, to the late '60s. Not the same brand as the one in your archived photo, but a cool looking nostalgic piece of the period nonetheless 8)
