Prototype History:
White Motor Company ended car production after World War I and began producing trucks. The company soon sold 10 percent of all trucks made in the US. The WC series of trucks went into production in 1949 to replace the earlier WB-series trucks. The WC series was the companies main heavy-hauler until they were in turn replaced by the 3000-series Cab-Over-Engine models.

From Wikipedia

Road Name History:
The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, better known as A&P, was an American and Canadian chain of grocery stores that ceased supermarket operations in November 2015, after 156 years in business. From 1915 through 1975, A&P was the largest food/grocery retailer in the United States (until 1965, the largest U.S. retailer of any kind). A&P was considered an American icon that according to The Wall Street Journal "was as well known as McDonald's or Google is today" and that A&P was "Walmart before Walmart." Known for innovation, A&P and the supermarkets that followed its lead significantly improved nutritional habits by making available a vast assortment of food products at much lower costs. Until 1982, A&P also was a large food manufacturer. In his 1952 book, American Capitalism, John Kenneth Galbraith cited A&P's manufacturing strategy as a classic example of countervailing power that was a welcome alternative to state price controls.

In 1859, the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, known everywhere as A&P, began as a mail-order business located at 31 Vesey Street in downtown Manhattan. In 1936, A&P became the first national supermarket chain in the United States The company experienced financial and filed for Chapter 11 protection in 2010. March 13, 2012 it was announced that A&P had emerged from bankruptcy and was now a private company.
