"Drop Belly" Wagon. Museum Catalog Number YELL 106379. Also referred to as a "Box Dropping" type utility wagon, the historic vehicle collection includes two vehicles of this style which incorporate a mechanism under the driver's seat for raising and dropping the two-piece hinged bottom of the box. The carriages of these wagons are extremely heavy with 4.5-inch wide iron wheels. Both wagons have remnants of green paint on the wooden bodies. One of the vehicles has a hand-made aluminum plate that reads "N.P.S. 43 68877". This type of vehicle was used for road construction and has also been documented in the photograph archives performing campground custodial duties.
