USPS Grumman LLV

You see them every day, but do you know what they are?  Yes, they’re mail trucks, and they’re made by Grumman.The Grumman LLV to be exact. LLV stands for Long Life Vehicle, and the plan was for them to have a life-span of at least 24 years. Grumman built over 99,000 of them from 1986-1994. You can read more about the LLV here. It even has its own Facebook page.
