Here are some pictures from the founder of Jolly Rancher Candies, of the trucks they used in the 70s and 80s. They were A model KWs with old west muraled trailers. They had several dozen and legend has it they were the inspiration for the trailer in Smokey and the Bandit.

Two views of the same trailer taken at the now closed Jolly Rancher plant in November 2002. One more taken in Boulder,CO. in August 2003.
These three pictures are courtesy of the Harmsen family (founders of Jolly Rancher). The Kenworth Aerodyne was used to transport the stagecoach.
Here is another photo of a Jolly Rancher trailer. Spotted this in August 2003 in Lafayette, Colorado. It now belongs to a construction firm. We now know the whereabouts of six of these trailers, out of about two dozen. The other side of this one is a landscape scene but there are windows cut into it.
Found these two Jolly Rancher trailers at Wheat Ridge, Colorado December 2004
