Unfortunately neither of these is the bookI’m trying to remember. It was more fleshed out book than Scarry’s and not really about city trucks as the Quqckenbush…more of a boy in his bed hearing and seeing the sights and sounds on his own street. But thank you both for trying!
One answer: Could it be City Trucks by Robert Quackenbush?
Other answer: A Richard Scarry truck book? They date back that far and several are still in print.

It was about trucks - specifically trucks that a child would see and hear in their own neighborhood. Like the sounds of trash trucks when they were still in bed in the morning or those they might hear during the night...like fire emergency vehicles overnight, or a truck making a delivery to the local bakery early in the morning, or cement trucks during the day. Can’t recall all of the trucks or the details but remember the sense that these were the tucks of a child’s neighborhood.

I remember when we got to the page about the truck delivering to the bakery and it was supposed to be full of bread he would break into the biggest smile and say “mmmmm” thinking of what that smell must be. He’s going to have his first child soon and I would love to find this book again.
