John's "Old TRUCKS",Fire Engines,
Motor Homes and Bus Pictures
from 1910 to 1979

 
 

 
Truck are almost as old as the automobile. Once man discovered the automobile he found that it could also be used to move material from one place to another.
The first known truck was built in 1896 by the German automotive pioneer Gottlieb Daimler. 
It didn't take long before American manufactures were converting their cars into trucks. The Model T being one 
of the most famous with it's Model TT. Other manufactures of the automobile also discovered this market. 
There were also a number of independent truck manufactures both large and small.
On this web page I tried to show as many of these as possible.

 
I would like to invite any one that has a favorite Truck of this period to E mail me a copy.

Before we begin with the old motor homes and trucks I want to show you an old truck
that played a large roll in the outcome of WW II.
And since I am a Canadian I take great pride in Canada's war effort


This is the 500,000th military vehicle It was manufactured by
General Motors of Canada at it's Oshawa Ontario plant. It was a Chevrolet CMP (Canadian Military Pattern truck)
King George said Canada Provided it's Navy, it's Men and 500,000
Trucks without them we would have lost the War
Here is R S McLaughlin doing the Lug nuts on this truck built only in Canada for the WW2 allies but the German Army loved to capture 
them because of their traction in anything.

 

Old Motor Homes and Travel Trailors
Through my travels I have come across a number of
old motor home and thought I would share them with you.
The years of the units shown are as close as I could get



 
 

This section of John's Old TRUCKS and Motor Home Pictures
includes some really different Motor Homes and campers but
this one is just about as different as you can get.
It's a 1940 COE, Fifth Wheel Camper.

The Salo Volunteer Fire Department is trying to get
all the information on this fire engine.
All they know so far is:
The truck came to Finland in 1920-1926 as 
passenger car, Apparently it was transporting 
alcohol during prohibition in 1932-35. The driver got 
caught in transit and the car was confiscated to the
state. The car was auctioned in the local town of 
Salo where the local chief of police decided to sell 
the car to the fire department, without any other 
bidders. Actual model and year is 1926 Hudson 
Super Six. The car was converted to a fire engine in
1937 or 1938. 
Anyone involved in this work are no longer living
and no other information is available.

They have  a number of pictures like this one 
showing engine and chassis details. By clicking
on the picture to the left you will be able to view 
a page showing some of those pictures.
They are looking for anyone that can work on a 
engine like this especially the carburetor and
they also looking for any information anyone my
have on this fire engine.
If anyone can help please Email me Email

Available Truck Company Chicago
 
Greg Hayden submitted the following story and pictures of an Available Truck.
Production for this truck was started in 1912 in Chicago and supplied the local market with trucks.
The company was started by John Rath and  established the same site as that occupied by the plant of the John Rath Cooperage Company. Production reached 150 trucks per year.
The truck described below was a 1932 and sold in Chicago to a moving company.
Now Greg's words on this truck.
"I saw this truck at a local museum in 2006 and took a bunch of digital pictures. Stuck in the bottom of the windshield
was this picture: ABdone-1024.jpg. So I looked in the phone book and found one Ed Fontane listed so I called. No answer. Off and on for weeks I called this number different times of the day and evening with the
phone never picked up.
But then one evening he did pick up and Ed and I had a nice phone conversation. Ed is the guy who found this derelict truck and restored it to its former glory.
The reason he was not answering his phone was he had just come home after 90 days in the hospital. Ed said he very nearly lost his legs and had a triple heart bypass, among other things.
Anyway, Ed said the new in 1932 Available truck was sold in Chicago to a moving company. At some unspecified point the owner got in trouble with some Chicago bent nose boys, and, in the middle of the night packed up his family in that truck and snuck outta Chicago. He went as far away as he could, Chula Vista, CA; where he opened Chula Vista Transfer.
Continuing his night work said owner made many trips across the Mexican Border, carrying stuff both ways. There came an unspecified time when said owner got in trouble with a US Government agency, and, in fleeing them, abandoned the truck in a Valley Center, CA field. Where it sat for ten years. Where Ed Fontane found it.
Ed told me that the son of that ex-Chicago mover lives here in Vista, but he cannot recall his name or number. 
The longer we spoke the more animated Ed became. He started firing off things. Like Jack Blackburn of Carlsbad Cabinet did the cab @ a cost of $5,000. That a company that advertised in the hot rod magazines - www.egge.com - rebuilt the engine, $3,500. That Doug, the owner of Dragmaster in Carlsbad, rebuilt the aluminum radiator for $1,800. That National City Brakes, did the brakes, and the master cylinder alone cost $190. 
That the carb was just one solid mass of metal, more sculpture than carb, but he sent it to an Arizona company, that completely rebuilt it for $150.00. Take rebuilt carb out of box, put on truck, start engine. That easy. 
That the brass headlights are gas lamps circa 1918 or 1919 and came off a Brush? Automobile. That the other headlights are circa 1932 off a
Packard car. There was not enough left of the original headlights to use them.
    The truck had sat in that field ten years, was the target of numerous individuals with firearms, and was riddled with bullet holes. Then it rained. When he and some friends went to rescue that truck, they eventually had to leave and go get some baling wire and stuff, since, every time they tugged on something, it came off. They had to tie that whole truck together before they could slide it onto a trailer.
Then Ed recalled that he had video taped the whole restoration. Every shop it was in, he taped folks working on the truck. Ed told me that he gave the whole portfolio to his son, and would have to contact him to get that stuff. Ed also said that his ex-wife has a copy of that video.
Ed promised to see what he can do, and phone me back. Ed speaks with what I perceive to be a New Jersey accent, and peppers his speech with colorful New Joisey expressions.
Armed with this information I put up a post on a site called smokstak.com where a Montana member pointed me at aths.org, where I put up a post and I have these replies:
"Greg I have a book that says they were built from 1910 until 1957, and only built a total of about 2500 trucks. Most were sold to Chicago area customers, and the company was taken over by Crane Carriers Corporation Tulsa Oklahoma.
Shifty Availables were pretty much custom built at the factory in Chicago, Illinois. Extremely rare, they were powered by everything from small Continental gas engines up to Hall-Scott gas engines, and likely even some diesels toward the end of their production years. Several of the "coffee table" truck pictorial books (those by Neils Janssen come to mind) have photos and small historical sketches of the Available Truck.
John McLellan
The only thing I've got that lists Availables in the 28-32 period is a fan belt catalog. It doesn't show anything for 28 or 29 (I would assume because of low production?) but shows 28 different models for 30, 31 and 32, all starting with a "T" , a "W" or an "X"(T10 thru T50, sometimes with letters after number, W200 and 300 and X300) About half have the engine used listed; if more definite info doesn't show up, and it's a 30 to 32 with a model number, Good luck. Clueless
Don't know if this info has been posted before, but that that Available of earlier posts probably has a 6BM    3-5/8 x 4-1/4, 263 ci, 5.7 comp, 86 hp @ 2800, 210 T @ 1000. Interesting that both Waukesha & Hercules engines of that pre-war period have displacement breaks that are almost identical. Park Olson"
I wrote to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, providing the information I have here, who replied that 
they had nothing on Available trucks. But suggested I write to the Chicago Public Library, they provided a name and address, as they had a better Chicago history than they did; but I never heard back from them.
Subsequently I lost all the pictures I took at that museum to a hard drive failure so the attached contact sheets are all I have left.
AB&W-1-1024.jpg that is Ed Fontane right there with a friends "tool truck". The Available restoration base was another of Ed's friends, who owned a now defunct vehicle salvage yard.
AB&W-2-1024.jpg taking aluminum body off. There were too many holes and tears in it to deal with so it was duplicated with new aluminum material reusing original sturdy steel rear and side doors and frames.
ABdone-1024.jpg Done. Ed was an entrepreneur who liked imaginatively starting businesses from scratch and getting them going good then selling them before starting something new. 
Ed said he would come home evenings and move local people for a small percentage that pros wanted. Ed drove and helped move furniture but the folks moving had to round up a bunch of folks to help load and unload-"couple cases of cold beer works wonders".
Ed would only move those who were moving within where he lived, 25,000 population Carlsbad. Then he sold that business including the truck to an established local moving company that used it for advertising and parades. Who subsequently donated it to this museum, when the building they were storing it in needed to be destroyed, to make way for a new freeway exit. 
Avail0-1024.jpg  I took this picture September 24, 2006, when I took the additional pictures on the following contact sheets:"

This 1928 Model AA Ford Dump Truck is owned by Dennis J. Roitt
He had the following to say about his Model AA Ford.

"In 1928 it would have been sold by Ford as a Chassis, and the buyer would procure a body.  This dump body and hoist are by Gar Wood Mfg. Mr Wood invented the hydraulic hoist and made a small fortune producing them back when coal deliveries were the 
norm.  I built this truck from scratch by salvaging three partial trucks, starting back in 1976.  It does haul, and I've hauled over 4,000 pounds of sand several times."

1929 Dodge Brothers Tow Truck
1929 Dodge Brothers Tow Truck
These pictures were submitted by John Murphy
The truck came from New Jersey and now lives in Oregon. It was completly taken down to frame and rebuilt and only 4 bolts were broken doing that. It has a Manley crane in the back and from investigation it was found that it started life as a delivery panel and was reconfigured late 1929 as a depression era tow truck. It has hydrolic brakes and a big 6 like the touring cars had with only the upper cylinder walls water cooled and an updraft carburetor. When it was repainted they tried to copy the patina of the truck when we got it. You will notice that the spokes on the wheels are steel.

Mid 1930s International
1930 International A5 3Ton
This picture was submitted by by Anthony J. Selvaggio,
Pointe Dairy Services, Inc. Troy, MI 
This picture was submitted by John Whalen, Gainesville,
Georgia and shows his Grandfather, Josiah William Appleton jr.
who was a  Master Mechanic and ran the Emerson Shoe 
Company in Brockton Massachusetts.
Here is another neat picture of him with the company truck and display in 1930. You might find it amusing. He's in the Tuxedo.
He worked there his entire life and lived directly , next door , uphill from the company. The photo title should be Emerson
Shoe and is slightly visible thru the crowd . His son 
(my Uncle ) is the shortest boy holding golf clubs. 
The truck was in a parade thru Brockton in 1930 .

Roger Describes his truck.
"My truck is a 1931 Chevy 1 1/2 ton Dually commercial
truck (157" wheel base). I am only preserving it as I 
have no intention of painting it. It has taken 79 years to
get it to look this good. Just a little back ground for you, 
these pictures. 
They where taken the day I found it, the box you see is a 
12 foot grain box as this was a working truck in the prairies. 
It runs and drives beautifully, it features the 194 cubic inch
Chevy six engine  (original to this truck). The engine block
in this truck was cast in 1929 and has overhead valve
technology that ordinary did not come out with until many 
years later. When I went to bring it home all we had to do
was put a new battery in it and fresh gas, it started right up
and I drove it onto the flat deck and brought it home.
I do have some original newspaper advertisements from
1931 for this particular truck.

Roger submitted this latest picture of his truck and had the following to say about it.
"I thought I would send you a current picture that was 
taken 4 years later from when I found it. There have been
many hours put into it since I brought it home but you will
have to look closely to see any of the work.

1934 Ford BB Dump Truck
1934 Ford BB Dump Truck
This truck is owned by Walt Fitzgerald.
Walt had the following to say about his truck.
"Truck is a '34BB dump with a Gar Wood. Hydraulic 
lift and body. Ford used various mechanical dump bodies 
prior to '34 and switched exclusively to the Gar Wood 
hydraulic, in '34. Truck lacks correct '34 radiator and
hood side trim so front end is '33. 
The proper grill is very hard to find. I like the cleaner 
look of the '33 front end but of course it is not correct. 
Engine is a later flathead, stroked 289, dual point crab claw distributor, Holly four barrel which works well in pushing
its weight through its "flat land" rear which was an option
for '34. This combination gets you and the load there
in a hurry. But beware of those mechanical brakes."

This truck is owed by Al, Casco, ME USA 
and is a work in progress.
The pictures were submitted by Susan Casco and she had the following to say about the truck that they call "Ben" "Benny is one of those "thumbs-up" rides. Al and Benny don't go far.
Home Depot is the preferred destination.  Even when the snow 
is up to the running boards, Benny will go.  Benny is now 4-wd.
 It's a '94 Jeep suspension -- tranny and transfer case were changed too.
My favorite feature is the crank-out windshield. 
Yes, Benny is a work in progress.  I would really like a wiper on my side and some tunes would be nice too."

The Brockway
How many of us had heard of the Brockway truck. I know I hadn't until 
Anthony Masone introduced me to it. The Brockway Motor Company was
located in Cortland, New York from 1912 to 1977. It produced custom heavy-duty trucks. it started business as the Brockway Carriage Works in 1875 by William Brockway. The company was purchased by Mack Trucks Inc. in August 1956 and remained a division of Mack until its
closing in June 1977.
Each year at Cortland NY hundreds gather for the Brockway Truck Show
This past August 2010 saw the 11th annual show.
Anthony Masone submitted the following pictures which 
he took at the show. Anthony had his own 1970 Brockway N358T with a six-cylinder Cummins engine and a five speed transmission in the show which had 137 entries.

In the 1930's Henry Ford got involved with the Feds to use diesel engines in his Tri-Motor. The Feds figured bombers. There was a guy named Guiberson who had been experimenting with radial aircraft engines since the 1920's. This is the result.
Apparently the reason they did not use them for aircraft was (1) they SMOKED heavily when called upon to work and (2) within that smoke was black oil that quickly covered the cockpit windows and streamed down both sides shuttering the passengers windows and covering the fuselage with this black gunk. 
If you look on line you will find all kinds of other reasons given, but I am going to go with this one.
But all was not lost. Literally thousands of WW II tanks had one of these engines and literally thousands of Troop Landing Craft had the same engine. The ONLY difference really between them were the letters ahead of the 1020. T for tanks and BuShip for Landing Craft.
