Yup Tiz A:
Sterling Truck






The company was founded in 1907 by William Sternberg as the Sternberg Motor Truck Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Early models offered were
of cab-over design, in 1-, 1.5- 3.5- and 5-ton capacities. Sternberg changed the company name to Sterling at the onset of World War I. Sterling built many
different heavy-duty trucks for commercial, construction and military customers in the ensuing years.
The company was bought by White Motor Company on June 1, 1951

Was there some Volvo involvement? :huh:
Or was it WhiteGMC? :dry:
Or even Western Star? :unsure:

Should I have included Crackerbox, Short Cab, or perhaps Pontiac!!?? (Apparently it was built at the Pontiac Assembly Center - GMC Truck & Coach Division Plant 6). - God Bless Google :silly:

Beyond this I'm stumped, unless it was manufactured in Chile or some other place under some different nomenclature. :pinch: :blush:

Thirsty I is - but never been overly partial to cigars . . .

Werk is right, it's a Chevy Titan, direct copy of the GMC Astro. They were both rolling greenhouses, on a sunny day the A/C couldn't keep up when it was brand new. Guys used to tape off the lower third of the windshield and paint it flat white so as to have a little privacy when scratching sensitive areas.

Almost commented on the demented camera artiste myself Skipjack, and as I said in my initial post, just to keep Swishy happy - Chevy Titan :whistle:

BUT the jury is still out making a decision I think??? :unsure:

Dunno what make it is but I think it is the very first"Long Tom" with part of the tray running forward beside the cab to allow for carrying very long loads. Looks like the hugely long loads might be as long as 10 feet! (three metres). Wow!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
