I know that I am no oil painting but that is butt ugly in a cute sort of way. An un usual body that sits close to the ground. Is this a low loader? Also rare with the radiator behind the cab, must be suitable to Artic conditions. I do like it very much.

I like the highway tyres on the steer with an aggressive pattern on the rear, on a front wheel drive. :dry:

Had I seen that model, before viewing this thread, I'd have assumed it was aa unauthentic design by someone with no engineering comprehension.

I understand they were pretty successful very specialist trucks. There is a big winch built in just under the rear radiator. They used what was available eg the GMC cab, in the early days but then went on to building on new chassis.

Looking at their vehicles they produced some very interesting units. They were keen on Diamond T modifications and did many special body applications.

I have only just discovered this thread. I have no idea why I could not see it earlier. A very unusual and interesting truck.
V8Ian The aggressive tread tyres appear to be only on one side of the truck. I suspect that somebody fitted what they had, to take it to shows otherwise we would not know of it.
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!
