On my wife's fathers farm, they had a 1917 Stegmann (sp) truck. Anyone ever heard of it?

Thanks

Hmm, I looked in my copy of the "Standard Catalog of American Cars 1805-1942 Second Edition" and didn't see that manufacturer listed. I also looked for Stigmann and Stagmann and nothing came close. Can you provide a picture or more details?

It was a flat bed, used for truck farming from Burlington mass to the Fanueil Hall market in the 20s. I don't have a photo

I may be wrong but I think Van Horns truck museum in Clear Lake Iowa may have one. I'll have to loon thru some pis to fine it.

Van Horn closed the museum and auctioned off the trucks several years ago.

Jim,
My wife's grandfather, Oscar Stegeman built trucks around that time in Milwaukee. We have a few poor quality copies of photos showing his building and some trucks. They were flatbeds with an open cab, with canvas roof, in the style of a Roadster top. . We know he sold several to breweries in the area.

Feel free to contact me.

The Standard Catalog of American Cars 1805-1942 is not a good resource for researching trucks.

The reason? It is an encyclopedia of automobiles, not trucks.

It's a Saure, not Stegeman.

Type "Stegeman truck" into Google, some period ads and pictures do come up. :-)
