I imagine a lot of these trucks were used in the First World War, along side of the Model T ambulances.
is one of those mine???. charley
I got room for two.
i guess not mine has iron wheels, it was built in 1917 by the Micheal motor car co, charley
Got to ride on one of these once. There used to be an all truck nationals show behind the post office in Barrington, NH. I can't imagine putting a days work on one of these things. Once around the field and I think my kidneys bled
Dumb question: are these trucks complete and awaiting shipment with bodies to come later (like the early TT's), or is this a photo of an assembly room? I'm guessing they're complete due to the lack of parts and workroom around each unit, but.....
And then I read the title. It's a "Shipping" room. Dang, sometimes old age is a punishment.
FWD got government contracts for so many trucks that they could not keep up, they sub-contracted truck production from several suppliers. Engines came from Wisconsin Engine Co. and they too could not fill the demand and sub-contracted their engines from Falls and others. Thus there were FWD trucks with Wisconsin engines but the trucks and engines had never been in Wisconsin!
I can see four workers......N
One cab with a roof in the back row, deluxe model!! Not for the Army.
They look similar to the Nash Quads from the mid teens. Thanks for sharing.
