I had a chance to buy a truck like that back in the sixties for $2000. The seller said I could make money with it. I passed.
That is super cool! Even has the little Creators steam engine. Are there any of these still in existence? I would buy one for $2000 Ha ha
There are a number of finely restored Creators trucks out there. This "Used" version has a special charm to it the way it is.
There was a partly restored one up in Scottsbluff Nebr many years ago with a Smith Form-A-Truck rear axle conversion. It was mostly very nicely done but didn't run according to the owner at that time. It sold and where it went is unknown.
Here's one for a mere $99,xxx from Volo!
I know where there is one in a warehouse here in the twin cities. It was used to give away popcorn in their showroom. If I recall it has a 1925 engine. Would love to convince the DW to let me bring it home.
The one in the top photo is not a Cretors. It is a Dunbar.
There was one for sale in Brownwood Texas. Had been owned by Pete Cobb of Dallas who used to take it to the State Fair of Texas. Not sure if it is still available.
That looks like the one from Scottsbluff,when I saw it,it was red with white wheels and tires and brass era. Pretty gorgeous machine.
Not a T, but this Model A has been on local Craigslist for awhile...
