Diamond T for Me

A few months back when I went on a road trip looking for snow plows. As you can see below I found more than just plows. Check out this late 50’s Diamond-T dump truck that was the first ten wheel dump truck ever owned by Barney and Dickenson. For a truck that has been sitting in the weeds for God only knows how long it looks great. I’m thinking with a little work it could be back on the road. What an awesome truck. You just don’t see anything like this anymore.

And here is a rig we’ve seen before. You can see the evolution of the Diamond-T design after it was folded in with Reo when the brands flew under the White Motor Company flag. I would say these trucks are separated by about twenty years.

Despite their age they are still with us! Legendary toughness right there.
