Here is a very unique find on the streets of East Syracuse, a 50’s something Duplex. The history of Duplex Trucks is a tad murky. All Duplex trucks were custom built and used a variety of cabs manufactured by other manufacturers. This example contains the International Harvester Comfo-Cab while others sported cabs by Oshkosh. Clearly, a monster engine is hiding under that incredibly long hood. It’s quite possible this truck was purchased at a FWD drive dealership less than 1/2 a mile down the road from it’s current position. Still running, this truck occasionally shows up at classic car and truck shows through out the area.
