    With much help from fxfymn, I brought home my latest addition to the growing fleet, a 1918 World War 1 class B Liberty truck. Wood spoke, solid rubber tires, 4 cylinder, 424 cubic inch, 52 horsepower with a top speed of a blistering 14 mph. Hope to get started on the restoration soon. Plan to bring it to the ATHS show in York, Pa next May, finished or not. It joins my 1918 AC Mack Army truck, and the 1917/18 Mack built searchlight/antiaircraft trailer. Last picture is the gun trailer. Steelman

    Hi there to everyone! I found this relic about ten years ago outside Shamokin, PA. It was parked in a field along with some friendly horses who allowed me to get some pics. The owner of this beast wasn't home at the time and I haven't been back through the area since. I'm sure hoping someone can help me identify it - it's a mystery that's been bothering me for a decade. The red and blue stripes visible underneath the windshields made me think of a rolling Post Office, utilized in the '40s and '50s.. It had a DD8V71 factory mounted straight in beneath the rear portion of the frame, similar to a GMC PD4501 Scenicruiser. The insulated rear main and vent doors puzzled me. No need to freeze mail. Did it haul produce? It had a 1983 Georgia inspection sticker on the driver's windshield. Both fronts appear to be steer axles, only one of the rears was powered with the other being a tag. There's the outline of a diamond shaped emblem on the front of the vehicle. Any guesses or information would be appreciated!

    Is this the same truck? I was on a jobsite in Biglerville last month and one of the mechanics used it to deliver a load of precast. He told me it was an extra tractor and not many of the drivers liked to take her out. He told me she ran great and he would use her when he had to deliver a load in a pinch for his company.

    What year and engine is in the truck? MP engines also have injector cup issues. Have also seen some E-tech and ASET injector cup issues which is rare compared to the MP.

I got lucky on that one that we were home and caught it right away had a small thunder storm roll through this morning only heard a couple slaps of thunder, but the way the winds blowing if it hit close to anything combustible we'll know shortly.

    More we look at the truck the more we have come to the conclusion it is based on a mid 50's Fruehauf or Trailer Mobile unit look at the general details of the units. I lean towards Freuhauf because of last photo of the Fruehauf Sport Cruiser 1956 Fruehauf 1962 Trailer Mobile Museum de Transport, Caracas, Venezuela. Describes this as a 1959 Road King Nestle coffee transporter Fruehauf Sport Cruiser

    Possibly a McCullogh Road King. There was a discussion about this one on the ATHS forum some time back. Fageol/Twin Coach made trucks like that, some of them were made out of Fruehauf semi trailers, but it does not appear to be a Fageol. The highway post offices I have seen had some windows in the sides, and it looks like it has a higher weight capacity than would be needed for that. Very little information exists on the Road King - and it might not be one, but it would be good if you (or someone else in that area) could get back and see if it is still there and possibly dig up some info .

    I FINALLY found a company to transport the trailer from PHX, AZ to ALTOONA, PA for $2000. A friend is VP Maintenance at Old Dominion Freight Lines. They run pups and have terminals in PHX and ALT. As soon as I can get the details worked out and a check in the mail the trailer will be headed east. I was able to negotiate a slightly better price since these have been for sale since last fall. I probably paid too much (being the cheap SOB that I am).
