This is #2 the second B-61 we got to make a dump. 673, 67 series duplex, 20" (Spring 1973)

Got this truck for the dump body (5x7 yd. Garwood, St.Paul) and tires. Sold the truck to a local man who put a dump on it and moved his small crawler dozer for many years. 1957 GMC 630, full air, good running V8, I think GMC, some had Buick V8's. (Spring 1973)

More Diamond T trucks,

The 1946 Brockway form truck was replaced with a military M35 6x6 the platform body was switched over used that for a few years, ( can't locate pictures). the truck wasn't really heavy enough. The M35 was replaced with a 1966 Diamond T, P4000 in 1968 and was one of the first standup trucks in the area.(1969) The continental 331 was way underpowered. I used this truck to get my Massachusetts Class B license , at 17. The sheet metal , engine and trans are put away, have the frame and frt axle. the 2 speed rear was sold and believe went to export.

We had a Diamond T P 3000 also, pic will be in another section.

This the last acquisition 1963 Diamond T 931F, I have searched a long time for one of these. This came from California .(2012) and working on this project currently.

Could you post some more pictures of the Diamond T 931? One of my model projects is a 921 and I could do with a look at some of the frame details such as spring hangars, cab mounts etc. I'm assuming that the same parts would have been used on both models.

Very nice memories! Still have the trailer hooked to the COE?
