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.
