Could anyone identify the year and model of this truck. Someone had found this truck and is thinking of restoring it for pulling a vintage car. If anyone can identify this truck, please e-mail Hank Suderman or Frank. I believe the model is a Series 734CG, but not completely sure. Frank assumes that the truck is a 1966.
   
Here are a couple of pictures of Wayne's old girl that he bought last summer. She is a 1960 921D and a 1958 16' Powers dump trailer. Wayne Brown Collection. I set this unit up from leftover parts to move cattle on a station in the north western corner of Australia. The station is just over 1.6million acres so this unit is quite useful. The only details that I can give on the truck are 6X6 powered by a 6V53 Detroit with a 9speed roadranger box and Hendrickson rear end. The "road" that it is pictured on is a good example of its working enviornment so the 6X6 comes in handy at times. As you may have noticed by the name of the photo, I find driving this rig an enjoyable change from my mechanics duties. Photo by Paul Beattie.
My name is Chris Garland. I am from Sydney, Australia, and I am 16. I own this 1928 Reo. It could possibly be a Speedwagon but still unsure. My uncle is an old truck fanatic.

My grandfather had a Kraft Cheese route in Chicago and the surrounding cities in the early 30s. He would drive around to individual customers and markets and deliver cheese. I found a picture of him with his delivery truck. His name was Morris Bettelman and I believe his truck was a 1934 Diamond T. Sandy Bettelman Collection.
