ID these oldies!
« on: January 14, 2013, 09:59:28 AM »
Some of you may recall the earlier post I did on old trucks of the Crowsnest Pass. Here is an update and by going around the back of one yard (a trudge through the snow) I was able to catch glimpses of a few more trucks deep inside that I did not see before. Some were obscured by other junk, but I manged to get a few OK shots - hopefully with enough detail that they can be identified. I am trying to arrange permission to enter the yard this summer.

Experts chime in - can anyone ID these? Larger pics can be posted if needed.

First photo the closest cab (with the three cab lights) is International, or at least an International cab, as many manufacturers used their cab on different trucks.

Second photo is a Diamond T. At first I thought it was a Mack by the shape of the cab, however, the hood-sides, with the chrome trim are a give-away.

Third and final photos are both Diamond T's, late '30s into the '40s...

The other two cabs in the first photo I'll have to think about, very little to go by...

Coloradogreen is correct about the International cab in the first picture but on closer examination I believe it is a Diamond T beause of the chrome strip just below the window and the hood orniment.  Diamond T of that era (50's) used that Internatonal cab on their smaller models.

I guess it makes sense that many of those seen here are Diamond Ts. There are more trucks from this maker in the same yard that were IDed in an earlier post I did (thanks to the experts BTW).

Were Diamond Ts ever that popular in Canada? Outside of this yard, I have never seen a single one in person.

Those 2 cabs on the end in the first photo are definitely not F 100, Ford cabs, the back of the Ford had a distinctive "big window" mould line around (much larger then) the back  window that wrapped around the cab. I am leaning toward Studebaker cabs of 49-53. I'm a bit thrown by the lack of vent windows in the cabs but they may have been removed, I can't think of a cab without them till the Chevy of that vintage but it is clearly not a Chevy either.

It has the look of a Nash pickup too in some ways but those are very rare!

 Diamond T's were seen around in Canada, not an big numbers but they did have a presence.

Diamond T used the International "Comfo-Vision" cab on all of their trucks from 1949 - 1950 until their purchase by White Motor. Then they used the Autocar Driver Cab for all of their heavier trucks and re-badged Reos for their smaller units.

I belive JJG is correct, those other two are early Studebakers.  Looks like some nice old restorable iron in that lot.
