This type of unusual front spring suspension was released on the 1921 Service model 15 also called Red Pyramid.

Sorry, I push the wrong key.

The WAI truck is a 1919 Three Point truck, manufactured by the Three Point Truck Corp. (Subsidiary of New York Air Brake Corporation), Watertown (New York) / Oxford (North Carolina).

In 1919, the company build and marketed a "Three-Point Truck;" an "enormous affair, the four wheels alone weighing nearly one ton. The machine had a 15-foot wheel base, and an overall length of 19 feet. It weighed about 8,100 pounds and had a carrying capacity of from three to six tons..." It was not a success.

Give it to Dan Souday on his second try. This truck is a Three Point, one of 30 manufactured in from 1917 to 1924 by the New York Air Brake Company. While these trucks were not sucessful, there is one survivor with an interesting history. This Three Point truck was taken out of service shortly before WW2 and the 4 cylinder Buda engine sold to an employee of the company that owned it. During the War the company went into production of heavy munitions, and a heavy truck was needed to transport them around the factory. A six cylinder Continental engine was fitted to the Three Point and the truck began a new life. This truck has been restored to operational condition and can be seen at the Northern New York Agricultural and Historical Museum. Thanks to George Murphey and Brian Kelly for these Three Point photos.

What a small world, the father of one of my college friends worked fo Air Brake in Watertown.

I never knew the truck existed. Will have to make a trip up there after Cortland in the near future.

Jeff, this truck looks to have a very heavy worm drive axle, I've never seen one like that before. Do you know what type of drive axle it is? Timken (TDA-Timken Detroit Axle Co.) seemed to be the most popular American brand, I've also seen reference to Sheldon worm axles. Do you know of other American firms that produced worm drive axles?

The color photos used here were taken by me this past August in Stone Mills, NY. My wife and I just happened by this place and there sat this truck. I could not find anybody there to give me any info, so what you see posted in this WAI is what I came across after a months worth of research. Of only 30 trucks built, this is the only survivor. The old girl, sorry to say, is in need of another restoration. What I did find out, that back in the day this truck made several trips between Watertown, NY and NYC. Now that must have been some trip.


For more about this very rare truck, read my post on --HANK'S TRUCK FORUM -- 1919 Three Point Truck

On a personal note to the winner --- I think you've learned my secret -- it's safe with me:D:D


Congrats, I REALLY thought no one would get this!!

Trucks, give me trucks!!! --- I'M LIKING TRUCKSWhen we see what we want to see, and hear what we want to hear---- all too often we miss the point!


I'm where I'm at when I'm all there! But,when I'm here, how can I be all there?

It was built in-house.
