Once again, you guys are good. I'm not sure how Warren pulled Atterbury out of this, but he is right ! This is a 1921 short wheelbase Atterbury Model 20R built for contractor service with side by side dumping bodies. Total capacity of the two dump bodies is one cubic yard. Atterbury trucks were built from 1910 to 1935 in Buffalo New York. Thanks to Dan Souday for the WAI pics and the 1918 ad. The color photo is also a 1921 model.

Well....it has the right radiator shape, hood shape, fenders and perhaps most importantly the formed top of the cowl or firewall. Can't think of anyone else who formed the top back like Atterbury did. Also, the sides of the dash have a distinctive shape and end in the correct spot. I'm thinking that it says "Atterbury" on each side of the floorboard, but I can't really tell.

I had no idea that Atterbury made a contractor's dump (I call them a "roadbuilder") until I saw this picture. Seems everyone made one.
That includes Sterling by the way. Their version was built in 1929 and shared a serial number series with the DW14 model (23306 and up). Later in 1929 Sterling changed their serial number series so that the model 2 digit number appeared first (like 14 for DW14 except that the DW14 was apparently discontinued or at least replaced by a DW15 at this time) then came a letter which indicated the drive (as in W for worm, C for chain, B for bevel and D for double reduction.) The Roadbuilder series continued as 15RB601 and up, which made this series unique in that it used two letters instead of one. By 1931 the FCS210 had two letters in the serial number - 210CS601 etc., but the other trucks used just one letter. Even the EWS36 and EWS40 used one letter in 1930 - which was 23W601 up and 27W601 up since they were tandem axle versions of the EW23 and EW27. So the Roadbuilder was pretty unique. Never seen a photo of one that I am aware of.

Enough blathering!

That restored Atterbury sure is nice!

There's never enough blathering. The attached article/ad is from the 1927 Road Builders Catalog-Directory.

John and Bill - Great stuff! Many thanks for the posts.
Wonderful Sterling stuff - I can never get enough of that.
So - is that DW18 a Roadbuilder? Maybe. I think gravity dump when I think "Roadbuilder".
