Is this truck a 4x4? Axles look a bit like Nash Quad. No idea unfortunately.

I have seen this before but am fuzzy on details. Seems like this truck was made in central midwest, maybe Nebraska or Oklahoma. It was 4wd with a portal type axle. A man named Freeman designed the drivetrain. He later surfaced in Michigan and was behind the Freeman 4wd truck. For the life of men I cannot remember the name of the first truck.

Security is a good answer, although I have labeled this unique truck as a Freeman, who built Security. These photos came with the Security brochure and photos we featured in the WAI back in August. What Am I for Sunday 8/23/2020 (justoldtrucks.com) There was also a newspaper article about these trucks dated 3-16-1923, and although it never mentions Freeman or Security, it is obvious that the four wheel drive differentials are identical. Two of these trucks were built for tending balloons, a compressor truck and winch truck. John Frances had this. Brian Kelly told me about these photos and the Security brochure on ebay and I won the auction, so now I own them.

Thanks John, I looked through that article several times and somehow missed that.
