■ 1951 American Coleman "G-55" 136-inch wheelbase diesel semi-tractor built for export to Brazil. All Coleman trucks and aircraft towing tractors built for export at the time included 3 horizontal bars across the radiator.

– The G-55 was ordinarily powered with a BUDA LO-525, but when offered with the Cummins diesel option, they were later re-designated the "D-55" to avoid confusion.

– This particular unit was featured in a 14 Dec 1951 article in the Littleton Independent:

= = =
14 Dec 1951 – LAST TRUCK TILL EMERGENCIES OVER: "This is the last Coleman four-wheel-drive truck which will be made in Littleton until the defense emergency [Korean War] is over, Don Higgins of the local factory said Monday. Several new features were incorporated in the truck, such as a different cab, grille, and hood. When peacetime production is resumed, the new Colemans will look something like this. The truck, now on its way to Brazil for use in heavy off-the-road work with a semi-trailer, was driven by Gene Swank to Mount Vernon, Illinois where it picked up its trailer and headed for the docks at New Orleans. The unit is powered by a Cummins Diesel engine. In the picture is Gene's father, Russell Swank, shop superintendent. Source: Littleton Independent, 14 Dec 1951
= = =

– Regardless of the wording in the newspaper article, G-55 production soon resumed in 1952.

-- Interestingly, this unit appears to mark the introduction of IH cabs on G-55 trucks. Throughout the late 1940s until 1950, Coleman had used Coleman-fabricated aluminum cabs hung with 1942-1947 Ford doors. The massive double-cab CF-55-AF used double GM cabs starting with the 1951 contract, 3rd in a series of 4 contracts.
