I think they made a tractor-dump trailer unit in the mid or late 1920's like a Euclid? I've seen pictures of such a unit both on the bridge replacement rt 8 Noblesboro, NY c. 1927 and c. 1930 in Palatine/Danube NY along the barge canal. Tom Siemons (Sterling owner) had sent me a photo of a Quickway? shovel on a Coleman at an old mine down in PA about 20 years ago, hope someone saved that one.

Did anyone ask Don Chew how he found that Coleman in the nudist colony? Howe Bros. in Troy, NY built the Coleman units out here, popular on Chevy and GMC in the early 1950's when Walter and Oshkosh started getting expensive and towns realized they were expensive to use as regular dumptrucks. I always regarded Don Chew as the 4WD expert, hope he is still doing well.

Interesting info!

I suppose if someone wanted a Coleman badly enough they could have put it on a railcar.

Driving would have been a sloooow trip!

Don Chew restored an early 20's Coleman 4WD truck for the Coleman family. IIRC it was found in a nudist colony in the hills above Boulder Colo. It was the feature truck at the ATHS National Convention in Denver in about 1991.

Chopped Liver, I've got my own rope thank you very much.

Jim I talk to the owner at that show trying to figure out how they could get that truck all the way from Littleton CO. Now I see they were made in washington DC also.

This is a 1929 Coleman all wheel drive dump truck powered by a 128 hp Buda engine shown in South Deerfield, MA in 2011.
