This REO blower truck was back in the For Sale section. It is not a Coleman, but I did not look at it close enough to see whose conversion it was..http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/8ce2f71e-b116-47e5-bb27-c331.jpg


Here is the info on the 1967 Reo. It had a Rockwell transfer case and probably a Rockwell driveline as well.

Thanks!  Yes, I have seen Dick's Coleman D-40XX many times, and even went up to New Hampshire to see his collection. His restoration is one of only a very few that approaches "as built."

Craig, Dick Halberg's 1929 Coleman at Macungie was the only one at either national show. I did not see any Coleman conversions at either show.

The yellow 1929 Coleman of Dick H. was at Macungie.

Always think for yourself. Don't trust the government.

Terrible ideas sometimes make the best memories.

|||  Colemans at Harrisonburg or Macungie?  |||

For the first time in many, many years I missed both the ATHS show and the ATCA show, I just wasn't feeling up to traveling this time around.

Did anyone notice any Coleman trucks or Coleman conversions at either show, or any other recent truck shows?

Thanks.

Steve we're pretty good at hijacking threads. I spent the winter of 73/74 on a riding scaffold replacing all the screws holding the corrugated sheeting on the side of a foundry shaker building in Ypsilanti Michigan called Motor Wheel. But we had a grand view 6 stories up. I think they were owned by Goodyear. Then we rebuilt all the carts and the drag and cope molds that travelled thru and used in the pouring process. And yes you came out at the end of the day looking like you'd been playing in a coal bin. They made GM brake drums and front wheel assemblies for Chrysler.

One day we watched a guy get blown right out the back window of a big fork lift when he dumped hot slag on a snow pile. Lit on his feet and never stopped running! I think he set a new worlds record in the 100 yard dash.

This is unrelated to the thread subject, but late in 1972, I worked at a foundry here in Wisconsin. My paychecks were from "Waupaca Foundry, a division of Budd Automotive." A high percentage of our product was "Big Three" automotive related. All in all a nasty place to work, so I was only there for a couple of months!

It also reminds me of a street sweeper cab.

1946 Dodge pickup cab had a Budd tag, if I recall in the door frame.

That cab looks like railroad equipment.
