No different bunch Brocky.
That most likely went to collector in Ca, somewhere around the bay area.

Craig
Is that the Spooner Family of Amarillo Texas??  If so, Try contacting Bub Warren, shop 806-374-3056, also of Amarillo, he might be able to get an answer for you??

Maybe Bob Spooner could tell you where he took it.

Does Anyone Know Who Purchased this 1928 Coleman?

That's my very dear fried, the late Don Chew (1935-2017) standing in front of a 1928 Coleman 3-ton truck (chassis #5134), originally owned by M.C. Hubbell, as part of his fleet of (6) Coleman trucks with 3yd dump beds and single-axle ore trailers, who contracted to haul ore to the local rail head for the Eagle-Picher Mine in Ruby, AZ.   Don Evans, of Bakersfield CA, owns (2) of the other Colemans, complete with Coleman single-axle ore trailers, from the same fleet of trucks. 

The truck was later purchased in 1986 by the late George L. Coleman, Jr. (1912-1997), and then partially-restored by the late Don Chew (1935-2017). Don removed the dump bed and replaced it with a tank body, with plans to paint it yellow and letter it as a Pennzoil delivery truck, since G.L. Coleman, Jr., was on the Pennzoil board of directors. To clarify, G.L. Coleman, Jr. briefly served as the president of Coleman Motors from 1945-1947, after his father had passed away.

This truck was recently purchased from the Don Chew Estate and was last seen being hauled north through Wyoming by Bob Spooner. Does anyone know who purchased it?

Coleman #5134 headed north across Wyoming earlier this year on Bob Spooner's rig.  Does anyone know who purchased this 1928 Coleman from the Don Chew Estate?  Photo by Sammy Führe -- please credit.

They put some miles on them in Salinas, the road miles don't hurt them the fields do, with the quaduaple underdrives in them it seems to take 20 feet once you push the clutch in to unwind, I put 50 miles a day on mine.

I suppose they would not run up a lot of miles over their lifetime, but probably motor hours are high

There were still a few of them motoring around the last time I loaded produce out of Salinas about a year ago.

Numerous examples still running around Yuma, AZ.

There used to be a bunch of them in Santa Maria and one contractor in Guadalupe, I haven't seen one there in years, they all went to Denair trailers.  Up in Salinas there are still some in use.  Many of them while in use got converted over to diesel motors and  a couple got to some sort of air cooled engine, the last couple years of manufactue they went to full air brakes
