This is a very unusual COE. Emblems removed.

We are going to agree with the Diamond T prototype gang.

Introduced circa 1954 by Murty Brothers, Portland Oregon -- Prototype Diamond T Cabover

Trucks, give me trucks!!! --- I'M LIKING TRUCKSWhen we see what we want to see, and hear what we want to hear---- all too often we miss the point!


I'm where I'm at when I'm all there! But,when I'm here, how can I be all there?

It seems everyone must have seen this photo before as everyone is right. This truck is a prototype Diamond T COE, built by the Murty Brothers Automotive Equipment Company in Portland Oregon. The Murty's were quite well known in the Pacific Northwest for their custom trucks. I believe this fascinating COE was built around 1950. Brian Kelly had this 1st. Thanks to Joe Raymond for these photos he posted on Facebook.

From what Leroy has told me, Mr Tilt of Diamond T contracted the Murty Bros ( as his in house design engineers were working on the 921 COE) to design this low cab forward to compete with the White 3000.. Murty used the spring loaded counterbalanced tilting mechanism where White used an electric screw jack. The DT engineers also used the spring loaded tilt on the 921.

We do NOT know the exact relationship (late 40's to mid 50's) between the DT and IH design / engineering departments other than they were good personal friends. When IH saw the truck, they liked it and first under license and then purchase went it on to become the CO series IH. One of the WAI's about 3-4 years ago showed how this cab went on to become the Emeryville with DT building the prototype.
