This early truck manufacturer was almost on to something. Photos from Bill White.

That looks like a newer version of the wagon with the driven front axle from the Boyertown museum that we saw at Macungie about 3 years ago. I cannot remember the name, Beyer??? or something like that?? You used it as a WAI shortly after the show.

Wow - no clue what it is! Don't see anything resembling a brake drum in back or much in front either - is that a taut chain drive to the front or just a radius rod? Maybe that thing sticking out from the back of the cab is a splined drive to a worm in back? Gotta love rare and unusual - but not sure about seriously nuts.

This unique truck is indeed a Pull-More. Pull-More trucks were built in Detroit by the Pull-More Truck Company from 1914 to 1917. Albert Mroz says Pull-More built prototypes of 1,2, & 3 ton capacities and it appears to me there were few if any production models built. These trucks used a front drive axle just as a 4 wheel drive would, but had no rear drive axle. Another unique feature was the side tilting power train for easy servicing. Thanks to Bill White for the Pull-More article. John Frances had this 1st and also sent the great photos below.

Amazing photos. Just roll the engine over to work on it. In the middle picture, the one guys face is blurry, just like Jeff obscures the namplates. The guy on the left looks like he's pounding his head with his fist or doing "The Scream"
