I'm thinking that the engine should be a Continental ?

Thank you Bruce. As I search info on this truck I'm finding just how rare they are.

I was wondering if you had the hood and radiator.  You do, so this project looks pretty good.  An old Moreland is rare and has good reputation.  Congrats, good luck, and keep in touch.

Jeff,
Roy is in Washington state. He was past president of the Northwest Chapter ATHS.

I know this because I'm a big fan of his Moreland.


Thanks Stretch. I should have looked that up instead of going by memory.

Yes I have the radiator, hood and drive shaft. I have a lot of research a head of me. Still trying to figure out this site.

That is a great project you have there. Please keep us posted on your progress.

Roy Friis is an ATHS member in California who has had a restored 1920's Moreland for many years. He might be a good place to start.

Here are a couple of pictures of early '20's Morelands.

If you look in Google Books you will find the specifications in old magazine issues.

Nice truck.

Do you have the radiator? Morelands used a sectionalized type.

Just found and purchased this 1923 Moreland. I have no idea where to get any information about this truck, I got a great story on the history of the truck and would like to get her back to or close to original condition. Any direction on what engine this is, where to find catalogs, anything would be greatly appreciated. http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/6fcc7860-35b8-45be-b3f1-92d3.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/54897790-0747-4389-b023-81ec.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/0de2538a-c943-4ca4-827f-6ec3.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/c207f39f-7843-4964-99bb-7843.jpg
