Wow, even when we post a lousy image of a rare, relatively unknown truck, our experts get it ! This is indeed a 1912 Lauth-Juergens. Jacob Lauth & Company started building trucks in 1907 in Chicago. A year later Theodore Juergens joined the enterprise. Perhaps their most valued employee was Magnus Hendrickson, who fabricated the 1st truck and later became chief engineer. Henrickson's two sons, George and Carl, came aboard also. In 1913 the Hendricksons left to start their own truck building venture which proved to be very successful. Lauth-Juergens became the Fremont-Mais in 1914 and was bought out a year later by H.G Burford, who continued to build trucks under his own name until 1938, although production was small and later, very specialized. Thanks to Dan Souday for the ad.

LAUTH; LAUTH-JUERGENS (US) 1907-1914 (1) J. Lauth & Co., Chicago, In. 1908-1910

(2) Lauth.Juergens Motor Co., Fremont, Ohio 1910-1915

Magnus Hendrickson built the first trucks for Jacob Lauth & Co., a tanning plant. These were light, conventional, chain-driven, gasoline-powered vehicles with a closed delivery body and cab roof.

Theodore Juergens joined Lauth in.1908, and they built light cars and trucks on a limited scale. As their employee, Mr. Hendrickson, a talented inventor, designed the first hollow-spoke steel wheel (1906), a 3-speed transmission (1909), a quiet 2-speed bevel-gear transmission for chain­driven vehicles, a jaw-clutch transmission, and the first worm-drive axle. For a decade or so, worm drives became popular on trucks although only rarely on cars (Stutz was one).

In 1910 Lauth-Juergens moved their operations to Fremont, Ohio. to build trucks exclusively, at which time Lauth-Juergens became a stock company. Magnus Hendrickson was appointed chief engineer and designer, and his sons, George and Carl, also followed to the Fremont location.

Lauth-Juergens trucks and buses were assembled vehicles in one of the common fashions of the day, the cab-­over type with chain-drive, artillery wheels, solid tir.es, and right-hand drive. These vehicles had full cabs, the truck having a flat vertical windshield area, while the bus had a windshield built like a 3-piece bay-window. This latter feature carried over into the design of Mr. Hendrickson's own trucks in 1913. Lauth-Juergens' 1913 models were offered in capacities of 1,2,3, and 5 tons, while the motor was guaranteed for life.

Robert Hendrickson, another son who had joined Lauth­-Juergens, took charge of the plant for one year after Mr. Hendrickson and his other two sons left Fremont to form their own truck manufacturing company in Chicago.

In 1914 the name of the truck was changed to Fremont­ Mais; this lasted until 1915 when it was purchased by the H.G. Burford Co.

That tilt cab is something for 1912, I wonder if Sterling saw this when they built their "modern" G model tilt cab in 1935 ??
