Thanks for the photo's, Ed. :thumbs: 

 

The horses look great.

 

The Farmall/JD is some creation. Could be some arguments as which way to go there. :D

 

I'd be a bit leery of trying out the Felton Flyer I think.

Thanks for posting these Ed!

 

I took special interest in this one, since I live right on the edge of Spring City.  I believe this one came from Jones Motor, a local trucking company that's been in business in one form or another since 1894, I think this is probably one of their very first motor trucks.

 

Thanks again!

     I was also interested in these two 5th wheelers Ed.  

Really interesting chain drive and mechanical brakes.

   My Dad had a small trucking business when I was a youngster.    He had 4 cab over GMCs pulling car carriers for Dallas & Mavis in Fort Wayne Indiana in the '50s.   As a 13 yo, I regularly drove them the 10 mile to a Gulf station where I worked.  I pumped a lot of grease onto those 5th wheel plates.

Many years ago I restored a 1919 American LaFrance fire engine which had chain drive and mechanical brakes. When driving it over a high-rise bridge I just stayed in first gear all the way!
