  1. I asked him how his grandfather got it down and he said that he hired a dozer to build a road up to it and they towed it back down the road and that's how the drive line got bent, with the dozer loading it on a trailer. He said his grandfather had it for 40 years and he's had it for 10 and that his grandfather found all this history out when he bought the salvage rights and paid the back taxes to get the truck off the mountain. I would think it had some sort of a dump bed on it but there are no welds on the frame or holes where a dump bed would have been mounted.
  2. The truck is in Oklahoma City. The truck was recovered from a abandoned mine up in the White Mountains of California about 50 years ago by the grandfather of the guy I purchased it from. It was bought new from the plant in San Diego by Champion Mining Co to mine sallimanite for the manufacturing of spark plugs (Champion Spark Plugs). Shipped by railroad to the base of White Mountain, disassembled and hauled up mountain on donkeys. The mine closed in 1942 and the truck was left behind. That's all the history I have on the truck, but what a great history!
  3. I emailed you some pics, if you did not receive my email let me know. Thank you Frank

  5. Hey old truck lovers The wife and I just purchased a buisness 150 miles away and will be moving there. I had every intention of restoring this thing when I bought it, but now the new place has limited garage space and I'm afraid with this new buisness I will have little time for the project. Long story short I am selling this rare beauty, although some items were removed in this photo (so the would'nt be stolen) I have the complete truck, hood, original brass radiator (spent $400 having all new cores put in), fan blade, pulley and idler,2 mags, carburetor, exhaust manifold, water pump. Engine
  6. Anyone looking for a great project or know someone I am selling this 1923 moreland. I have the complete truck and components.

  8. I'm with you I don't thinks its from wear either, holes to perfect for that. Yes the greens are the same.
  9. Just wondering why this perfectly round hole is in this cover plate and is it supposed to be there? Rear differential on a 1923 chassis
  10. She is a 1923 Moreland I've graciously named Beauty and the Beast lol. I'm super excited about this project as I have never taken on anything like this. Pulling the engine and going thru it this weekend. Thanks for the advice and interest in the truck Carl.
