hi, yes i have had some luck with locating a white dump truck of the same age that has a radiator and a few other useful parts, just trying to negotiate buying them, through help from the motor transport museum in san diego CA i now know that my truck is a 3 ton model TC longwheelbase flatdeck not a 5 ton model TC as i thought originally, as far as restoration work i have done some chassis repairs, but until i find and acquire the parts i need doing any major work would be jumping the gun! thanks for your interest, mike.

Mike,

I am interested in what you are doing because I am studying the history of a local lumber company that used a ~1913 White Truck for transporting supplies. I believe it was also a 3 ton White Truck. On the internet there are not a lot of photos, so I would love it if you sent photos of your progress. It is my dream to build a model of the who lumber seen. As a part of that I would make a model of the White Truck.

Please keep in touch.

Matthew

Hi Mike, here's a couple of pics of the pedal assembly. It swivels easily, surface rust only. Let me know if it's correct for your application. The steering column I have does not have the box, it's the column, steering wheel spider, horn button, gas pedal and bracket where it bolts to the firewall.
