Diamond T Trucks 1911-1966 - Photo Archive

The Diamond T Motor Car Company manufactured automobiles until 1911 when the first truck, purchased by a satisfied automobile customer, led to exclusive truck production and soon gained legendary status as style leaders.
While ''The Handsomest Truck in America'' became a long-standing slogan, Diamond T also emphasized its engineering leadership. Builders of more than 1500 Class B Liberty trucks in World War I, Diamond T produced nearly 50,000 thousand prime movers, half-tracks, army wreckers, tank tractors, and tank movers in World War II.

The late 1940s were years of peak production, but as the 1950s progressed, Diamond T found independent status problematic. The White Motor Company purchased Diamond T in 1958; moving production from Chicago to Reo's manufacturing facilities in Lansing, Michigan, in 1960, creating the Lansing Division to produce Diamond T and Reo trucks.

Both Diamond T and Reo ceased to be separate trucks starting in 1967 when White's new Diamond Reo Division began producing Diamond Reo trucks. Travel back in time to see these handsome trucks in large archival photos with in-depth captions.

Les véhicules Diamond T de l'U.S. Army

Entre 1940 et 1945, ce sont un peu plus de 50 000 véhicules que la Diamond T Motor Car Company livre à l'armée américaine ainsi qu'aux Alliés. Dans cette production, un peu plus de 30 000 sont des camions lourds 4-ton, 6x6, qui connaîtront de nombreuses versions : cargo, dépanneuse, porte-ponton, benne du génie, caisse cartographique, etc.

Le « Diamond » sera présent sur tous les théâtres d'opérations, là où sa robustesse et sa fiabilité lui permettront d'assumer toutes les tâches sans faiblir. En raison de son savoir-faire en matière d'engins lourds, Diamond T sera aussi mis à contribution pour la production du célèbre Half-track, avec plus de 10 000 exemplaires.
L'ensemble de ces modèles sont décrits dans cet ouvrage par un grand spécialiste de la question, à l'aide d'archives et de centaines de photos d'époque.
