Is this what is commonly referred to as a "China Closet"?
By Brocky - Saturday, January 21, 2012 1:18 PM
Steve

Yes this is the "China Closet" cab. Started about 55-56 and ended about 61 with the introduction of the 931 which was squared off creating more interior room.

A real big sleeper!! Originally owned by Wrangler Blue Jeans. And yes they ran Greenville SC to El Paso Tex team with no A/C!!

Herters , That green and black cabover there is just sharp as can be !:) What exactly is it? Is it all Diamond-T or a T that landed on a freightliner ? Whatever it is I am a big fan! Fine job ! Love the paint job .  Tell me more about it , more pics are good too.

Herter,

I agree with Warren, That's a beaut Diamond T cabover. I to would like to know more about it. Superb paint scheme.

I wish now that I had dug deeper into that green truck.  It looks to me like it is as modern as anything on the road now, and will probably out work them, certaintly out last them. 

Otherwise, I don't know.  Who ever owns it spent a lot of money making avery nice truck.

That green Diamond T cabover is in the Beer City Chapter calendar for 2012. Says its a 1964 model 931c. Cummins small cam 350 with Fuller RTO9513 13 speed transmission. Has aluminum wheels all around now. Beautiful truck.  Brocky's pickup is pretty sharp looking also.

1947 404, before pic.  It looks different now.  Restored, b ut the paint job is really bad.  Dad paid some cowboy $2000 to paint it.  Looks like he used a brush and the idiot decided that HE needed to do some body work on the hood.  Took a torch to it which got the metal too hot and warped the rear, right top panel.  Now it won't fit to the cowl.  Dad parked the truck in the garage and won't work on it as he is so upset.



This one is a 1948 322.  It is on its way home having been rescued from a Kansas wheat farm where it spent its entire life.  A few bumps in the fenders but it is a good runner.  Grain box with a hoist is nice.

I believe the green and black D/T belongs to Richard Bula from Wisconsin. Beautiful truck for sure.

Hi Daryl,

Any Idea on a time frame yet? Not being pushy here just wondering.

No Don, No idea. It would cost him a lot more if I make a special trip and it's just a hobby truck.

Pat, what a great life he had, 103 years of memories, i have never seen that D-T before wonder what the power was and the end use.

Bill
By Forgottenhighway - Monday, January 23, 2012 7:58 AM
Bill,

Probably had a 300 Cummins. These were the super heavy version of the 950. The checkerplate fenders were necessary to cover the wider front axle. They were used mostly for off road logging and a few were destined for the coal fields.

Cheers,Pat
By Bill White - Monday, January 23, 2012 11:16 AM
Pat, I remember a 950 in Denver back in the 50s it had the Hall Scot butane engine in it.

I dug up this old Diamond T post so I could post this jewel owned by Jerry Howard. In my opinion this is a one of the best looking of the DTs.



By Mike_Blais - Monday, July 01, 2013 8:40 PM
Fred - I agree that is a nice one. It's a model 990S, the only one I've ever heard of. Instead of the big cast radiator usually found on a 990, this one has a grille with a normal radiator. I've never seen a 990S mentioned in any sales literature.
By FredD - Tuesday, July 02, 2013 1:55 AM
I talked to Jerry at Macungie and told him how much I liked the looks of that truck and he told me how some one he knows took interest in the truck and had done reasearch on it. I do not remember exactly what he said but I got the impression it is rare because of the front end.
By Mike_Blais - Sunday, July 07, 2013 4:46 AM
Another unusual one, although a Diamond Reo. A C-92 with the butterfly hood option. It shows up in the sales literature, but this is the only one I've seen.
