    I have received 3 ea. photos from a friend, he visited 1977 Pont-de-Veaux, Saone ca. 100 km nirth of Lyon. On a brass badge there was to read: US Army Truck, Quartermaster Corps, Chassis no. 4509, Assembler 6, Freight capacity 5500 LBS, Total loaded weight 665 LBS,

    Total gasoline capacity 38 gals, Governed speed 12 mph, Inspected 9449 date 5.4.18. Could this equipment be original? (2 photos follows)






    The U.S. government designed a truck for military use in WWI. This was called the Liberty Truck. These trucks were built by several automotive manufacturers in the U.S. Among these was Pierce-Arrow. Considering the data on the brass badge, this may well be a surviving Liberty Truck that was shipped to France. To the best of my knowledge, there was no indication on the Liberty Trucks of which company built them.
