Have I mentioned that my job can sometimes feed my old truck addiction?  Today I stopped at a customers place.  I had only been there once previously and we missed him when my predecessor was showing me around.  I knew then that I was gonna like this guy when I finally met him and today I met him and YES I do like him.  Guess I should mention that he has several Dodge Power Wagons setting around his place and in his shop, garage, and barn.  Both upper & lower levels of his barn.  He has a coach built crew cab Power Wagon, he has a Bell Telephone Power Wagon, he has a US Forest Service Power Wagon and is currently restoring a Fire Truck Power Wagon.  He never did say how many but the count is over 20!  I also just emailed to him info on our website and organization and I suspect he will be joining our ranks within a few days!

I love my job!

Krooser, 

I'm pretty sure the aluminum cab was available in the early sixties....and the change over from the Emeryville (DCO-405) to the CO-4000 was in '65.

The story I got on the Paymaster... was that a lawyer, out in California, bought it to drive around just to P-off his neighbors

Chris,  That Aluminum cab is not original.  This truck had a steel cab.  Dave sent the truck and alum cab to Steve Koester and Steve & his crew modified the cab in the necessary places for it to fit (shifter, etc) the original chassis.  I seen the cab a couple times while Koester's was working on it.    They also did the paint work on it.  Koester's does a lot of Dave's body & paint work.

I believe 1966 was the only year the Emeryville was available with the aluminum cab... the Budd wheels probably point to a west coast original owner...





Over 4 million miles since 1972... No wonder I''m tired!

...and today I had a great sales day, 9,000.00.  Then I stopped to see various friends outside of my sales area and had some good results for work as well as some very good leads on old truck stuff.  I found an 8V71/10 speed salvaged from a cut Ford dump truck on my 1st stop, 2nd stop I learned that a friend may part with his 4070B which I have posted pic's of here before.  The 8V92 runs but may have hydro-locked and bent rods.  Will run off idle but if left to idle begins to blow white smoke and sounds very bad & is down on power (per the owner).  On my 4th stop I found an IHC 4300 with a bad frame but a good 8V92 and 1, maybe 2 sets of Jakes for same new, never installed as well as a B61 Mack and two KW short hoods (hoods only) on the ground. one from a '75 & the other from an '80.



Oh yeah, then there is this.  Danny's Detroit S60 gave up the ghost in his Volvo so they converted this Cummins powered firetruck into a tractor. 30,000 original miles.

Eddy,  as for the Paymaster.  It is now in California according to Mark Schroyer, who I had the opportunity to meet today.

Brocky,  Dave was telling me that the REO is basically a "one off" as they typically have rounded corners with corner glass between the windshields and doors. This on is completely squared off without the corner windows.

Terry, You're very right. I have had a bad case of CRS for as long as I can..... what was I talking about??? :D Anyhow, I found that truck in a storage yard just north of Indian Lake back in '08 on a motorcycle trip. When I returned to get a closer look at the truck in the spring, it was gone. Couple months later, Dave invited me down to their yard to look at a CLT-9000 he thought I may be interested in. Sure enough, there was the Emeryville sitting on their lot. The cab was shot and now I recall Dave saying they had a good aluminum cab to swap with it.

Koester's does some really awesome work. I had asked George back in Auburn who did their paint work? He told me about Koester's and said that they were there at the convention. I had them take a look at my truck and give me a price on striping my K-100. Needless to say, way outta my budget. Hope some day I can save up and have them paint it.

Some more of Koester's handywork:

This is a very interesting "REO" as it is one of the "Mix and Match" trucks built by the White Motor Co on the Lansing Mich production line during the 60's prior to the establishment of the Diamond REO name on May 1st, 1967. There has been some extensive discussion of these trucks on the WAI forum.

  This tractor uses the Diamond T 931 cab and is entirely different from the  AC-403 "REO" cabover which Roger Gerhart of Litiz PA has.
