Where I started out we had one Bubblenose left in service and it was a 50 if I recall....we then got several new White Freightliners. Eventually the White end of things came to an end and back to just Freightliner.

For governments who try to tax themselves into prosperity is like standing in a bucket and trying to lift themselves up by the handle.

Two Books: My error on the White. It was the 1960's before I got into Freightliners. I knew White had a 25-year marketing agreement. I just did not think backwards. (At my current age, 87, I have trouble thinking "forwards", to).

Thanks everyone, these are such a neat old truck. Every time I work on this thing I keep thinking you could still use thing with a little updating. The aluminum rear axle is sure interesting.

So you don't go on a wildgoose chase the grille manufacturer name on a 1949 Freightliner Bubblenose dosn't include the name White. Freightliner and White got together in 1951.

You will want a Grille with a name plate "White Freightliner". White had exclusive sales rights that ended in the mid 1970s

I bought a 1949 Freightliner from another great member on this site, trying to accumulate some info and a grille. I have restored some old Jeep's, Ford model a and can't believe how little information there is on these old trucks. I love a challenge and meeting people along the way. If anyone knows a direction to point me for information on old freightliners it would be greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas. Bryan
