How Many Mfgrs. for Ben Hur you ask?

Post by D.R.H. » Tue Mar 27, 2018 11:21 pm

Looks to me like 28 different manufacturers filled the War Departments' need for our wonderful Bun Hur trailer. :)

American Bantam, Ben Hur, Century Boat Works, Checker, Dorsey, Gertenslager, Henney, Hercules Body, Highland Body & Trailer, Hobbs, Hyde, Mifflinburg Body, Naburs, Nash Kelvinator, Omaha Standard Body, Pke, Queen City, Redman, Steel Products, Strick, Transportation Equipment Corp, Truck Engineering Corporation, Willys Overland, Winter Weiss, Baker, Covered Wagon Co., Keystone, And Streich.

That's a lot of Mfgrs. with a lot of possibilities for small distinctive variances. I.E. what point count on the grease/hub cap, 6 or 8. :wink:
