Salt Lake Diamond T
1947 Diamond T Model 201 1-ton.  Sold new by the Auburn Cord Duesenberg dealer in Salt Lake City that provided race vehicles and ground support for land speed record runs by Ab Jenkins from 1935 through 1949.  This truck was used by the Bonneville Intermountain distributor for General Tire through 1965. A General Tire employee bought the truck and retired it to Ranch duty in a remote desert town.  It was discoveed there in 2012.  It runs and drives.  It has a new gas tank and new brakes.

More history of this truck is being documented at http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=801156

The truck needs a good home more than I need the money.  I've got so little cash in it, I can afford to make someone a really good deal.  It will be advertised in the next issue of Hemmings  for $12,500.  I picked that number simply by trying to undercut all the other Diamond T's I could find for sale.  For that price, I am prepared to throw in the parts truck, because I suspect a lot of people would rather have the iconic pickup bed than the flatbed.  Although, I would rather see the truck go to someone who would keep it original. I've got plenty of room to make someone a good deal, and no offer would offend me.

Wheeler General Tire in Salt Lake City used this Diamond T 201 service truck in the 40's and opened this new $150,000 building in 1950.  Business was good for the tire that "Set New Records For Mileage"
