WW1 trucks (Duke do you have these in your collection?)

Postby KSaarni » Mon Nov 12, 2018 4:52 am

While visiting on the 11th of November Ypres (Ieper) region, I saw these two trucks fueling...
They are fueling either 95 or 98 (green handle)

They look like being the real stuff.

Anyone who can identify these two trucks ?
I can identify the Ford on top of one... :-)

Thanks Joe, it was extremely cool! But holy ghost how strong the smell of the exhaust fume was from these two...
And the noise from the engines!

Wow! Now there’s something you don’t see on the roads nowadays. Very cool WW1 era vehicles.

Have googled a little bit...

Could one be the Liberty truck, the that is fueled ?

These are awesome pics man! I can't identify these as I've not seen them before. They do have some similarities to later trucks like the Morris, but I have no idea what they are. Therefore, I have not gotten them in my collection.

The vehicle in the back however does appear to be the Ford Model T scout car as you mentioned. I do have a little 1/72 scale model of that one.

Thanks for posting these.
