Diamond T or Reo ? I thought that these were two separate makes?

Quote Diamond T or Reo ? I thought that these were two separate makes?

White, to whom both Reo and Diamond T belonged, merged the two in 1967 to form 'Diamond Reo Trucks'. Production was stopped due to bankruptcy in 1975.
This truck is from the 1950s and therefore a 'Diamond T'.

4x4 23,

Are you sure about the history on this? I have talked with Mike Kerik several times and know the Bruhn's fairly well. The history you have here doesn't match what they have told me. Anything you can add would help.

Hi Guy's

I am a retired trucker and use to drive one of these in my early years of trucking in I think 1968 & 1969 when I was 20 and 21 years old, I drove it as a potato truck for 2 years, and it was an Identical Twin to this truck, my truck was a 1963 Diamond T 921 DFN and I can bet this one is too, cause all the other years the DFN's has fog lights built into the bumper, except for 1963, it was just a plan bumper like this one, so I have to say this truck was or is a 1963

see link below of a 1963 Diamond T 921 DFN with the chrome fancier grill

all I can say is this truck should be listed as a 1963 Diamond T 921 DFN
