"1927 Indiana, model 127, This truck was put into storage in mid 1930's. It is original, unrestored, with 12459 miles. Not even broke in yet. It rides on Goodyear hard rubber tires, with the rear tire being wider than the front. We watch the Indiana earn its keep, doing what it was intended to do. It passes the camera with a load of dirt, and dumps it at the pit. We then watch an Oshkosh pass the Indiana on the dirt road. Indiana Truck Corp built trucks from 1910-1933 in Marion, IN. From 1928-1932, Indiana Trucks was controlled by Brockway. In 1932, White purchased Indiana Truck Corp for there good name and dependability.
This truck will stay like you see it. There are a lot of original details that can't be seen in the video. It would be a disgrace to remove the originality of this truck by "restoring" it. Believe it or not, the truck is worth more in this condition than if it were all painted and polished up"
"The lift is hydraulic and it is original to the truck. Hydraulic systems were not common back then, but they did exist"
