    I've seen a simler Cat version,looked to be from the 30's. Any idea of the maker of the crawler? All around it's a neat era for add on attachments for the tractors of that time.

    That body is surprisingly modern looking, thanks, Hank

    No, FService, you are not alone, I wish you'd start a thread to show off your collection.

    Thanks Hank that's a very cool looking old truck there. I didn't have a pic of a Fargo truck.

    Here in Canada Dodge and Fargo are all most the same, like Chev and GNC.

    I remember Canfor at beaver Cove on Vancouver Island had these dodge power wagons for welding trucks.Old narrow hood units with Lincoln welders that had been converted from electric to gas drive ,with a steel roof on 4 posts built over it.The welder took up the whole back end of the truck,along with a set of torches and a grinder .That was a welding truck of the day,primitive but bullet proof.Antone remember these or have pictures?
