Did White trucks have Diamond T and Reo and then combine them to Diamond Reo? Around 1974 I was looking for a new heavy tandem and got a price on a Diamond Reo and remember the sales person saying someone else had purchased Diamond Reo by that time. I ended up buying a not too old Ford LT9000 though.

A guy by me has a Marmon for sale and it runs! think he was askin $3500

They were supposedly the Cadillac for the owner operator at one time.

I don't recall anyone I know having one 

I have seen a dump like that one around here I wonder if one of big construction outfits had a fleet of them at one time.

The long haul trucks would have all been sleepers
