Kansas City Sterling, 1974 model S6-262, owned by Erv Bickford. Brian Kelly has this one. This truck is no relation to the classics from Milwaukee or the later models built by Freightliner after they bought Ford's heavy truck line. For more info on the Sterlings fron Kansas City, see this previous WAI thread from January 2011.

Thanks to Warren Richardson for the photos.

Erv, we are really going to miss you around here. Rest in peace.

It was about 1978 and I had been in Chicago for a week or so visiting friends and was heading back home to Colorado. First I stopped in Highland Il and checked out the old Hug factory, at that time it was making cardboard boxes. The I stopped in the Collinsville area and called on Chuck Rhoads who knew everything there was to know about Hugs and had some of the factory archves and spent several hour visiting and gawking wide eyed at his collection. Very nice and accomodating fellow. Even spotted a couple of Hugs as I was driving around. Then It was on to KC and I decided to call on the Sterling operation. All I knew was what was in Georgano. I managed to locate the office and "plant" in a railyard in downtown KC. Don't recall the fellows name, but he was accomodating and friendly. Most trucks were custom built for railroads. He was an admirer of the Milwaukee Sterlings. When he decided to build trucks, he called White and received permission to use the name. His factory, as I recall was a long two bay garage. he talked about expanding production. And he showe me a concept drawing of a COe he was considering building. Very Euro - it was lower than an American COE and the front axle was set back. He was going to use a air cooled Deutz V-10. I don't supoose it was ever more than a dream to him. And I do not think production continued too long after that. But it was a couple or three very interesting hours.
