Daryl is right. It is a T-100 Gar Wood, they were only built from 1965 to 69. It is a combination front and rear loader, with unitized construction( no frame ) and front wheel drive. I think it was a wee bit ahead of its time and never really caught on.

Here goes nothing. Walter with a Pak-Mor. This one is unusual in another way,as it looks to be a front,and rear loader. Haven't seen many like that.

Daryl Gushee is all over this one, this truck is indeed the Gar Wood T-100. Mike Pacitto has saved me the trouble of giving a few details, so the best thing I can do is provide a link to the Classic Refuse Trucks page on these trucks. Thanks to Bill White for the photos and Link.

I thought the same thing, was afraid I might have gone off the deep end after the Ford C question earlier today then this....
