Look's like Ken Kafka's. Just saw it last week or so.

Yup. No doubt. Nash Quad.

I'm not sure who makes it but it looks like a WWI Liberty Truck, or maybe something that Pershing used chasing down Pancho Villa. But many different company's made what were called "Liberty Trucks" right?

Nash Quad is it, and a nice 1918 model at that. The Quad was originally designed and built by the Thomas B. Jeffery company and known as the Jeffery Quad, but when Charles Nash bought out Jeffery the name was changed to Nash Quad. Thousands of Jeffery and Nash Quads were bought by the U.S. Military during WW1, and the Nash Quad stayed in production until 1928. Bill White had this 1st; thanks to Brocky for the photos.

Toby, the standardized USA Liberty trucks were built by about 17 different manuafcturers, and none were all wheel drive. There was a standardized 4x4 built during WW1 that was known as the Militor, it's hood kind of resembled a Kelly-Springfield. I don't have a photo handy.

Brian is correct. This is Ken's truck. Picture taken at the HVTA show in Greeley Colo in 2009.

Jeff, I can do a quick capture of the Militor pics from the Vanderveen book.

Thanks Tatra, I would be interested in seeing those.

I don't know if this is a Militor or not, but I was thinking that it was. I'm sure someone out there can say. I'm not even sure this is a 4 x 4.

Looks like a French Latil (which I think was used by the US forces in Europe) and there are similarities. The Militor is attached below.

Cheers,

Thanks everyone. Those French sure knew how to build an ugly truck ! The Militor wasn't far behind.

A Renault-style hood might not look too bad on a Franklin or Renault automobile but it looks like crap on a truck.
