Vintage Machinery and Vehicles


This is the rear frame and tank from an early vintage water truck. I’m no expert but judging from the construction style and the use of wooden timbers, I’m guessing it could date back to the late 1910s or early 1920s. It is still mounted on the rear frame of the vehicle but has been set up for use as a stationary tank at an old mill near Pigeon Spring, NV. The cab is missing, along with the cab portion of the frame.
