Everyone loves a big diamond right? This may be the largest Diamond T ever made (1954 model 921), or 2nd largest after the model 980 of 1943.





This resides at the Motor Transportation Museum in Campo, and if you have knowledge or photos of this truck while it was in use, please let me know, and I'll pass it along, or email them direct. Or both!

Hemmings just posted a 1943 model 980 which may be bigger and have a higher haulage rating: http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2014/06/29/hemmings-find-of-the-day-1943-diamond-t-model-980m20/

    1. I looked, and though the Hemmings article doesn't state the size or load capacity, I think we have to suppose it's a bigger truck based on the bigger model #. It stands to reason that the capacity is reflected in the model #, everyone else has used that method for indicating capacity... thanks SB!
