Re: Durant huckster truck

I just was trying to get some info on the the huckster truck, because I can not find much info. I have a 1927 Durant star huckster truck. Just wondering if anybody had any info about it.

Many of the wooden bodies that Durant/Star put on were from the Mifflinburg body works in Pennsylvania. That's not saying all bodies were made by them, I'm sure that you could buy the chassis and then go to any body manufacturer and have a body built for you. This past weekend I was browsing through some of the old club magazines and came across and advertisement for the wooden truck bodies. A number of different styles were available.

Re: Durant huckster truck

Yep Mike about truck bodies. Number of different styles and Co's. Leaside seems to have used, Canada Carriage & Body Company of Brantford, Ontario. Which is why Can trucks bodies differ in looks to US ones.
