Re: Need Parts and Info on a 30? 615? Rugby Truck

Its a 615 or 616 depending on wheelbase. Has the 22A used 1930 to 1933 Rugby 6 cyl. Be a W8A if a 4cyl 406 and 416. (yes a 416 shown in Leaside aftermarkets, that might have been a typing error for 614 Rugby, now turns out to be correct with the surfacing of a 1933 Dominion manual giving models and dates)
If the hood is piano hinge its 1930 if not its 1931 Lansing or 1931 to 1933 Leaside. The dash plate didn't change from the 1930 style, but the hood did. It has Depress Beam headlights which suggest Leaside, as Lansing was Glolite on cars / Rugby's. I tend to think is a 615 1931 and later one and half ton. Cab / bed was probably made by an outside Co with chassis / cowl supplied by the plant. Leaside, Brantford something made the bodies for Can trucks.

Here's one you can rebuild Robin. It's just outside Henderson Ont and must have at least one piece off a Billy Durant vehicle. Front axle is not I beam but tubular, upside down for clearance. Has two updraft carbs on it, back to back, one drawing in from back the other drawing in from front. Its a 6 cyl and has the vacuum tank plus cam operated fuel pump on the engine. Front horns have .a place to hold a twin bar bumper. Couldn't identify anything on it. Might be PM. Justin Trudeau's personal limo he's thinking of loaning Donald Trump ha ha.

Whatever

Found it again .. Leaside supplied chassis and Canada Carriage and Body Company of Brantford, Ontario, did bodies on the Rugby's.
