Default Gramm Trucks

Good evening everyone. I'm just wondering if anyone knows about how many Gramm trucks , not Graham, are still around? I have a 1928 Boyer Gramm Special fire truck. I know of 1 other like mine, but not heard of or read about any others. Thanks

If you're going to be inquiring about Gramm trucks, you'll have to decide whether to cast a narrow or wide net...
Ben Gramm had a considerable history in truck manufacturing. You should check your local public library for a copy of either Georganos World Trucks (the big one, not the little one with just names/addresses etc) or Mroz's Ency of US trucks...
You should find entries for (or mention within those entries) for Gramm, Gramm-Bernstein, Gramm-Kincaid and Gramm-Pioneer...
Oddly, while Mroz mentions other fire truck builders Boyer isn't shown (I don't have Georganos big book)...
Didn't think to Google for a Gramm club or facebook page...
Sheesh---in checking my indexes saw I forgot that Gramm was also building Condor trucks...

Thanks for the info. I believe mine is just a Gramm. I have attached the original invoice I got with the build file of the truck.

Dad purchased ours from Walter Huffman in Wauseon. Mom has the history. It was a circus wagon at one point and then converted to a farm truck. It has a hoist.

It was one of several local trucks that were used to film Hoffa where the protesters were jumping in front of trucks trying to deliver produce to the market in Detroit. The last 2 are of it on display.

It has a sign in the cab: Do not drive over 35.
