Default Federal truck possibly 1918

Hi again with another truck question. A friend has a Federal truck which he would like to know the year built. The truck was built on wooden wheels with solid tyres. It is a 1.5 ton, model TE, then stamped 12.118 and the truck number is 22203. The Continental engine is number 25076 C4.

Thanks again for any help.

I have the book Federal Trucks 1910-1959 by Herman Sass published in 1992. It mentions a model TE in 1920 & 1922. There is a serial number chart stating "Starting with model "S" all cars numbered without regard to model from 11000 up".
The model TE is a 1.5-2.0 ton truck on a 144" WB. Sorry, the book does not contain serial number ranges by year.

1920 Federal serial numbers begin with number 19130, and go up from there. If they built 2 to 3 thousand trucks per year, that would put your truck around a 1921-1922 model. I will do more checking. Steve

Andrew I checked on a friends Federal which is a 1921 model SD. The serial number is 23748. Based on my earlier post, that would narrow your truck's year to a 1920 or 1921. If you can locate a copy of Branham's Automotive Reference book, they give a great listing of auto and truck serial numbers as well as their locations. The 1920 edition is readily available on the internet, but other editions are not always easy to find.

Maple Leaf trucks aren't that rare here in Australia.

Maple Leafs were built in Canada (and maybe AU?) by Chev...or maybe Chev's built in Canada is more accurate??...but I have no idea of the similarities/differences, and there mayve been export (AU etc) differences as well...'
