Default White truck 1920s heavy duty on solid rubber tyres

Hi. I am looking for information on how to establish the model type and year built of big White trucks with I-Beam chassis and solid rubber tyres. I have a rolling chassis and am chasing up more parts. Is anyone an expert on these early trucks? I have seen the odd one about in the past, but they aren't common and I can't see much online.
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
Andrew Gibb. Australia.

White trucks with the very heavy duty frame were made over quite a number of years. Are you looking for general information, or are you trying to date a specific truck? Here is an interesting thread on a lighter White truck: https://forums.aaca.org/topic/197464...y-white-truck/

Here is another link that may be of interest:

Bruce Ohnstad, who posts on the ATHS web site seems to be very well informed on White trucks, he may be able to assist.

Good luck. Steve

While I don't follow "mainlines", I think there's at least one White truck club or group with a website...try Googling antique or vintage White trucks, should come up.and should be quite helpful...

hi Andrew, from what I know the larger models 3 5 and 6 ton were chaindrive upto around 1918 then chaindrive was dropped, and a beveldrive conventional diff was used, I have a 1918 5 ton model TC waiting to be restored as well as an earlier 3 ton model, from pictures ive seen the I beam chassis was used up to almost the thirties, the white roadbuilder dumptruck being a popular choice for heavy work, hope this helps mate
also you could get yourself a copy of 'white trucks 1900 - 1937 by Don Bunn'
cheers mike.
