The first post are test loads on 55-2878 Quick Haul 12's from Buffalo, NY, Westboro, MA and Edison, NJ (Rangers)
This post has Test loads from Westboro (1&3)
The "Quick 6" I can't remember where. They were built for around big airports and in this case, GM had a program where Caddy dealers could buy out of a pool at the railhead or nearby plant and not to have them on their lot, on their floorplan. We would have to deliver them within 24 hours of the retail sale.
#3 picture is of what we referred to as an 11 Car. You have a ton of pictures of them on your Flicr account.
I love the picture of the 2600 Quickloader. When they were first built, they were too long for MA and we got stopped for overlegnth constantly. They were my favorite trucks to load. We were always with too much "Ovrerhang" which is different from overlength.

That's a Commercial Carriers car hauler. Ryder bought them and that's what M&G folded into so the pictures of the trucks I posted are from the same company.

Re: GM Semis

How long did they run those? Do you know the story behind the cab design? Here is a Ford version

I just realized these pictures threads have become a bit screwed up... and I've been going right along with it. This thread is for GM trucks and we have other makes being show. And we have the "Trucks Are Beautiful" thread for other makes with GM trucks being posted there. Not a real big deal, but these threads have been running a long time sticking to their original form. Let's keep it that way from here on.

You're right! My carhaul truck was the last of the White/GMC Volvos.
I have no idea how long they ran those trucks. The Convoy Co. got melded into Allied Systems that bought the carhaul division of Ryder so I ended up working for them, also.

Re: GM Semis

Those non-GM car haulers came from my Flickr pages. Whitehead and Kales built about 10 of the Dodges for Comm Carriers about 1950. The Convoy was also one of about ten Convoy built in their shops in Portland. Other photos and details on Flickr. Bay Colony mentioned overhang. Look at the over hang on this rig.
