These are large laminated photos from the old offices of White Motor Co. in Ohio. Not sure of the year, if anyone knows it would be appreciated.

Thanks, AzTom

I'm not sure about the first one (maybe a Road Xpeditor 2); but the second pic is a White Road Commander II, probably late 1970s (1977 or 1978).

No clue on the year(s), but you would have no trouble seeing what's on the road in front of you driving the first one.  :blink:

 

Great pictures.  :)

Looks like an expeditor 2 and a road boss 2 around 1980. I remember the bottom pic was used in a lot of White ads. I drove a road boss 2, which was basically a commander cab with a hood. Made 1 trip driving a true cabover, 4070 Intl. while my truck was being worked on, 3 hr. trip, scared me to death! When I got home, I parked it and waited on my hood.Never got in a cabover again!!!

Thanks for the info. I did some research based on that and came up with 1978. The first one is on a 1978 ad for White trucks. It appears the 1979 and newer trucks had side marker lights.
