Here's my old 76 stepside, wish I still had her. I'll have to look around and see if I can find any other pics.

Show trucks...every year, the orders came through and we built whatever was called for. Back in 1986(?) they had a show truck that they gave away (called the Midnight Star?) through some promotion at the truck stops. I was told this thing was ALL black, except the tanks, mirrors, bumpers...whatever was usually chrome was powder coated gloss black. Interior was done up in some sort of tan leather from England(?), Brazil(?) and was the only one ever done. The guys who worked on this, said it was a very sweet looking truck...not sure what ever happened to it?


Found this yesterday in Gary Mortons collection on Hankstruckpictures

Thanks everyone. Can't wait to pick up a Diamond Reo and spend some quality time on one.

There's a company here in NC that has trailers like that. Whats the long frame for,
weight distribution?

It's due to Florida's bridge laws. They can legally haul 78,000 lbs with a single axle truck with 12k on the front axle.
