carsntrucks4you Posted January 30 Share Posted January 30 (edited) This garbage truck was build in Tuerkey and had an old name of a company that was closed in 1961 in the USA. Chrysler Corporation introduced the DeSoto brand of trucks in 1937 to provide a greater number of sales outlets overseas for the American-built Dodge and Fargo commercial vehicles. The DeSoto brand was badge engineered sporadically on Dodge trucks made in Argentina, Australia, Spain, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Chrysler ended its truck operations in international markets in 1970. However, both the DeSoto and Fargo brands continued to be used on trucks made by Askam in Turkey. In 1978, Chrysler sold its share in the Askam venture to its Turkish partners. This truck is a Desoto AS700 (Askam AS 700) The correct answer were sent in by Fabrux otherunicorn thatz4u Congratulations Edited February 6 by carsntrucks4you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
