Gator , i found a brochure and there stood a wheelbase from 146 inch and 164 inch , mack diesel , 6 cil-138 hp/ 2400 rpm

so i am a little bit closer to some answers

and found 1 picture of a model A with tandem axles [ truck and trailer ]

the other i found was a dump ore mixer style chassis

and when i found something i like this more and more
