American Truck Dataplates

Recommended Posts

Ok first post here looking for help

I purchased a couple of Sherman tank dataplates a few weeks ago and they came with some US truck plates.

1. A Fargo Trucks model FXK678 data plate

2. An REO 7 1/2 ton 6x6 tractor truck  USAAF Model 29XS data plate ( this was the USAAF fuel tanker)

 

Plus three separate  instruction plates for:

1. To dilute crankcase oil with gasoline plate

2. Transmission  gear positions /transfer case/truck brake plate

3. an RPM and loss of air brake plate

 

Can any one confirm if these are from either the REO or the Fargo trucks ?

I'm sure I recognise the 2100RPM plate from a Diamond T, 4 ton 6 x 6

Thank you Gordon.  It was an eclectic mix of plates and also included two repro plates (Weasel and Bantam trailer). So they could come from anything.

The Sherman plates were for a Chrysler built 105mm and Pressed Steel Car Co 76mm plus a 76mm dimension plate.

N.B. they came from Switzerland.

In which can the 'dilute' plate ma be Weasel too. 😀

The shift pattern on the last plate isn't something I've seen before though

I have found that Ward La France wreckers have the exact same wording on two separate plates as on the  Engine speed and warning buzzer combined plate shown above.
