Hello from New York state, USA

Recommended Posts

Hello all. My name is Tad. I'm currently living in Lima, NY but am soon relocating to the Washington, DC area with my wife and 3 boys (8,5, and 2 years old).


I grew up around old cars and trucks, and have always wanted a Nash Quad, recently the opportunity to get one came up and I jumped at it. I now have two partial trucks, with most of the components to make one complete truck....although I am missing a couple of big things (radiator and a differential).


I'm trying to track down the remaining parts and deciding what kind of body I want to eventually put on the truck. Anybody have any idea what all uses they originally had? I know there were ammo boxes, and I've seen dump boxes. I would like to put something on that is period correct, but not common. I found a WW1 vintage truck on the forum here that had a crane on it....would that have been an original use of the truck or added sometime after, because I would love a crane. The picture below is the one I saw.



The Quad is by far the oldest thing I own. My other vehicles are; International '47 & '49 KB8s, '51 L190 wrecker, '60 R190 semi, Travelall, '64 F250, '67 MGB, '41 Nash, and a Ford AA Doodlebug(homebuilt tractor)

Hi Tad


A Quad will be a bit of fun. A diff and rad should turn up. There was a guy out in NY (a retired Doctor I think) who bought the remains of two Quads some years ago. Just chassis if I remember correctly. I saw photographs of them being recovered from the undergrowth. I wonder if they are the same ones. Forget the guys name. There were photos of them on this forum but many years ago.


Anyway, a few Quads were used for carrying a crane/hoist. Quite dissimilar from that French post war Liberty B conversion photographed there. The ammunition body was most common, but Quads also had the artillery supply body and some the workshop body. A crane would be fun. I will see what I can turn up for you.

Best regards
