Diamond T Dairy Truck

In 1938 Harbottle’s Jersey Products purchased a new Diamond T 1-ton pickup truck as a new delivery vehicle. Jeffery Harbottle personally travelled to Chicago to pick up the vehicle and drive it back home to North Vancouver. The truck continued to be used after the business was sold in 1942. In 1971 collector Dennis Montgomery rescued the vehicle from a scrapyard and displayed it with other antique vehicles at Expo 86, where it came to Jeffery Harbottle’s attention. When cleaning up the vehicle Dennis had discovered a set of Harbottle dairy milk bottle caps under the seats, confirming that it was the same truck Jeffery had driven back from Chicago 44 years earlier. In 1991 Jeffery acquired the the truck from Dennis and began a process of restoring the truck to its 1938 state. The process was completed by 1999 and the truck was donated to the NVMA in 2003. This series contains materials related to the original truck, such as manuals and original photographs, as well as a materials related to the rediscovery, restoration, display, and donation of the truck.

They have not been listed individually but the series consists of loose copies of the journal (1907-2000), digitized copies of the journal (1907-2010), plus an index to the journal for the period 1907-1966.
