Hello,
Here are a couple photos of my 1944 4 Ton 6X6 Diamond T Wrecker. Anymore Diamond T owners out there?
Thanks,

Steve: Nice Diamond T - - I especially like the unit you picked for the bumpers; nice touch for a DUKW owner.

Diamond T

Hello,
I got the markings on my Diamond T from a local veteran who was in that unit during WWWII. He showed me photos of the Diamond T wrecker he drove during WWII. After I hand painted all the markings on my truck I drove it over to the veterans home! He was quit shocked to see the Diamond T pull up in front of his house!
Thanks,

Steve:

That is really one good looking rig. I showed the picture to a neighbor that has a towing service, and he loved it.
