Model 80 D, Chasses number 304570
WatchmanII - Oct 09, 2007 - Model 80 D, Chasses number 304570
Original history of this truck is posted in Diamond T Registry. The information above will get you to the original story.
Many hours of work - now the fun.
I have attended many car shows and antique truck and tractor shows. The 80 D is always very popular and I usually loose my voice in the afternoon, as so many people are interested in the truck and the history.
I have kept the truck original as much as possible. The truck was purchased new in Butte Montana for use on a dairy farm. Now the truck is in Ferndale, WA. Hope to see you!

2 Diamond T 3/4 ton panel trucks.
In 1939 my father and his brothers bought 2 Diamond T 3/4 ton panel trucks. one was sold in the early 40's but my father kept his until 1963. I have many pictures of our beloved Diamond T, which was not only our work truck but also our family transportation until I got a car in 1951. I still have the emblem from the horn, and the nameplate from the engine compartment. I am delighted that other people share my affection for Diamond T's. Tom Karones

1948 Diamont T
1936 Diamond T pickup
My brother and I are the proud owners of a Diamond T pickup. It was purchased and driven off the showroom floor by our late father. The Diamond T was used by our grandfather's company to haul dynamite and nitroglycerine in the oil fields of California. After the company was sold, my father bought the truck, and we have had it ever since. A couple of years ago, we had it refirbished to as close to its original state as possible.
Originally, the company purchased two Diamond Ts. I have been told that one was the deluxe and the other standard. One of the trucks was involved in an accident, and we still have some of the original parts.
I would be happy to communicate with any other Diamond T pick up owners.
I have been ready some of you answers to questions. I would like to set the record straight. White Motor Corporation bought REO in 1957 and then bought Diamond T in 1958. In 1960 White Motor Corporation moved Diamond T to Lansing, MI where the REO's and Diamond Ts and some model White Trucks came off the

In 1905 Charles Tilt formed the Diamond T Motor car Company of Chicago . During the first 6 years, custom built passenger cars were manufactured by hand in the rear of a small one story garage. Diamond T switched exclusively to building trucks, discontinuing its passenger line in 1911. His truck production prospered beyond belief. In the late 20,s with a desire for increased truck speed, Charles started streamlining the trucks. He repowered with the faster 6 cylinder engines, air cushioned pneumatic tires. Simultaneously he marketed nation wide and later world wide through a dealer-distributing organization an innovation at that time. These dealerships led to company growth as exemplified by the production of more than 50,000 heavy duty military vehicles for our armies in World War Two. Diamond T was responsible for many advances in truck design. These include the fin and tube radiator, the adoption of 7 bearing 6 cylinder truck engines, 4 wheel hydraulic brakes, fully enclosed deluxe cabs, and hydraulic shock absorbers as standard equipment for heavy duty trucks. In 1958 Diamond T was purchased by White Motor Corporation and became a division of White. It continued to be a leader in truck design.
