Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before shooting the vid!
1927 Indiana Motor Truck, 12459 miles. Please read caption for the link to sound version.
Nice!!! The audio has been muted on this clip, even after full credit was given to the Writer/Composer. Thought it would Boost interest in their sound tract, but no! I guess not! Anyway, here is the link to where you can hear the 1927 Indiana running. Without the 35 seconds of the "Indiana Jones" Theme that landed up muting the entire video.. Thanks...
1927 Indiana, model 127, This truck was put into storage in mid 1930's. It is original, unrestored, with 12459 miles. Not even broke in yet. It rides on Goodyear hard rubber tires, with the rear tire being wider than the front. We watch the Indiana earn its keep, doing what it was intended to do. It passes the camera with a load of dirt, and dumps it at the pit. We then watch an Oshkosh pass the Indiana on the dirt road. Indiana Truck Corp built trucks from 1910-1933 in Marion, IN. From 1928-1932, Indiana Trucks was controlled by Brockway. In 1932, White purchased Indiana Truck Corp for there good name and dependability.
Song is from the "Raiders of the Lost Ark" John Williams & the London Symphony. Label is PolyGram, Columbia Records 1981.
Up till Saturday, 8/13/2011 I have never seen or heard of Indiana Motor Trucks.
Video was taken at the HCEA National Pike Equipment & Steam Show, in Brownsville, PA. 8/13/2011
This is the OLDEST dump truck I ever filmed, and here is a link to the LARGEST dump truck I ever filmed,
In this video clip, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqaCsvqk8IA , we see a 1931 Chain drive Mack AC pass the Indiana...
Thanks for watching, Jackmp294.5™...

1919 Buick First start since 1952
This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings, and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly pictures.
