1944 Mack EQT


Truck Information:
When this 1944 Mack EQT was built, it was still wartime so there was no chrome. No chrome trim on the headlights, none on the grill, the bumper, windshield, mirrors or anything. Chrome was needed for engines and nobody wanted to be seen as gaudy during the war. The truck is a two-ton, three at most. It had a six-cylinder gas engine. It was probably a local delivery truck. The tractor on the back is a Fordson; they made tractors, and they also made crawler conversions. You could convert a regular wheeled tractor to a crawler. Fordson was the brand name for tractors made by Henry Ford & Son, Inc. from 1917 to 1920. They were to tractors like the Model T was to cars, very popular, reliable, low-priced, mass-produced and affordable for farmers, with dealers all over the country. They also made Fordson trucks at the same time. Ford was the only manufacturer to make cars, trucks and tractors simultaneously.
