1951 Sterling-White HD 2254

Engine Type:
150 Horsepower Cummins 6-Cylinder

Transmission Type:
4-Speed and 3-Speed

Truck Information:
In 1951 the Sterling Motor Truck Company was purchased by the White Motor Company. This 1951 Sterling-White Model HD 2254 is one of the early trucks made by the merged companies. It has a 150 HP Cummins engine as well as a four-speed and a three-speed transmission. This truck came from California and originally had a bed on back. It pulled a short trailer with a steerable front axle, which is very common even today in California for use on roads that are too curvy for a semi-trailer. The truck has a wood-framed cab and a two-part front windshield with crank opening. This is mostly late ‘40s styling but it did sell well. It is a totally basic truck. With only 150 HP, if you were crossing a mountain pass with a load you could probably have walked faster than this truck was driving. Top Speed: 50 MPH
