5 Speed

Truck Information:
This 1933 White 643 was made in September 1933, in Cleveland, Ohio. It has a 215 inch wheelbase, which is the longest that the White Motor Company made at that time. Unlike many truck makers who manufactured trucks from parts purchased from other manufacturers, White made almost all of their own components. White made the model 5A overhead valve engine which produces 130 horse power. The transmission is a White model 10B with has five speeds. The front axle is a White model 9D. The rear axle is a White 13C with planetary hubs and a 10:1 ratio using 24 inch hubs. The tag axle is the only part of the drive train that was not White made, it is a Truktor tag axle. It also has a White made Metropolitan Couplex Cab. White made overhead valve engines for their large trucks from 1926 to 1939, but only a few hundred 5A engines were produced. The planetary rear axle using underslung springs was introduced in 1919 and continued to be White's heaviest rear axle in various design iterations until the late 1930s.
