I just picked up a old farm truck at a local auction. The truck is a group of several trucks. Dodge, Mack, Chevrolet and 2 I have never heard of before. A Kelly truck and a Erskine. I found information on the Erskine but I cannot find anything about the Kelly truck. The frame and rear end is supposed to be from a Kelly truck. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.

looks like the Kelly truck is a Kelly-Springfield truck. Anyone have any information these trucks? The parts that are Kelly are the frame and rear end. Maybe also the Brownie. I need to remove it to see if there are any markings on the brownie. Now that I think about it the steering column might also be Kelly. It is almost straight up and down.

Do you know the age (roughly) of your trucks? I believe it may have been Studebaker who made an Erskine car in the 1920s or1930s. Could yours be that old? Also could either of yours be a home made conversion from a car to a trucK? Just thinking...

I believe just the radiator, shroud and emblem are Erskine. Like you said made by Studebaker ending in 1930. The engine and the transmission that is attached to it are from a 1929 Chevrolet. Car or truck I don't know. The front end is from a Dodge Brothers car or truck, again not sure which one. I would guess a car. The frame and rear end are "Kelly" truck, not sure what year but 1916 to 1926 I think. The 4 speed brownie I am not sure what that came out of. There is also a third transmission. It is a T2C-1, again not sure what it is from. I am sure it is 1920's to 1930's. The second read end that was used for a belt pully system I have not been able to identify yet. I am sure it is 1920's also. One heck of a clump of vehicles they used for this farm truck.

How's your research so far? My buddy's uncle might have some good info about Erskine stuff as he mentioned about these old rigs before. I'll come over tomorrow to help my buddy install the brake kit and 20 inch niche wheels on his current truck project. He's uncle will be there and my ask a few question about Erskine and Kelly trucks.

At this time I have put it on hold for the winter. I am treating the tranny and motor with Kroil to hopefully be able to get them apart someday.
