BC Vintage Truck Museum, Cloverdale, Surrey BC Canada
Ever Evolving and participating in many parades and festivals, watch for the trucks of the BC Transportation at various events around the lower Mainland and at the Newly finished Collection Building in Cloverdale, Surrey BC
Not all trucks in the collection are on display at anyone time due to space restrictions.
The newest Truck:
1957 Diamond T Model 921BN
It is generally believed that the museum's 1914 FWD is a WW1 unit. When the war ended there was a glut of vehicles and many were re purposed for for construction and utility work.
series was considered ultra-modern for its time. Canadian-built "A" models were manufactured in Hamilton, Ontario.
Like so many trucks that have travelled endless miles over endless highway, this 1936 Model 87 INDIANA carries many memories in its cab.
Bob King purchased this 1937 MACK EQ from Shell Oil of Vancouver in the late forties. King used the tractor for only a short time before it was put into storage.
"FARGO" was the trade name given to DODGE Trucks sold in Canada and other foreign markets. Purchased new by Bob King for Sea-Van Motor Freight in 1946, this FARGO hauled freight between Vancouver and Seattle until 1953 when it was put into storage at the West Pender warehouse.
1946 Maple Leaf
Chevrolet set a new standard with the Introduction of a new 5 cylinder overhead valve engine in 1929. The engine increased the carrying capacity, power and torque.
The first DODGE K52 AIRFLOW was produced in December 1934, ushering in a brief 'streamline' era in truck production. Between 1934 and 1940 249 AIRFLOW trucks were built - 29 of which were made for Standard Oil Company, based in New Jersey and California.
The Bryce System operation purchased the INTERNATIONAL D-40 in 1937 to haul on its Seattle-to-Vancouver run. Bob King acquired the tractor when he purchased the Bryce System's Sea-Van Motor Freight in 1946.
This 1941 INTERNATIONAL KS5 Cab-Over-Engine (COE) was put into service in October 1942 and operated as a cargo vehicle in Military District 11 (British Columbia).
Purchased new from Vancouver's Collier Motors over forty years ago, this 1946 CHEVROLET MAPLE LEAF is still virtually brand new with only 77 miles on the odometer!
