Oh man, what is the red truck and trailer? I've never seen such a beautiful truck. Sounds like you had a good time.

the red truck was custom made for the Labatt's Beer company in 1936 by White Motor Campany . There were only 12 made for the canadian beer company ... All the cab and trailer is made of wood and aluminum .... A real cool truck . It took Labatt's 8 years to rebuild one .. this is the only one left

Harry,
Good pics! Do you have any info on the blue truck? To me the red rig looks very futuristic for 1936. If I had to guess, I would have said that it was early 50's. Thanks for posting them.

Hey Tom ... The Keg truck is a 1919 White ... I have to say they are both awesome trucks ... Both are kept in London Ontario ( where I live ) If you google "labatt's antique trucks" you will find several sites that have a discription of both trucks .... They could not find the original 1936 cab for the tractor and they used a 1944 white chassis ... They had to basically make everything by hand .. I used to ride my bicycle past one of the old trailers in a gravel pit just outside of London in the mid sixties ... they were using it for storage ... that is the same trailer that Labatt's restored .... cool huh

I got to sit in the driver's seat back in 1985 when I was 10 years old. Apparently high socks were cool then.
