This is believed be one of only three surviving Wachusett trucks. The others are a retired fire truck, and a slighter later model in the Yaworski Collection at New Jersey.
This truck was part of the Earl Marhanka Collection from Dowagiac Michigan, who had a shed 70' x 1000' full of pre-1930 American trucks. At the auction of this collection it was bought by Lloyd Van Horn of Mason City Iowa, who had a truck museum. He sold it to the Hays Museum of Woodland California. Bill Richardson bought it from Hays in 2002.
Wachusett trucks were built in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, USA from 1922 to 1930.
