Chrysler trucks

Tim O'Connor

Besides frequent application to General American box cars I
just noticed that first box car page of the 1953 CBC has a
photo of DL&W 10039, a 1950 Magor built 40' box car -- and
what do you know? Chrysler trucks! This is the earliest car
I've seen with these trucks.

There's a good photo of the plain bearing Chrysler FR-5E on
page 977 of the 1953 CBC too, and a drawing for the roller
bearing version on page 981.

Anyone ever compiled a list of all the cars equipped with the
Chrysler-patent trucks?
