The Diamond T Motor Car Company, formed by Charles Tilt in 1905, custom built passenger cars by hand in the rear of a small one-story garage in Chicago the first 6 years of operation.
In 1911, Diamond T discontinued its passenger line and switched exclusively to building trucks. Diamond T was responsible for many advances in truck design; among these were a faster six cylinder engine and air cushioned pneumatic tires.
During World War II, Diamond T produced more than 50,000 heavy duty military vehicles for our armies. Another American Classic design was Diamond T’s fire trucks.
