I just picked up a old farm truck at a local auction. The truck is a group of several trucks. Dodge, Mack, Chevrolet and 2 I have never heard of before. A Kelly truck and a Erskine. I found information on the Erskine but I cannot find anything about the Kelly truck. The frame and rear end is supposed to be from a Kelly truck. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.

I believe just the radiator, shroud and emblem are Erskine. Like you said made by Studebaker ending in 1930. The engine and the transmission that is attached to it are from a 1929 Chevrolet. Car or truck I don't know. The front end is from a Dodge Brothers car or truck, again not sure which one. I would guess a car. The frame and rear end are "Kelly" truck, not sure what year but 1916 to 1926 I think. The 4 speed brownie I am not sure what that came out of. There is also a third transmission. It is a T2C-1, again not sure what it is from. I am sure it is 1920's to 1930's. The second read end that was used for a belt pully system I have not been able to identify yet. I am sure it is 1920's also. One heck of a clump of vehicles they used for this farm truck.

Do you know the age (roughly) of your trucks? I believe it may have been Studebaker who made an Erskine car in the 1920s or1930s. Could yours be that old? Also could either of yours be a home made conversion from a car to a trucK? Just thinking...

looks like the Kelly truck is a Kelly-Springfield truck. Anyone have any information these trucks? The parts that are Kelly are the frame and rear end. Maybe also the Brownie. I need to remove it to see if there are any markings on the brownie. Now that I think about it the steering column might also be Kelly. It is almost straight up and down.
