Hi, Skinner.
Spot on - the first experimental D9 from 1946 - thankfully, they never went into production like that.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Great pictures of how I think a dealership should look like.


Deas   it just did not have the right background to look like a big machine. I was thinking D6 by the blade and just not expressing great mass. But then it was for sure a 6 cylinder, with the left side pony. But a very nice piece of history, thanks.

Hello Deas, I guess the designer of that D9 prototype was so upset when his ideas were dejected that he quit Caterpillar and went to work for Euclid...lol!

The old car in front of the Marysville dealership looks a lot like a '37 or '38 Ford Club Coupe.  Reminds me of my old ''41 Lincoln V-12. 
Keep the pictures a-commin!!
