This 1936 Ford 1½
Ton was originally a delivery truck for Merrimack Farmers Exchange Company.
They were a grain company that had stores in various communities around
New Hampshire. This particular truck was one of the trucks based at the
grain mill in Concord, New Hampshire and hauled from there to the various
stores. Those trucks were outfitted with Eaton manual shift 2 speed rear
axles and also a booster on the mechanical brakes. This truck today still
has those options and they work perfectly. After its life as a grain delivery
truck, the unit became a Fire truck for the Town of Dunbarton, NH. It saw
Fire service duty until about 1966 or 1967.
