| November/December 1984

Here is an appeal of a different sort from BOB STUBENRAUCH, Public Relations, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Akron, Ohio 44316-0001: 'The enclosed photo will give you an idea of a major project we have just completed, the recreation of the Goodyear Wingfoot Express. This 1917 Packard series E three-ton truck was dug from a frozen bog in Minnesota in 1983 and restored to original condition this year.

'Packard offered full electrical equipment on its 1917 line of trucks, and we have located everything but an authentic Packard self-starter. if you mention this appeal to your readers, we would be most appreciative. I'm sure there are many ruined trucks in those same old barns where you find tractors and gas engines, perhaps one has the self starter we need! (We believe a unit from a 1917 through 1920 Packard truck would work.)'

Four tractors owned by James Laufenberg, 1463 Hwy. D.D., Burlington, Wisconsin 53105. From left, the are: a 1926 18-36 G Hart-Parr, 1924 Cross motor Minneapolis 17-30, 1930 Rumely 6A and a 1927 40-62 Huber with a Stearns motor. In the background is a 24' Case grain separator.
