1916 Menominee Motor Truck This truck is special to me because it was manufactured by the D.F. Poyer Company of Menominee, Michigan (established in 1909). D.F. Poyer was my great-grandfather. This truck is 1 of 6 known to still exist. "The Menominee" as it was marketed in the day has an open cab and stake bed with a capacity of 1500 lbs. This Model E features: Stromberg Carburetor with Hot Air Tube Continental 4-Cylinder Motor - 25 HP Bosch High-Tension Magneto Brown-Lipe Multiple Dry Disc Clutch Brown-Lipe Sliding Gear Transmission Timpken Full-Floating Helical Gear Rear Axle Titanic Springs Pneumatic Tires Exclusive Patented Radiator Shock Absorbers - Found Only on Menominee Trucks (pat. by G.A. Lindstrom). These isolate the radiator from the frame to reduce vibration.
