There are the White branded version of those around, both as grain trucks and fire trucks, but I have never personally found a MM.

The Prairie Gold Rush mag for MM guy's had a show this summer?  and was one at it. I have pictures here somewhere in mag. I've seen small Whites like this, but first I ever heard of the MM connection also. Then these flyer's came up on epay and all kinds of things popping out on them. White bought MM and was just another way to advertise I guess. I bet those were small inside and noisy, cheapy and guy was glad to end his day of driving it!

You are correct Cat,as usual, :poke: ,but The MM and Oliver version are very scarce. I spent a week on the road in a slightly larger version of this WHITE,it was a day cab tractor and it was one of the most uncomfortable weeks that I have spent in a semi.

From what I can find, less than 4,000 produced. That includes White, Oliver, Reo, MM, and Diamond-T. That would put MM #'s below 500, IMO. Worse yet, they used big block Chrysler and Chevrolet engines, so good luck finding one with an intact drivetrain.

The cab should be good, they were plastic.

I had a chance to buy a Diamond T Trend with a 350 Chevy in it about 5-6 years ago in southern Iowa. I passed but its in good hands and safe from scrappers.
