    Larrabee Seed Six Hood Ornament

    Taken at the ATCA (Antique Truck Club of America) truck show held annually at the Macungie Memorial Park in Macungie, Pennsylvania. This emblem was seen on an antique fire truck outfitted by the Buffalo Fire Appliance Co. on a Larrabee chassis.

    From Pressconnects.com

    "“The fame of Binghamton is being carried to the far corners of the Earth by its products, and especially by the motor trucks which are made here.”

    In 1919, this quote appeared in The Binghamton Press with an announcement that the Larrabee-Deyo Motor Truck Co. had received large orders from New Zealand and Sweden. Business was booming for this local manufacturer, and with their trucks, “Made in Binghamton” was being heard around the world.

    Just four years earlier, the Larrabee-Deyo Motor Truck Co. was incorporated. Starting with four employees in the old Sturtevant-Larrabee plant on Charles Street, the new company would manufacture heavy-duty commercial motor trucks to meet a growing demand for replacing horse-drawn vehicles.

    One month after establishing the business, the Larrabee-Deyo “Standardized Motor Truck” was promoted at Binghamton’s annual Auto Show at the State Armory. The first production 2-ton model was completed the following March and sold to dairy farmer John Southee. As reported several years later, that original truck “still runs every day, bringing great loads of milk into town from Norwich.”

    The new company grew out of two successful Binghamton manufacturing concerns. Sturtevant-Larrabee had a reputation for manufacturing high-quality horse-drawn wagons, carriages and sleighs since the 1870s. The Deyo-Macey Engine Co. built gasoline engines in a plant on Washington Street. Now, with H.C. Larrabee as president and R.H. Deyo vice president and general manager, the new company was advertised as having “the advantage of the services of men experienced in both the construction of gas engines and in carriage building.”

    From the start, the goal was to produce a high-quality, durable truck, assembled from standard parts. It would be an assembly plant, and as Deyo said at the time, “we use what other specialists have made for us.”

    During the first full year of operation, the factory produced nearly 50 trucks. As orders increased, the company needed more room and moved to the former Deyo-Macey building on Washington Street. With many of its sales to New York City, production more than doubled the following year, and when the federal government placed a large order in 1918, production doubled again, requiring another plant to be built. The next year, the factory complex was enlarged again, now stretching from Washington to Water Street, and with a workforce of nearly 100 employees, up to 15 new trucks were rolling out of the plant each week.

    In 1923, nationally known cartoonist Johnny Gruelle came to town. The creator of Raggedy Ann and Andy characters, and the comic strip “Yapp’s Crossing,” Gruelle was in Binghamton to take delivery of a custom Larrabee Speed Six Wagon “Coach De Lux.” Outfitted with seats that converted into bunks, mahogany cupboards, window curtains and a short-wave radio, it would serve as a house on wheels for Gruelle and his family as they embarked on a highly publicized cross-country adventure. While waiting at Hotel Bennett for his vehicle to be completed, Gruelle spent time putting his impressions of Binghamton on paper in the form of a “Yapp’s Crossing” cartoon, complete with a caricature of his new Larrabee mobile home.

    Business peaked for the company in 1924. At that time, more space was needed — certainly to support production, but there was another reason. A new “Memorial Bridge” over the Chenango River was in the works, and part of the factory sat right over the site of a planned Spanish War Veteran Memorial at the easterly approach to the bridge. The City of Binghamton began condemnation proceedings to clear buildings from the area. Meanwhile, Larrabee-Deyo announced plans to move to Hillcrest, where it would lease space in what was then the Universal Can Factory, makers of Nestle ice cream.


    As it turned out, this would be the beginning of the end. Following a large order in 1925 to produce Majestic taxicabs for New York City, sales steadily declined. Production of trucks continued, but the company was losing money. At one point, a merger with other manufacturers and relocation to Poughkeepsie was announced, but the deal fell through.

    Finally, in 1930, the factory was taken over by a large firm, and in March of that year, the Larrabee-Deyo Co. was dissolved. Headlines proclaimed that the plant would be retained and “the new concern will continue to manufacture trucks at Hillcrest” — but it was not to last. In 1932, during the height of the Great Depression, production came to an end.

    Today, Larrabee-Deyo Motor trucks can still be found. Local moving and storage company owner James Kocak has a large collection of company memorabilia, as well as several trucks, including a 1923 fire truck. “My grandfather always had Larrabee trucks on his farm,” Kocak said. “As a boy, my father used to ride along as he picked up milk from farms and delivered it to Crowley’s.”

    A restored fire truck now sits in a garage of the Binghamton Fire Department. Originally purchased in 1929, it was finally retired in the mid-1960s. Later owned and restored by Jim VanHart, it was eventually donated by the VanHart family back to the fire department."

    MORGAN Front  Emblem

    Not only the regular French classic cars were here represented. Also exclusive British cars were here to be admired, like this curious Morgan.
    This British car maker is famous for its three-wheelers. In the first two decades after the founding year 1910 Morgan built 2-seat and 4-seat 3-wheelers to avoid tax on cars. These 3-wheelers were considered as motorcycles.

    This particular 3-wheeler looks brand new. In 2011 Morgan launched a new 3-Wheeler at the Geneva Motor show. Production started in beginning of 2012.
    The design refers very much to the pre-war 3-Wheeler., I would rather say it's a real copy.

    1983 cc 2 cylinder V-engine.
    550 kg.
    Production Morgan 3-Wheeler: 2012-present.
    I couldn't discover a license plate.

    Number seen: 1.

    This photographic registration of this classic car meeting wasn't planned. It was all just by accident that I discovered it.

    La Ferté-Saint-Aubin (Loiret, Fr.), Rue des Temples, July 30, 2017.
