Freightliner Trucks: 1937-1981 Photo Archive

Unable to find a manufacturer to build his new design, Leland James, the founder of Consolidated Freightways, founded what would become Freightliner. Photographs handpicked from the Freightliner Corporate Archives, combined with in-depth captions, document Freightliner trucks from those first trucks up to its partnership with Daimler Chrysler.  


Through the years Freighliners trucks brought many innovations including the all-aluminum cab, the integrated aluminum sleeper compartment and the full 90 degree tilt cab, all documented in the book.
