FWD Trucks 1910-1974 Photo Archive

Established in 1910, The Four Wheel Drive Auto Company was created to produce automobiles. The Battleship, America's "first successful four-wheel-drive automobile," was offered for sale in the company's 1911 sales catalog. However, the start of World War I in 1914 and the unsuccessful expedition to Mexico to capture Pancho Villa in 1916 led to a change and the production of over 24,000 Four Wheel Drive Model B trucks. Over the years, FWD produced a variety of specialized vehicles for road construction and maintenance, snow removal, utility construction, oil exploration and production, cement mixers, logging, and even school buses.
