1907 Chase truck. Featuring a three-cylinder, two-cycle engine and a tailgate and was originally used for hauling. This vehicle was made by the Chase Motor Truck Company of Syracuse, New York. When it had outlived its career as a utility vehicle, a surrey top was added and it was used primarily in parades. And while it hasn't been started in a long time, it was in running condition when the Museum acquired it from the Stoker Collection.
The brassplate located on the inside dash board shows: Atwater Kent MFG Works, Philadelphia, PA, REIS D Pat. D NOve 22, 1904, PAT Pnding USA and Foreign Countries. Another plate with the information: Chase Motor Truck Co., Syracuse, N. Y., Type D. No. 32.
If the serial number 32 is correct, then that makes the Chase Model D one of the earliest Chase vehicles. That would make it a 1909 or earlier model.
The Chase Model D truck was the middle model in the Chase truck line. It had a 1500 pound load capacity and was more of a light duty delivery truck.
