1912 Restored Little Giant Model D Has Withstood the Years

Posted by Jess Stoeckeler on

"Chicago Pneumatic produced “The Little Giant” which were built between 1911 and 1917 as rugged, mid-sized trucks that could be easily adapted for a wide array of industrial uses. The Model D could be a bus, stake-bed truck, or panel truck. Fewer than 10 are believed to exist in the world today."

"With one now restored to its former glory, the bright blue Little Giant bus sits on a pale-yellow chassis, with brass lamps and accessories, wood and leather throughout the 8-person cab, and gold lettering to match the period. The horizontally-opposed two-cylinder Chicago Pneumatic engine still runs well, with its two-speed transmission and a chain-driven axle boosted by an updated electric start."

"The bus was one of 75 chosen to take part in The Elegance at Hershey auto show. It won the People’s Choice award and the proceeds of the event went to the Museum and Library of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).”
