We have in our showroom a 1935 International Harvester C-35 Armored Truck that has been painstakingly restored over the past few years and has one hell of a story accompanying it. We couldn’t be more excited to be part of the preservation of this incredible vehicle! This truck was custom built for the Little Rock Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis by the John C. Dix Company of Memphis. Tennessee. It is our understanding that this was the first and only armored truck built by Dix. This late 1935 International C-35 chassis was state-of-the-art. offering the FAB-3 engine: a 241 cubic inch. overhead-valve six cylinder. boasting 27 horsepower. mated to a 4-speed gearbox with hydraulic brakes. The truck weighs approximately 9. 00 lbs. measuring 7’9″ tall. 16’11” long and 6′ wide; the body only being 4’7″ wide. The armored body is riveted 3/16″ boiler plate with a solid oak interior; the truck has a tremendous amount of hand-forged “blacksmith’s” work. Of the five plates for the brass gun ports. no two are alike. When looking at the truck. please note the hand-forged angle on the corners and rear fender mounts; an excellent example of blacksmithing from this time period. It goes without saying that all the glass mounted in this beast is bulletproof and at least 1. 5-2″ thick. This truck began service at the Little Rock Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis on April 30th. 1936. replacing a 1928 Ford. and remained in service for 11 years – through World War II. It transported money between the Federal Reserve Bank. the U. S. Post Office. the Railroad Depot and the major Little Rock banks. Two former employees were located and interviewed regarding their having driven the truck. Both gentlemen had driven this truck in the mid 1940’s. They both described going by the “Ice House” and picking up a block of ice and placing it in a wash tub in the back to help stay cool during the summer months. They explained that keeping rags in the tub to wipe their faces off helped as they rode in the back. After its tenure with the Federal Reserve Bank. the truck was replaced with a 1947 Diamond-T armored truck and was transferred to the U. S. Postal Service. The truck transported registered mail and money. It’s believed the truck was retired in the late 1950’s and sold as surplus property. This truck re-appeared later in an article in the Arkansas Gazette newspaper. dated September 24. 1974. According to the article. Mr. Nelson Mears of Mabelvale. Arkansas purchased the truck for $300 and assumed it to be a 1928 U. S. Mail truck. In the late 1980’s. Mr. Woody Cordell. also of Mablevale. purchased the truck from Mears in hopes of restoring it. Due to ill health. Cordell was unable to do so. The truck was obtained from Cordell in 1991 by Frank and Karen Howell. The Howell’s knew that in order to restore the truck properly. more information was needed on both the mechanics of the truck. and more importantly. the truck’s history. The research began with the truck’s manufacturer. the John C. Dix Company of Memphis. Tennessee. According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal newspaper. June 7. 1940. the Dix Company was closing its doors after 60 years of service following a violent labor dispute. and the assets were being liquidated. An article in the Memphis Press-Scimitar newspaper. June 15. 1940. corroborated this information. Contact was then made with the Jay Tom Moore family. Moore. a former Dix employee. left the company after the construction of the C-35 was complete. Mr. Moore later went on to open a specialty shop in Memphis for armored car construction and became the largest manufacturer of armored cars in the country! Moore’s sons. Rick and Terry. were able to provide the name of Mr. Jack Colter. an elderly Memphis resident who. according to the Moore’s. actually helped Jay Tom Moore. as Dix employees. build the C-35 truck. Mr. Colter was contacted by telephone. He then told the “story” of the C-35 armored truck. He said as a Dix employee at the age of 18. he was in charge of installing the wood interior in the C-35. He also said that two gentlemen with the last names of Thompson and Fisher were in charge of the steel work on the truck while Jay Tom Moore. himself. was in charge of upholstery. Colter distinctly remembered the truck and how difficult it was to build. The truck underwent a complete frame-off restoration in 1991. involving over 2. 00 hours of labor! Later on in 2003. the truck was repainted and both the engine and transmission were rebuilt by Mr. Dick “Pappy” Vance. the International Harvester expert. of Hannibal. Missouri. In 2005. Bruce Burrow purchased the truck from representatives of the Howell Family and restored it yet again to the condition that you see it in today. As mentioned before. this truck is massive. The truck stands tall at 7’9″ tall. 16’11” long and 6′ wide while weighing in at a whopping 9. 00 lbs. The riveted 3/16″ boiler plate is finished with dark blue paint that looks stunning and very official. Even the sides have been properly repainted with the Little Rock Branch Federal Reserve Bank information. There is a little bit of chrome on the truck and it looks great while accenting the dark paint. This is truly a spectacular truck and a fine piece of American history. Inside. the interior has been finished with solid oak and it looks absolutely stunning. The rear of the vehicle is a large compartment two benches on either side where the money and parcels were transported. This is also where the large wash tub held the large ice cube to keep the workers cool during the long summer drives transporting Federal goods. The dashboard is finished to match the exterior and looks great while housing period correct gauges. The C-35 is powered by the state-of-the-art 241ci FAB-3 overhead valve. six cylinder engine that runs great. This engine is capable of producing upwards of 27 horsepower. Mated to the engine is a hardy 4-speed gearbox. shifted through the floor. The engine and transmission were rebuilt to high quality standards by the International Harvester expert himself. Mr. Dick “Pappy” Vance. It should be noted that the horn and wipers are currently inoperable. It is also equipped with hydraulic brakes. This truck is indeed a beauty; a most unusual and rare addition for any private collection or museum. More importantly. at a time in our country’s history. the Great Depression and notorious bank robbers pillaging through the Midwest. the U. S. Government commissioned this “War Wagon” in defense of our prosperity. This truck boasts a proud history of service to her country; and we are proud to be part of its preservation. The truck comes with a large picture frame with the complete story of the vehicle. some newspaper articles and classic photos of the truck. The VIN is 15467 and the mileage currently shows 39. 29.
