I believe that most of those were built by Ross, who also built fork lifts, but Ross was bought out by Clark around 1960 (?). In any event--that looks a little more sleek than the ones that I used to see in Philadelphia, when I was growing up . Ross stuff was built RUGGED and as one guy who also worked at the place that had two Ross forklifts that I rebuilt and serviced , described them they "looked like something that the Japs left on some South sea island in the 'thirties". I beam and heavy angle. I used to lift 22000 lbs, with extra homemade counterweight on the 18000 Lb model.
Always wanted to ride through the load space of an empty one traveling down a straight street when I was riding a motorcycle, but the few times that the opportunity arose--I chickened out. Unusual for me, back then. Stupid youth----
