Default Dewald KL truck

This is a truck build by Charles Dewald in Boulogne-sur-Seine (Paris) between 1920-23. There is only one other truck of this make known to survive today. Dewald was the inventor of the hydraulic tipper and made several improvements to the telescopic cylinder (see google patents). We found it last year, sitting in the water after a flooding of the Seine river. It has been modified in 1941, the modifications included the fitting of a wood gas generator and (I think) boring the engine to increase volume and installing pneumatic rear tyres. It was originally fitted with wooden rears with cushion. I'll keep you updated once the restoration has begun.

What a great find! The truck appears to be in very good condition for its age. Good luck with it. Steve
