No. 1
Tomahawk's first gasoline powered truck was "Old Maude," a 1917 4-cylinder Republic ladder truck with an open cab design. This truck came with hard rubber tires designed for smooth pavement. It was taken to the Tomahawk Steel & Iron Works and converted to pneumatic tires, which were better suited to the teeth-rattling roads it was being run on.
