The first Model A Casco  built by Casco Motors Inc. appeared in 1922 and was a 1-ton speed truck powered by a four-cylinder engine and was offered with different bodies and a power hoist. 

By 1927 the company had been reorganized as the Sanford Automotive Corporation and was offering truck models in sizes ranging from 1-ton to 4-tons capacity. Six-cylinder models were introduced in 1928 and by 1929 the Model A had been increased in size to 1-1/2-tons.

The Casco suffered in the Depression and was finished by the end of 1930. Total lifetime production of the Casco was about 300 trucks.
