NOBLE TRUCK

Noble Motor Truck Co. (1917-1931)

Kendallville, Indiana


This is a Noble truck radiator emblem (date unknown)     natm
Size: 172mm wide 75mm high 

The Noble was a conventional assembled truck and, at times over the life of the Noble, was offered in eight models ranging in capacity from 1-ton to 5-tons. From 1921, all Noble trucks were powered by six-cylinder Buda engines.

The Noble did not survive the Great Depression and it was all over by 1931.

The Noble radiator emblem shown above was also used as a nameplate attached to both sides of the hood, see below:

The heavier Noble trucks had the Noble name embossed in the radiator tank top and a Noble nameplate on the sides of the radiator, see example below:
