Pershing had his Packard shipped over to Europe during WW1 and it was his Staff Car. Here's some pictures. The first one is of his Dodge on a Army Train. Notice that it is a large touring car. The second and third pictures are of his Packards.

I get the Hemmings Classic Car mag monthly, love the history in this publication, truly a subscription worth the money to me.

This month, Decenbers issue, has a good article on this Cadillac: http://libertycadillac.com/gallery7/...klyArticle.pdf

I couldn't see anyone getting the answer without the words "Liberty Cadillac" in a search. Booth, take it away, you were the closest.

Our town library has Hemmings and I'll check out an issue if it's has an interesting article. I often used to stop at their Bennington, VT store when I commuted weekly to Maine to work - they have several great publications - and pick up copies.

When I finally looked it up I did see a reference to Pershing's Caddy and also his Locomobile. If you notice in the pictures I posted there were two Packards.
Here's a quote from the Ft. Bliss website( where I was stationed for a year and a half. Pershing commanded Ft. Bliss during the Mexican Wars. We missed each other by a couple of years.)
"In January 1914, John Pershing arrived in El Paso to take command of the Army 8th Brigade that was stationed at Fort Bliss. At the time, the Mexican Revolution was underway in Mexico, and the 8th Brigade had been assigned the task of securing the U.S.-Mexico border. In March 1915, under the command of General Frederick Funston, Pershing led the 8th Brigade on the failed 1916–1917 Punitive Expedition into Mexico in search of the outlaw Pancho Villa. General Pershing was assigned a 1915 Dodge Brothers touring car, serial number 3066. During this time, George S. Patton served as one of Pershing’s aides."
All in all I'd say Old Jack had his pick from a boat load of vehicles

Well it seems to be--all of them. my bad, I read the article in the Hemmings Classic Car and assumed this was his car of choice. It was interesting to me that Cadillac had the history in the wa.

Actually Dinger we were both wrong. Here's a picture that tells the whole story.

I've seen that pic before. Is it a cut down Mack?

I believe there is a "International" emblem on the hood. Not sure of its use though.

Yes it is a International but that's not the question. The question is what is the truck used for. There are tons of hints in that picture. Look around.
