White Super Power Ore Truck

© 2003 Doug Welykholowa
This derelict mining truck, with its steel bed removed, was parked beside an old pink hotel on Highway 3, just east of the Sparwood, BC, coal mines. White trucks used this model as the basis for dozens of different types of heavy haulers from the late 1930s to the early '50s, including military vehicles during World War II.
