White Freightliner

The agreement between Freightliner Corp and the White Motor Co, in which White marketed Freightliner trucks under the brand name "White Freightliner" ended in 1974.
Therefore to see a White Freightliner on the road 40 years later came as a bit of a shock this morning.

T.J.Mills Express of Lower Sackville, NS had this truck at the Halterm container terminal today, bearing a White Freightliner badge.  How much of the truck aside from the cab dates from 1974 would be interesting to know. Freightliner cabs were built of riveted aluminum, and thus light weight and long lived.
