Donald started his own business over fifty years ago transporting US mail and the company is operated today by his two sons Allen and Randy Smith.

Donald and his wife Ann were very active in the restoration of antique trucks.

As a member of the Historical Truck Society and the Corbitt Preservation Association, They showcased several trucks from their antique collection which includes Corbitt, Mack, Autocar, Oren, and Internationals. Donald's favorite was the Corbitt trucks which originated in Henderson N.C. He had the largest collection of them in the world!

He has been nationally recognized in several publications for his many years of dedication to the trucking industry and for his unique collection of antique trucks.

 THE Corbitt Tall Boys are the most unusual and rare of them all. He HAD two of them!

Both of the Tall Boy trucks were designed by Guy M. Turner, who had nine of them specially built by Corbitt. The extra wide cab was constructed to hold four or five people. A full rigging crew in one truck which made it a true “crew cab”!

  The 1951 Corbitt 600 Series Tall Boy has a cut-down cab and is powered by a Cummins engine with a Mack transmission. It also has a direct accelerator and an air clutch. THE other Tall Boy is still its original height and has an 8-cylinder Gardner diesel engine from England. Each cylinder has its own cut-off valve so the driver can shut off some of the cylinders in order to use less fuel.

Very unique!







2nd auction will feature a collection of  rare corbitt trucks, parts AND memorabilia


AUTOCAR TRUCKS AND MACK TRUCKS!
