Originally a railroad equipment manufacturer, the Kalamazoo Manufacturing Company was founded in 1883 but expanded into material vehicles with the Kalamazoo Speed Truck in the 40s. They produced many variants of the Speed Truck, including this 3 wheeler (with a cute aftermarket trailer).

Unfortunately, the Kalamazoo Manufacturing Company went out of business in the 1990s, but here’s a website dedicated to the company that lives on if you want more information or photos of the other products they made.

This specific Kalamazoo Speed Truck is a 3600 B, which means it has a four stroke Wisconsin twin engine that put out 18.2 horsepower, paired to a 3 speed transmission. It also has an interesting pull trailer so you’ll be able to get a lot of equipment around, albeit at around 10 miles per hour.
