Kenworth Truck Pictures - Page 2
In 1924, Kenworth sold 80 trucks and production a year later neared two trucks per week. Even in those early years, Kenworth was dedicated to the custom truck.
Under the guidance of Vernon Smith, a master Kenworth salesman responsible for building sales at that time, the custom truck became the hallmark for Kenworth.
Good fortune came to Kenworth in 1933 when it became the first American truck manufacturer to install diesel engines as standard equipment. It was a major development
that allowed Kenworth to develop a powerful and durable line of diesel trucks.
