The MASON ROAD KING SPEED TRUCK has nothing to do with MASON Motor Company / Waterloo / Iowa as I first thought. It was a very short lived company ( 1922 - 1925 ).

 The Road King was William Crapo Durants entry into the 1 - 1 1/2-ton truck market. With that he completed his offer of trucks. Smaller truck were sold under the name STAR ( see here ).

  1. By this time you may be aware that you have the Badge for a Mason Truck..1923-25. This was part of Durant Motors. The Mason truck factory was located in Flint, MI but some Mason were also put together at the Locomobile factory in Bridgeport CN Bob Smith historian DMAC
