Gaynon Iron works Inc. jamb sticker

Hi,
I purchased a 1976 F600 with Gaynon Iron works Inc. sticker on the door jamb. I tried researching the Co. listed as inactive. Did they finish chassis-cabs? I'd like to know a little more about them there are a couple pics of older trucks in front of what looks like their former building.

Truck was a former Asplundh use, or last paint job on it anyway.

See these?

Check this obit:

GAYNON - Gramo Pridgen Gaynon, 99, passed away at her residence Saturday, January 22, 2000. .... She was married for 42 years to Claude E. Gaynon until his death in 1959. After his death, she operated Gaynon Iron Works until she sold the business and retired in 1978.............

I would guess it was dissolved or absorbed into another business shortly thereafter.

There is also a second pic of that truck dif angle.

I see a Co filing listing in 1978 then dissolved in 1986, maybe new owners.

Is there a source for reproduction for these stickers?

I would guess not. Gaynon was probably a pretty small regional outfit. I didn't look at all the references you get when you google. Most of them are city or county or state bids that are made public, with Gaynon mentioned as bidding--I found one where they lost a school bus bid to a higher bid and there was a lawsuit from a taxpayer. That sort of thing doesn't tell you much about Gaynon, other than a date as a reference point. But I digress.

Buy a blank form and DIY. It's very clear from your pic that Gaynon was using a pre-printed sticker that they typed info on to.

Delivered today, needs some work it will keep me busy for awhile.


All the dump beds I have looked at of that era have either a single cylinder or twin inboard. I am curious if this one had a chipper box on it????

A copy of the original build sheet (as it left the assembly line) is available from martiauto.com

If the DSO code stamped on the Warranty Plate contains 6 numbers, FoMoCo sent the truck out after it left the assembly line to have the "back of cab" equipment installed.
