I am looking for the first truck that was made under the "General Motors" monikor that Durant established in 1908. First it was cars, then trucks came on under the GM "company" i guess you could say.

GM bought the Rapid & Reliable independant manufacturers in 1908-1909- so this would be concurrent with the Buick truck (I have not been able to verify which make was bought which year- my sources disagree).
