Brothers Al and George Coleman created Coleman Motors in 1922 as a holding company with the intent of acquiring financial control of Plains Iron Works and the Plains Truck and Harleigh Holmes moved the plant back to Littleton.
| The Coleman Motor Company (Littleton, CO) produced the Model G-55A 4x4 chassis with a Buda 6 cyl. engine as the platform for a Quick-Way Truck Shovel Co. (Denver, CO) Model E crane. The combined 4x4 truck crane vehicle was used during World War II by engineering units for bridging, construction and other purposes.
In 1949 , with the rapid emergence of the Cold War, the United States Air Force (USAF) rushed out the full deployment of the truly revolutionary and simply huge, "nuclear-capable" B-36 Convair "Peacemaker" VH ("Very Heavy") Strategic Bomber, and with a fully-loaded weight of 262,500 lbs, it was very clear that a much more robust and agile aircraft towing tractor would be very quickly needed to efficiently manuever this simply huge new bomber while on the ground.
