Above on the page there're some Service PDF Manuals, Electric Wiring Diagrams & Fault Codes DTC for STERLING Trucks.
In October 1997, STERLING TRUCK CORPORATION, the world's youngest but already quite reputable manufacturer of heavy trucks, was created in the United States in October, which became the final chord in the struggle of enthusiasts to preserve the well-known Sterling brand.
There are five companies with this name in total.
Little is known about the first of them (only that it produced several trucks with a base length of 88 inches and lasted only two years (1909-1910)).
For the second, this name was almost his own, the name was given to her by the founder William Sternberg (in 1907-1915 he had a company for the production of trucks under his own name).
Unlike the first, the second firm existed much longer (1916-1953), and it was she who was remembered.
In 1951, Sterling Trucks merged (before 1953, some models were still produced only under the Sterling Trucks brand) with the slightly larger White trucks company, forming the Sterling-White truck company.
Gradually (in 1957), the Sterling name withdrew from the company's lineup and remained in oblivion until 1973, when it was transferred to a small company from Kansas City, which specialized in the production of automobile cranes and emergency tractors.
But even there, the Sterling brand did not last long, until 1982.
As you know, this name was given to the former Ford cargo department, which was sold to the Freightliner Trucks company (DaimlerChrysler concern) at the end of 1997.
The production of all trucks was transferred to Canada.
They now carry the silver Sterling badge, except for the Cargo model, which by agreement will be produced by Freightliner, but sold under two brands - Ford and Sterling.
It appeared as a result of the acquisition by Freightliner of the cargo division of Ford Corporation, renamed Sterling.
Large investments by the DaimlerChrysler Corporation, which includes both companies, made it possible in just two or three years to restore the production of the medium cabover truck range of Cargo 4x2 / 6x4 at Sterling, to begin production of Condor low-frame chassis of the Canadian branch of Freightliner, to significantly modernize and expand the range inherited from Ford truck series L and A, which once bore the names of Louisville and Aeromax.
Since 2000, these series have been offered with a very striking front cladding.
The former range L is called Acterra, and one of the most expensive and comfortable is the new mainline tractor Silver Star with an engine power of up to 500 hp, air suspension for road trains with a gross weight of up to 62.6 tons
