Government Surplus


GovSur1Sam Winer Motors, Inc. has been in the Government Surplus business since the end of WWII when Sam Winer was hired by a conglomerate of American truck dealers who had formed a partnership to buy U. S. Surplus war assets overseas. There was a huge demand for trucks as there had been practically no trucks built for civilian purposes during time of hostilities in WWII. Although there were trucks going to sold by the War Assets Administration in the continental U. S., there was an large quantity of logistical vehicles located in areas occupied the the U. S. Armed forces. His first assignment was in the Philippines where he loaded boatloads of trucks and shipped them back to California. Customers bought them immediately at areas near the L. A. docks and, ironically, some of his first customers were contractors building things for the government such as the Hanford WA atomic plant. After a few years, he decided to leave the buying group. He expanded his business by moving to our present location on the outskirts of Akron where he eventually acquired 48 acres. Over these years the company has sold almost every vehicle produced for the U. S. military during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam and we have become one of the largest government and civilian surplus dealers in the U. S. selling almost everything associated with truck components such as engines, axles, transmissions, tires, etc..
