General Equipment related to General Electric?

| September 2009

We bought an old running gear from a guy who got it as part of a collection of old metal from an auction. It has General Electric logos on the three remaining hubcaps. An older relative said there once was a General Equipment company, but he didn’t believe it had a link to GE. This is clearly the same logo – there would have to be some sort of link. Does anyone have any information that would explain some history about this and the possible age? The wheels appear to be bluish-green – it might be the original color. The guy we bought it from thought it might be from the 1930s or ’40s. Its unusual hubcaps saved it from the scrapyard. Any help would be appreciated.
