While browsing ebay for old truck memorabilia I came across this slide of an Autocar tanker truck. I don’t know the exact make of the truck but it looks very similar to the a past Autocar Mondays truck, an A75T owned by Ray Arnold.
Ray’s truck was spec’d to haul the heavy loads while being a lightweight marvel. Looking at the two it’s hard to not see the shared features including bumper, fenders, and dual beam bumper mounted headlights. Both trucks even hauled similar liquefied natural gas loads.
This particular Autocar was still hauling with best of them when this photo was snapped in 1984. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a ’65 model like Ray’s but I suppose we may never know for sure.
