Autocar Mondays – Endless Sumer

Usually around this time of the year I start to mourn the end of truck shows and the warm weather. Not this year. The shows are still going on and the temperatures have been in the high 70’s and low 80’s for days now. We’re running a good 15 to 20 above average for this time of year. Fortunately we have some cool Autocars to look at from a show that took place in Virginia a few weeks back.

This 63 DC is one of my favorite styles of Autocar truck. The long rounded hood and front grill pair perfectly with the square pit style fenders. Exterior oil filters and large air cleaner suggest big power underneath the faded sheet metal.

Not to far down the row a 70 DC shows off a different take on tough with aluminium rims front and back, fiberglass fenders and a presumably aluminium frame as well. I’m just adlibing here but this truck seems to have more of a highway hauler look to it than it’s more vocational style brother up top.

Thanks to Jack for sending in these shots from the Somerset Steam and Gas pasture party. A few other trucks were there as well and we’ll take a look at those in the coming days.
