While some truck makers drifted in the ocean of popular trends Autocar never strayed from what it made it a success. From day one they produced heavy duty trucks following a tried and true formula.
Here we see a 1973 Autocar DC9964T from the Abbonizio Contractors fleet of Deptford, NJ. Back in the day was the first new truck purchased by the young company and still hangs around to this very day in a backup role.
When new a Cummins NHC-250 could be found under the hood but was replaced via a Cummins exchange program in the late 1980’s to a NTC-400 Big Cam III. Keeping true to Autocars non plastic roots a 13 speed RoadRanger is the transmission of choice.
Sure looks like it’s ready to go at a moments notice! Thanks to Joe for finding yet another great addition to Autocar Mondays.
