Sometimes you can only guess about the specifics of a truck found rotting along a country back road. The first question that usually comes to mind is why would anyone let this fine machine decay to such a lowly state. After that, you can start wondering about the specific model, the powertrain, and the back story.
While I have no answers for you on most of these fronts it does appear that this truck once belonged to Morris Kreitz and Sons, INC of Reading, PA. At one point this Autocar was probably one of their front line heavy haul trucks, an obvious clue to such a past being still attached neck of a gooseneck trailer.
Who knows what the future holds for this old truck. Let us be thankful that it still exists at all!
