Autocar Mondays – Special Edition

Welcome to a special edition of Autocar Mondays! There have been plenty of drool worthy trucks featured in this category over the years but today you have the chance to bring one home to your own garage.

Just last week I shared with you some photos of a 6×6 Autocar boom truck of Connecticut Foundations Corp. In that story I mentioned the truck was rumored to be up for sale but I was unable to confirm by finding any listings on Ebay, Craigslist, TruckPaper and so on. Plenty of you read this story and apparently did your own digging by calling CFC and inquiring about the Autocar. Your persistence has paid off and the truck is now listed up for bid on Ebay.

1973 Autocar Boom Truck

From the listing we now know a little more about the truck. Highlights include but are not limited to…

  • 16′ bed
  • 20,000lbs fronts, 65,000lbs rears
  • 6×6 (driver side front axle needs repaired/replaced for all wheel drive)
  • 290 Cummins
  • 13 speed overdrive transmission
  • Jake brake
  • 11 ton crane – 56′ side reach

One eye catching stat, this truck has been owned since new by CFC. A garaged, one owner, well cared for Autocar?! Bid and bid often! The auction closes at 5:50PM this Friday. A big thank you is owed to Joe Miller for sharing the listing with me along with these photos of the replacement truck to the Autocar, a 2003 Kenworth T800.
