Autocar Mondays – Strong Foundation

The true strength of any good building begins with its foundation. The same is true with trucks. Therefore It only makes sense that Connecticut Foundations Corp chose an Autocar for assisting them in the construction of the strongest foundations in the industry.

I wish I could tell you more about the specs of this truck but I don’t have them. This has been a problem with recent editions of Autocar Mondays that I hope to resolve soon. In the mean time we can only speculate at age, engine, trans, etc.

Digging through the CFC photo page you’ll find a few more shots of this truck. One of the better ones can be seen here. Rumor has it that this truck was recently replaced by a newer unit and might be up for sale soon. It seems to be one hell of a machine and in great condition. A big thank you to Bryan for sharing these photos.

    Nice. I wonder if they bought this truck new? Or could it be one of those ex-Clayton Block trucks that found a new life and a lot more chrome?
