Probably more than a few people saw the Brockway post from the other day and happened to notice the Autocar in the background. Hopefully they didn’t toss and turn in their sleep wondering if they would ever be able to see more of the truck. Here it is!
According the auction paper work this truck is a 1985 model. I’m not sure of the exact specs because I forgot to check the door jam for the detailed information. Ooops. You can be assured that this truck has a Cummins matted to an 18 speed. No shortage of gears here!
The former owner of this truck was the Town of Pendleton, NY. The rust is just starting to take hold in the usual places (above windshield) on this classic Autocar cab. The fenders are the next obvious trouble spot.
The Cummins in this rig loved to produce smoke. I left the door open while filming so you could hear that sweet diesel rumble. At one point the wind decided to change course and started to blow the exhaust right back into the cab. If you look closely you can see if drifting by the lense. The hood on this truck is very long. Toss a plow and a wing to the mix and I don’t know how any driver can accurately see what is going on…..and that is on a clear day! Just something to keep in mind the next time you “need” to pass a plow.
