I know Daily Diesel Dose has a few visitors that are just as nuts over planes as they are trucks. This one is for you!
Joining the collection of Autocar truck scans is this 50’s era DC model with integral sleeper. Owned by the Lockheed-Georgia Company this Autocar was setup as a fire truck. Probably a foam unit. I wonder where it is today?
Any ideas on the model of the jet in the background?
Appears to be an old Boeing C-141 Starlifter. The predecessor to the current Boeing C-17.
Actually, after looking closely at the info on this pic I noticed the 54995 in the
lower right corner. That is the VIN on my truck. I then called the previous owner who told me my truck had a sleeper cab when it was new! So the truck
in this pic is my truck!!!! Now I need to find a sleeper cab to restore it to its original configuration.
Awesome! I can provide a higher resolution scan of this photo if you would like. Just let me know.
I actually own the daycab brother of this same truck. I heard it was a foam unit from lockheed. Im currently restoring the truck to it’s original look. Today the truck only has 6358 miles on it! I would love to find some pics of the daycab.
Awesome, I would love to see more. The ATHS is in the process of uploading their Autocar archive to the web. They may have photos of your truck.
