This happens to be the ever popular DC model with a Cummins powerplant. As of right now I am unsure of the year and other relevant facts. Stay tuned….

It’s green. It’s an Autocar. It has construction style fenders. What more can you need? I give this truck the Daily Diesel Dose seal of approval!

Dump truck week continues tomorrow with a classic Western Star!

The Autocar is a 1973, DC9964 with a PT270 with a jake. The transmission is a TO955ALL riding on SUDD rears on Hendrickson rubber block suspention. 11:00/24’s all the way around with only 83,000 on it. When new it was owned by the Town of Adams MA. treatment plant and I bought it from a local slate company saving it from the blue wrench!
