Autocar Mondays – Rugged Red

With each passing day it is getting harder and harder to find a truck capable of working day in and day out. With ever increasing complex electrical needs and bloated emission control devices many find themselves seeking a truck that won’t let them down. But where to turn? The answer is obvious. Autocar!

Dustin sent in some photos of his 1995 Autocar ACL64 that has been no stranger to hard work since the day it left the factory floor. For many years this truck hauled dry cement along with performing dump trailer work. After changing hands to its second owner the truck found itself specializing in cranberry bog excavation.

While looking for “new” truck Dustin came across the ACL and knew right away that its ruggedness and durability would be a perfect fit for his business Dustin Doray Trucking. While still in a strong condition the truck received the care it needed to be a money maker for the next twenty years. Both the hood and cab were stripped bare and repainted a bright shade of red. Very little rust was found during this time with only the floor pans needing any work of note. The original heavy duty single frame was still in perfect shape along with the strong running 425 HP Cat under the hood. Being a heavy haul Autocar the transmission is none other than the bullet proof 8LL.

So now that you see the before and after photos what do you think? Looks pretty good to me! Thanks for the share Dustin!
