Truck Information:
This is a 1953 Autocar DC-75; it was a very popular model. Autocar is the oldest surviving motor vehicle brand in the Western Hemisphere. The company is now owned by GVW Group, and builds three models of custom-engineered, heavy-duty trucks. They made some of the biggest trucks on and off the road. Some from the '50s and '60s were absolutely huge and wouldn't even fit on the road; they were made for hauling oversized loads. Autocar would make any size truck you wanted, totally custom built. The box on the passenger side of the hood is a Farr air filter. The truck has been modified; it had a smaller engine from the factory. The transmission has also been replaced from the original 9-speed to a 13-speed. It has a Peterbilt air leak suspension under it for a better ride. The sleeper has also been removed and there are seats back there. We used this truck for a long time to haul our antique trucks to show and retrieve new ones. This particular truck was made in Exton, Pennsylvania. Top Speed: 100+ MPH
