Nice picture Doug. Thanks for sharing!

Another thing to like about Autocar and other brands that used it is the Driver's Cab that was developed. Very nice cab in my opinion.

I've had alotta Mack camel backs and they are the only way to go when you have to go back in the woods and on the highway. Easy to rebush when needed too, do it yourself no need to pay a spring shop. JMHO

I hear you Rob.

There are plenty of days where a camelback is not a cushy ride....not even close.

Years ago talked to a fellow in Vineland, NJ that swore that Chalmers suspension was the only way to go with a dump truck.

I've actually driven an old IH with Chalmers and didn't think it articulated as well in greasy type mud? I'm no expert by far and that's been about 30 years, (or so) ago.

Growing up in Texas there were a few Macks around but the mainstay was the Autocars as far as heavy duty trucks go. I think the oil fields had a lot to do with that. In the fifties on the highways you saw a lot of IH's, GMCs, Whites, Fords, Autocars, also it was fairly common to see Petes and KWs, then there were the Macks too but not as many as the other makes.

On Hendrickson? You will have to keep a load in the body all the time. Ready the kidney belt!


That's about as "bulletproof" as it gets besides "camelback".

I'm prolly about as die hard Mack as the best of them, but someday I'll have an Autocar dumper with a Detroit and air shift 4X4 on Hendrickson.

Got to get something I already own finished first though.......
