My father and I looked at an A7564 Autocar about 20 years ago. My father looked at the velvet ride and walked away. He was not a fan. It was cheap enough, but he hated the ride and parts were not available. Mike.

Never had Velvet Ride but my understanding is you want the truck to be loaded BOTH ways.

I drove a white 4000, 250 Cummins, RT 910, with "Velvet Ride"  for two winters hauling fuel oil north of Syracuse NY. Would beat you bad when empty, but with the rears locked it would go thru snow up your a$$.. NO wheel hop!!!!!!

I saw only one, it was a cabover. Today I would be afraid the old rubber would shear, and then where do you go for replacement?

I’ve heard of, but have never seen a truck setup with Velvet Ride suspension, looks interesting…
