The AACO military connection explains why they took such acrobatics to get in and out of.

They just made 'em like an RL Bedford, except with sharp edges.....

Hamish, Was this T line you speak of any relation to Diamond T?? Being bought out by IH in 1979 they must be no relation to the T Line of Harrisburg PA which was founded by some of the old Osterman Diamond REO Giant people in the early 2000's.

t line series acco has no connection with diamond t
first    of them were built for the army here  by ihc oz 
to fill a contract for 4x4 and 6x6 transporters
they[ ihc] them put them into civilian use as 2x4
they were originally AACO   which stood for Australian A series  Cab Over
next was C series hence ACCO

I remember when I was a kid (early 70's) one of Dad's buddies had an ACCO with a 6 71 and N75's that the local IH dealership installed at new.
He wanted an 8V71 but they wouldn't do it. The 6 was better than the 555 that came in it.
One of the local guys had an 8X4 with a 555 and a baby 13 that he pulled a 3 axle dog with, too. 900 bushels was slow going.

When the T lines came out with the NTC290's, they were just about king of the road.

Dan I am pretty sure in the later model ones big bore Cummins ere offered. Grenfell,hamish orHayseed will know for sure. I think they would have made a good local to over night delivery tractor low cab easy entry single sleeper and Cummins power.


Tilt cab ACCOs have been built since 1972 and they're still building them, although badged Iveco now. Biggest engine offered was the Cummins V903 in ACCO 3070 A and B series. In the 46 years or so that they have made them they have used-
Gas-IHC-V345, V392
Diesel-IHC-D358, DT466C, 530E?, DV550B, D170-Perkins-6.354, T6.354.4, Phaser-Cummins-V555, VT190, V903, C series-8.3L, ISC, ISL?

In 1979 IHC brought out the T Line built on a U.S. S Line chassis with a larger, modified ACCO cab. T Lines used IH DT466B, Cummins L10, 855-from NTC230 up to NTC444, I think. Atkinson 4870 model was a T Line with Atkinson badging and plusher cab interior-replaced fibreglass cab 3870 model. Atkinsons offered 855 Cummins and Detroit 6V92 and 8V92 series engines.

Those cabs appear quite slick !   I got a spec sheet on one at a swap meet 30 years ago and gave a copy to local IH sales mgr.  Told him it was a new model to be released by IH.
Then he spotted driver on left side..........there goes my story .

I was disappointed that only small engines were offered...........like 345, 392 gas , and maybe DV 550.
