1930s Era Mack BG Van Truck

1930s Era Mack BG Van Truck

Heavy Duty Autocar On-Off Highway Dump Truck

Heavy Duty Autocar On-Off Highway Dump Truck

In the mid 1950s Autocar offered rugged "pit fenders" for their on-off road contractor's trucks. You'll also notice the belly pan guard to protect the engine. Toward the end of the 1950s a more efficient higher capacity radiator was an option. This was mounted outside outside the sheet metal and is generally referred to as a "hard nose" either on Autocars or Macks

The body here is a Marion 13 foot long 12 yard capacity part number 26288, the truck is number 95130.

Typical 1950s era Van Trailer

Here's a typical mid 1950s rig used in the Eastern states. The trailer is Sheepscot number 95059, a 35 foot vertical rib crop center type to which a refer unit has been added.

The truck has a short wheelbase (141”) for the best maneuverability and least weight. It is part number 95126 modeled for a DC-97T. It has saddle type fuel tanks and sanders. Notice the license plates for interstate travel 55 years ago.

Dump trailer with Construction Debris

Dump trailer with Construction Debris

We currently make two dump trailers, a 16 and a 28 yard. The larger one is shown here hooked on to an Autocar DC10364 heavy duty tractor. We've been selling this trailer for years as a plaster casting but now we're molding it out of urethane so it's easy to cut some of the load out and put in construction debris.
The dump trailer is kit number 95078, the truck is 95126

Kit No. 95051 Oil Field Flat trailer

Kit No. 95051 Oil Field Flat trailer

Here's a high flat trailer with a Cat D-8 (a GHQ model). This was often loaded by dropping the front of the trailer to the ground, running the equipment onto the trailer bed, and then using the tractor's winch to pull the trailer back up to the truck's fifth wheel. During the hook-up the load was usually moved to the rear so most of the weight was over the trailer tires and then moved forward for the proper weight distribution.

35 ton Rogers Removable Gooseneck Lowbed Trailer

35 ton Rogers Removable Gooseneck Lowbed Trailer

This is a modified kit 95046 60 ton trailer, the third axle has been removed as was very typical for the late 50s and 1960s. It is being pulled by a C-100 Autocar, a large tractor for the late 1940s.

50 ton Removable Gooseneck Rogers Lowbed

50 ton Removable Gooseneck Rogers Lowbed

This three axle lowbed is rated at 50 tons because it has smaller tires (10.00-15) than the kit number 95046 (11.00-20). Smaller tires reduce the carrying capacity as well as the smaller brakes reducing the safety. This is kit 95047, metal frame so the trailer will not bend or sag over time and styrene parts. The tractor is kit number 95111, an International F-230-D, the heaviest of the line in 1959.
