With the re-release of the AMT A64B Autocar, I thought that I would post a few reference pictures of one the I saw this week. There are more on my Flickr page if you just click on one of the photos.

Yes sir Jim, and did you notice the engine tag? I had never heard of an N927 Cummins. This one has aluminum frame rails as well.

I didn't notice that.  Can't say as I've heard of an N927 either.  So with aluminum frame rails I've guessing that this wasn't spec'd out as a vocational truck.

Apparently (after some research), the Cummins N927 as called the Super 250.  Basically, it's a NH250 Cummins 250 with a 927 cid instead of the 855 cid.

I am unable to open any of the posted links. All I get is a message stating that the Flicker line cannot found.

Flickr started charging for accounts with over 1000 pictures so I had to delete some. I'll re-post them here.

Neat old brute. What is the shaft that pokes out the rear above the right taillight?

I'm not sure Pat. It is a P.T.O. of some type.

Yeah, that is a typical PTO splined shaft..............the question of the day is, why and what for?

Beautiful series of reference photos with a trained eye for important details.  Looks like the weathering was also considered.

IIRC it was used to unload dry bulk tankers.

Very cool, I never knew that they used Aluminum for the frames. Seems like that would be expensive and lead to problems in salty areas.
