Autocar dump coming this summer

It would be nice...but the original issue was in 1971 and as far as I know it has never been reissued, so they have to find the tooling for the mixer and the other parts if it still exists and get licensing for it.

12R24 or 14R24 tires would be great on this kit.

I'm planning on cases of this release.  This kit is a good one to build as an Autocar but also makes a great parts donor with the dump box, Rockwell 6-rod rear suspension, front float tires, HD front springs, and 6-spoke front/5-spoke rear wheels.

I have one of the previous reissues of this, and I was thinking that since the decals are for a fictional trucking company in Ardmore, PA, I should probably build this as a coal hauler.  I know in some areas of PA you can't drive down the street without seeing a coal truck.  Kind of like logging trucks in central Louisiana.

How does the "heated body" work? What is used to heat the dump body, which, I'm assuming, is meant to prevent the load from sticking to the body below a certain temperature?
