All of those fire extinguishers, are they preparing for the worst?

That is really cool! That grill dates that truck early 60s. Awesome!

And looks like it's set up to also do winter season snowplowing, by those extra brackets welded onto the bumper.

That's a neat looking old iron workhorse.

I didn’t notice that upon first glance... the eyes, they’re going too...

Interesting... if this truck were to strike a deer at 55mph, hard pressed to find a scratch. The deer would be would be hamburger. Quite a contrast to hitting same deer in a Plasticadia or a Swedish Mack.

And then on another look, I spotted the extra pair of auxiliary headlights up high, so it must be for a plow. I love that rounded bumper and the way it's all separate pieces, bolted together.

Those door mirrors! They look to me as being waaaaay out there. Need some extra long arms to adjust them.

The cab is narrower than what we have now. 2 adults of average size are sharing elbow space. I remember adjusting mirrors hanging out the open window and rechecking sight line sitting back in the seat. Passenger side was worse...

Made slip seating a real pain.

I should clarify that the pic is not mine. It's just an example of what I saw. The Autocar I saw, is probably a Farm Truck. So it's a good chance I'll see it again along my route. I'll try to get pic of it then. :)
