Autocar Trucks Of The 1950S (At Work)

Autocar's roots go way back to the early 1900s, and it became known for tough and rugged trucks. When WWII came, very few trucks for civilian use were produced, and by the end, many trucks were worn out from constant use. After the war, civilian production began again in full force because of the lack of new trucks. In 1950, when Autocar introduced the new driver cab, the louver design was eliminated. The old style flat windshield sleeper cabs were used up until 1953 (the same year that Autocar was purchased by the White Motor Co.) when the new sleeper cab was introduced. Autocar became the top-of-the-line marque for White, and marketing focused primarily on specialized applications, such as construction, logging, mining, and oil industries. See the rest of the"World's Finest" helping do their part to revive America in the 1950s.
