N.O.S.

Another Autocar U7144T saved

Recommended Posts

Well here it is again, having recently been awakened from a deep slumber in France, putting up a determined - but ultimately futile - fight before heading to England for restoration.

 

Someone had robbed the windsreen and tank brackets off it very recently (so presumably there is another one somewhere out there being restored....), but even this was not enough to put off the new owner.

 

And having seen what he has achieved with similar wrecks, no doubt it won't be long before it is looking a bit healthier!

Well at least there's definately air in that nearside tank!

 

Half shaft looks alright! Hope they secured it and didn't lose it on the way back.

Is it yours then ???

 

I'm not that skilled or crazy! My Autocar was on the road when I acquired it last year, and will be back on the road once I get time to finish the rewiring....

 

Yes Lee, it is the same one, but the Mayhem photo obviously shows the better side :cool2:

Thinking about it, I don't think there is a better side :-D

I cannot even tell if it was a truck at one time in history.

 

:confused: You mean to say you don't recognise an Autocar gas tank when you see one? :-D

Wow what a brave man to undertake that! Perhaps we can get regular updates on the restoration?

I am a friend of the new owner and will help in a small way with the restoration, and also make progress reports.
