Details

The Autocar Two-Ton Truck was originally sold with three different commercial body types.  It had a 97 inch wheelbase and width of 58 inches.  The wooden wheel and heavy leaf spring suspension allowed for a 4,000 lb. cargo capacity.  Included in the construction of the Autocar Two-Ton Truck was a single bucket bench seat which accommodated the driver and one passenger.  Powered by a twin cylinder engine with 22 horsepower, it offered three forward gears and one reverse gear allowing a top speed of about 15 mph (24kph).  The General Service Cargo Lorry used by the British Army during WW1 incorporated an open top, low walled wooden cargo box and fixed tailgate. Between 1914 and 1918, 460 of these vehicles were produced by the Autocar company of Pennsylvania and purchased by the British for use in England, France and Africa.

 

This paper model kit, designed and created by Dave Winfield, represents the Autocar in authentic colours and markings as it would have been seen in service with the British Army during WWI. 


Paper Model Details:  This 1:12 scale model contains over 900 parts on 22 pages, 8 pages of detailed assembly diagrams and an informational page with historical photos.  When completed this model measures over 14" long and has many optional and potentially moving parts.  The Autocar Chassis is fully detailed with suspension, steering, engine, transmission, complete drivetrain, spoked wheels, driver controls, ammo crates, Army helmets and machine gun belts.
