Autocar » Dispatch

In 1929, Autocar presented two new six-cylinder trucks, one of 1.5 and the other 2-ton rating, which replaced corresponding four-cylinder Model A units. The name six-cylinder Dispatch applies to both chassis, and the tonnage ratings are distinguished by the model designations SA and SD respectively. Bevel gear rear axle and single rear tires are incorporated in the 1.5-ton chassis and double reduction gear rear axle and dual rear tires in the larger truck. A six-cylinder 3.75 to 4.5 in. 60 hp engine and four-speed Brown-Lipe transmissions are employed in both models. Lockheed hydraulic front brakes and mechanical rear brakes, both of internal type, comprise the four wheel braking system.

Appearance was considered, as well as mechanical details, in designing the Dispatch models. The radiator, hood and cowl have been proportioned to give a pleasing impression. The company offered a de luxe coupe cab for the chassis which harmonized with the chassis lines. A wood frame and metal panels were used in construction of the cab and it was supplied with one-piece ventilating windshield, metal visor, remote door controls and automatic windshield wipers. In 1931 the indexes of models were changed to A and D, respectively.
