Spotted today at the 2014 White Bash in South Brunswick, NJ. Campbell Freightliner hosted this year's show with a nice selection of White Motor Company trucks.

The Stainless Steel Edgcomb truck was neat to see in person.

how many trucks were there? I was going to take a ride down, but plans changed

Medium-size show on all concrete surface. I'm gonna say about about 50 trucks.

Weather was threatening all day but just a passing drizzle. They had the potential to get a lot more trucks because it was heavily promoted.

Paul I used to work with Stash Bzdek at the Grows Landfill,Kearny N.J.I am suprised he still has the Acar that was in the late 1980'S. Nice pictures by all. Thanks Joe D.

I can't recall specific names but a couple of the stainless Autocars are out there in the hands of collectors.

There was one on display at Macungie several years ago.

Autocar spec sheet found on the web.

Ford made a batch of '58 Ford Thunderbirds stamped out of stainless steel as well. The S.S was real tough on the stampings and would require much tooling repairs.

They also did a batch of 1936 Ford in '36, a pair of 1961 or 2 Lincoln Continentals and a 1960 T bird and a 1967 Continental

Whats interesting on the Acars it the cabs are the newer style and are close to the start of the run.

Stainless 1936 Fords
