What a beast. I always enjoy seeing those heavy haulers. Do you know the specs by chance?

That Marino LRVSW was painted Marino colors about 20 years ago in Portland Ct. Actually there were two of them being painted.

They did have a big Autocar an AP-19 I believe. That unit pulled our retired many ton steam generators out of our Nuclear plant in Haddam Neck Ct. to a railroad siding in Portland Ct. If I remember right there was a Western Star pusher. Marino is still in Middletown Ct however it was bought out by Barnhart. Marino did a lot of work for Northeast Utilities( now Eversource).

I saw the two Mack LRVSW's being painted by the Flannery brothers in Portland Ct. Barnhart still may still have one and the other one may have been sold.. I thought I read that one of them did some work in the Carribean islands. Autocar had big plans for the AP's but there production facilities just couldn't support manufacturing them unlike Mack with the LR and M models. Then the dumb asses sold out to White. White never pursued the AP's as far as I know.

That's a big hood on that Autocar! Shouldn't be any problem to keep the engine cool.

Makes you wonder-with that big radiator on the A-car, and the Mack was doing same work??  wonder how the temp gauge looked in THAT truck!

The 1964 AP-19 had a 12 cylinder 525 HP Cummins under the hood and certainly had more water capacity than the Mack.
