According to our reference books, the Autocar Type XXI, rated at two tons, rode a 97-inch wheelbase and took its power from an 18.1hp opposed two-cylinder engine with a three-speed transmission and, uncommon for a solid-tired truck from this age, shaft drive. For that reason, we say that this 1912 Autocar Type XXI omnibus for sale on Hemmings.com will not be setting any speed records, with or without passengers in the back. But with prior ownership by Austie, full documentation and that very unique body, it would make an excellent addition to anybody’s brass-era collection. From the seller’s description:
