Not all trucking companies understand how hard you work. And unless they've walked in your steel-toed boots, they probably never will. Autocar gets it. With over a century in the industry, Autocar products are made with only one goal in mind: to help you get your job done, and get it done all day, every day.Â
We offer a wide variety of Autocar truck parts that are built tough to make sure you can keep your focus where it needs to be â€” on the journey ahead.Â
AUTOCAR HYDRAULIC CAB LATCHES
Autocar hydraulic latches securely hold covers and cabs for safe travel and are ideal for new and existing fire and rescue applications. These hydraulic cab latches are compact in size and strength and have the versatile mounting capability to easily meet single or multiple latch needs.
The unique, patented cab latch designs from Autocar include a latch indicator with options such as a light or transmission lock that indicates when the latch has engaged or released. Autocar hydraulic cab latches also feature pin reactions that indicate the latch has engaged mechanically, and the extension of the pin indicates the latch has disengaged hydraulically.
AUTOCAR COOLANT LEVEL SENSORS
Making sure your engine has the right amount of coolant is a big job â€” and the Autocar coolant level sensor is here to do it. When your engine begins running on low levels of coolant, it can cause unexpected downtime and potential repairs that you werenâ€™t prepared for. The coolant level sensor from Autocar triggers the low coolant level on your dash when you need more, ensuring a safe ride with minimal interruption.
Common signs that your coolant level sensor needs to be replaced are the coolant light staying on, coolant levels getting too low without the indicator light engaging, or the engine getting too hot. Rather than putting off replacing your coolant level sensor, trust Autocar with tough performance and dependability you can count on mile after mile.
AUTOCAR EXHAUST GASKETS
Investing in the best for your truck or fleet means not sacrificing quality for even the smallest components, such as flange and exhaust gaskets. Gaskets from Autocar are used to create a tight, secure seal around flanges to prevent leakage from the various fluids, coolants, and refrigerants that are necessary to keep you up and running.Â
Exhaust gaskets and other gaskets that provide a seal for important gases and liquids should be checked regularly for signs of wear or for leaks that you may not notice as you're driving. Don't put off replacing gaskets â€” Autocar exhaust gaskets and other gaskets can help provide that security you need to get to your delivery on time.

The history of Autocar began in 1897 when Louis Semple Clarke built a tricycle powered by a one-cylinder gasoline engine called â€œAutocar No. 1,â€ which is now in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Later that year, Clarke began the Pittsburgh Motor Vehicle Company with support from his two brothers, father, and a friend, William Morgan.
After the completion of Autocar No. 2, a four-wheeled runabout car they called â€œThe Pittsburgherâ€, was built in 1898 and is now in the Henry Ford Museum. In 1899, the company was moved to Ardmore, Pennsylvania and renamed â€œthe Autocar Company.â€ Although Clarke and his partners knew they were at the start of something important,Â even they couldnâ€™t have known how they would shape all modern American cars and trucks. Autocar still thrives today and, over a century later, is proud to be the oldest surviving vehicle nameplate in the country.
