Autocar » FE / GE

In 1932, Autocar presented two new heavy-duty models. The 30,000-lb gross weight lorry, Model FE, was a four-wheeler, and the 45,000-lb., Model GE, was a six-wheeler with a four wheel drive. The latter exceeds by 9000 lb. gross weight rating of the Model G six-wheeler, while the former has the same rating as the Model CE. Body and payload capacity of Model FE is 8.5 tons, of Model GE, 14.5 tons. Basic design is the same for both models and they incorporate the same engine, clutch, main and auxiliary transmissions, front axles, front springs and steering gears and the same type of air brakes on all wheels. The engine which is a Sterling Petrel with six cylinders 5 1/4 x 6 in. develops 156 hp at 1800 r.p.m. Rear axle of four wheel model FE is Timken-Wisconsin double reduction, full floating unit. Model GE is supplied with a Timken SWD 410W tandem axle.

Each model is offered in three wheel bases, the four-wheel FE in 180, 216 and 234 in. lengths, and Model GE in 198, 216 and 234 in. The transmission set up comprises a four-speed, unit mounted main transmission and an amidships-mounted three-speed auxiliary. Westinghouse air brakes are applied to all wheels. A feature of the wide cab is the forced ventilation provided by an exhaust casing of streamline form extending upward a short distance from the cab roof, and a motor-driven fan beneath it placed horizontally at the roof line.
