History: The PC&F 6033 cubic foot Hy-Cube box car uses a classic double-sheathed construction: wrapped in 3/3/3/1 dreadnaught ends, diagonal panel overhanging roof and single 10’-6” YSD sliding doors. The cars were equipped with Barber S-2 or ASF Ride Control trucks and full Hydra-Cushioning.

Railroad/Company:
In 1905, William Pigott, Sr. founded Seattle Car Mfg. Co. to produce railway and logging equipment at its plant in West Seattle. The company later merged with Twohy Brothers of Portland to become Pacific Car and Foundry Company, a name it retained for the next 55 years. In 1924, William Pigott sold control of the company to American Car and Foundry Company.

Believing "Pacific Car and Foundry Company" no longer accurately reflected the company's products and activities, directors and shareholders voted to adopt PACCAR Inc as its new name in 1972. In 1973, two major divisions of PACCAR were founded. PACCAR International Inc., with headquarters in Bellevue, Washington, was formed to consolidate the sales and service of company products abroad, and PACCAR Parts Division was established in Renton to supply aftermarket parts sales.
