Did Reo make that for Mack?  Seems to me there was a document of Reo making the Junior models and also cab forward chassis.

The Macks have it, with Don leading the way. This is a Mack Retailer, or Model MR, from about 1941. Mack began production of the MR in 1939 as a 1940 model, and production continued until 1942. Unlike the Reo-built Mack Jr's, this little truck was all Mack, except for what I suspect was a Continental 6 cylinder engine. The chassis appears to be based on the ED model, and the bodies were built in Mack's Long Island City plant. Thanks to Bill White for the WAI photo, Dan Souday for the ad, and the spec sheet is from my collection.

According to my information the Mack DE in 1939 and ED in 1939-46 used the Mack EN11 engine which had 3-3/16" bore  x 4-3/8" stroke and 210" cubic inch displacement.  The Continental F209 and F6209 (also Brockway 24B) also had the same bore x stroke and displacement.  Kinda looks like Mack EN11 = Continental F6209.

Thanks Warren. I have read somewhere that the "Mack" engine used in the small models was really a Continental.
