It was a 1973 westcoast F model 325 V-8 maxidine, tall rubber, I can't remember the rear ratio but you went into 5th gear at 45mph and it went up to a little over 80mph at 2400rpm's. This was the first Mack I'd seen with bone or tan colored interior instead of the traditional green.

By junkmandan - Friday, February 17, 2012 3:46 PM
Newfie-----Doug Fetterly called me from Florida a couple days ago regarding the F model . He told me that approximately 10 years ago it was owned by the late John Zanko of Kirtland,Oh. ,just a few miles from Chardon .
Although John had been an NEO club member better than 20 years,his health issues kept him home a lot .
Roger Martin may have the right reason for the hardware,the 4 man cab . Just so many signs pointed to an engineering test unit .

Grundy county would be Trenton, north of Chillicothe. It was one of the counties listed on my Mo. intrastate PSC#. Was their a name on the truck?
By MikeHarbison - Monday, February 06, 2012 2:20 PM
Doug Fetterly sent me these pics and so far,these are the only ones of the Justice's trucks.He didn't give anymore info other than the pulling truck had a hopped up Chevy engine.

The H693 is one of Doug's trucks.It has a ENDT673,20 speed Quad,and heavy rear end on 11:00x22 rubber.Only 55 H693's were built,so it's pretty special.

Larry,

I'll have to take some pics sometime to explain better,but my N61 has 2 little air controlled "shifter boxes" mounted on the doghouse.they have little short shift levers and are slotted for each gear position.There's air lines that run back to the transmission.Don't know how well it worked as this truck doesn't run but sure is a interesting set up.
Wasn't this air shift called UNISHIFT by Mack?

Where'd you find this pic ,Jeff?Never seen one before.


Mike, I bought this picture from a vendor at the Baltimore show. I had no idea what model it was, but it looked like a factory job. I sent the picture to the Mack Museum but they couldn't id it either. Then at Macungie in 2008 I found the same picture from a different vendor but this one had the id on the back. It read "Mack QA Experimental QA4D1001.  Delivered to JJ Casale January 22, 1941". I've never seen another photo of this truck, but John Montville does list the QA model (1 built) in his "Mack" book.

Jeff,

I understand that a serious car collector in Michigan ended up with it. I met the former owner a few times and last I talked to him that is where he said it was.
By J Hancock - Sunday, January 29, 2012 3:04 AM
The L model sleeper could be saved but you would have to be plenty motivated!

My guess is someone really wants the Cummins emblem off the hood which have become extremely difficult to find.  With the rest of the truck looking like it does, the emblems may be a little rough as well.

Sad to see it gone so far....

 Catless they were produced by Budd for both Ford and Mack. Same basic cab but the Mack version had a doghouse. Grill,trim and interior different. At one time the Ford C-Model was produced longer than any other model truck. Not sure if Mack R-Model was the truck that was produced longer. Joe D.

I knew Ford had the cab first,but always thought Budd built the cabs for Mack,didn't know they built them in house.

I was at a friend's yesterday checking out his N-85 he's putting back together,just got the cab painted and got all the chrome re-done.It was originally a firetruck but all the fire equipment was stripped when he got it.One of only 5 built,has a 707 gas engine. He's going to put a LP tank on it to advertise his LP gas business.

I'm also pretty sure the Mack R model edged out the C model Ford for longest in production.

Yes, it is mine. I found it on a farm near me. I will make a post some time and give all the bloody detail$. I feel like a failure with it: no spoke wheels and no Detroit in it.

 

Dan, after I made the above post I went back and checked the other post. I corrected it to say that it took 6 months to travel "15 MILE$". I originally said "15 months".


Fred,

you should have shopped around a little more,there was a batch of MH's with 6V92's and spoke wheels that sold on a Taylor&Martin auction 15 yrs. ago or so,I'd bet there might be a couple still floating around somewhere.
By W71Mack - Thursday, May 31, 2012 2:26 PM
AMT used to model some of the Macks. It was the Ultra-liner they modeled. One thing that was really tricky about the B-67 that it looked almost like the Loadstar International with the exception of the doors and the trim on the hood. And wasn't the L models being built in 1946? I know that Ed Kite's truck is a 1956 LTL Mack. But when was the last L model made? Speaking of Ed Kite, tell him that he is welcome to have a coffee with me. I hope he comes to the Springfield, MO show.

So that's where Dr.Bill's W71 ended up.I had heard rumors it went overseas after being auctioned by the last owner in Chicago.does the museum own it or is it on loan from someone??


It is owned by Keith Jones and brother who own Abilene Trucking and the Tractor Museum. They have had it for several years. They own about 25 antique trucks in addition to the 170 farm tractors on display. One of the workers there told me they also own many, many unrestored farm tractors stored in trailers at the museum.



Fred, are you sure about your facts? That's not who bought it from the Schaaf auction near Chicago, September 2007.
By Mike_Blais - Monday, January 30, 2012 2:33 AM
From 1975 this is a brand new R-686ST ser.# 9200. The company got some new business and needed a new tractor now. They ran it for months before it got painted yellow. The trailer is a new 1975 custom built Murphy. I got to go on my February school vacation to Wilson, N.C. with the driver to pick up the new trailer. We took a 3208 powered single axle Fleetstar 2050-A and I still have not recovered.

My father and I are partners on this 1941 Mack DE.

The DE is rated at 11,000 gvw and has 6.50 X 20 tires.  The engine is a Mack EN 12 (Continental F226), Warner 4 spd trans and Clark axles front and rear.  The original rear gear was a 6.33 but it was changed out for a 5.57. An aux trans or a Gear Vendors overdrive may find its way into the truck.

The stake body steel was bent at a local shop and I welded it up.  A local sawmill provided the oak for the floor and sides.  The bottom of the doors and cab floor took many hours of welding as did the back of the cab.

Someday we will get it all done.

It is almost Monday so here's my contribution.  My father and I bought several trucks from Ralph G. Smith of West Chester PA after they closed in April of 2010.  The first picture is of a 1950 Mack LFT with a Lanova Diesel when it was in service.  It is the first diesel truck bought by the company.  The second picture is in the condition I bought it.  The liner in the fifth cylinder was scored.  The truck was taken apart a number of years ago and was never put back together.  I was told I had everything I needed to put it back together.  That was not the case.  Besides that the injection pump and air compressor have to be rebuilt.  I took it too a mechanic in October of 2010 and his is still pecking away at it.  I had hoped to have it at Macungie last year them Springfield this year.  It doesn't look like that is happening either.  I really like the license plates on the front of the truck.  I would like to get appropriate 1950 plates from other states to put back on the truck.  Maybe I will start another thread to find out what kind out tags I would run on a tractor from PA.  I do have an 1950 PA Y tag for the truck.  The trailer in the first photo is long gone, but I did get a 1948 Highway horse van which is in the third photo hooked to the 1985 MH612 I got from Smith's .

Just a few more points on the Ford C cab.

The origional dies were worn out three times and were remade. The last set were refurbished three times and the decision was made to discontinue this model when they wore out. The last two years of production the worn dies were evident when you looked at the panel mating lines. The didn't match correctly. The last run was made in the 1992 model year and the last order was by Roadway for 200 city tractors, with Ford 7.8L diesels. At present time it holds the longest continuest run title.

The Ford CF7000 / 8000 ( Cargo ) series were the replacement product line. They moved production of this model from Brazil to Louisville in 1991. The tractor version of these units didn't come out until 1993

So that's where Dr.Bill's W71 ended up.I had heard rumors it went overseas after being auctioned by the last owner in Chicago.does the museum own it or is it on loan from someone??


It is owned by Keith Jones and brother who own Abilene Trucking and the Tractor Museum. They have had it for several years. They own about 25 antique trucks in addition to the 170 farm tractors on display. One of the workers there told me they also own many, many unrestored farm tractors stored in trailers at the museum.

Mackdaddy,

I think they only got them to 500hp and as for complaints drivers did like the power but there were issues with blocks cracking here (Europe). In any case they dropped the V8 when they could not get it through the Euro 4 emission standards, I think they have some Ovlov unit under that cab now.

Here's a road train waiting to unload at the Red Sea port of Eilat in the south of Israel.

The Renault is what you call a "French Bulldog".......they continued to use the V8 Mack engine for several years after their end in the U.S. and they rated them in the 600hp range. Only complaints I know was it was hard to keep rubber on the single drives with all that power.

Probably the oldest picture with me and a truck in it. Probably taken 76-77ish in Oregon during a summer visit to my grandparents. My Grandpa Lee is to the left. We worshiped the ground he walked on as kids. I am the one with all the blond hair - probably bout 9 years old at the time. Note the rubber boots my brother and I are wearing. We played in the barn a lot so we wore adult rubber boots over our shoes. The driver on the truck is Dale Zumwalt. I don't know his whereabouts these days but he was a pretty successful guy. He lived in what a lot of people would consider a southern mansion. The 359 that he replaced this Mack with had a full size building it lived in. He was one of the first local guys to have a self loading truck which was still a pretty big deal in the mid 70's. I went to school with his daughter.
On Edit - Mr Zumwalt Passed away in 2005.
Mr. Zumwalt was born July 22, 1938, in Forest Grove. He owned and operated Timberline Enterprises, a logging company, and was a log hauler for Scott Land and Timber Co. He also operated PacWest Timber, a timber brokerage business, with his daughter for more than 10 years. He was past president of the Oregon Log Truckers Association.

 Mack model "N" which was produced between 1958 and 1962, Ford C model was built between 1957 and 1990,

Some historians have erroneously referred to the Ford tilt-cab as the "Budd" cab,
implying that it was an off the shelf item available to anyone. The C-Series cab was designed by Ford,
tooled at Ford's expenses and built by the Budd Company to Ford Motor Company specifications.
Other truck manufacturers had to obtain Ford approval before purchasing it. The exception was Mack,
which bought most of the major cab stampings from Budd and assembled them itself on a floor pan of its own design.

Bill


Bill, do you know it to be true that Mack bought the parts from Budd? I find it hard to believe that Ford would have allowed anyone to use the parts it had spent money to engineer and design without getting any payment. It would have been normal procedure in Ford's contract with Budd that they not sell the parts to anyone else. If Budd had supplied the parts to another company, they would have found themselves in court quickly. It is much more likely that Ford sold the cab parts to Mack.

It was very common for a truck builder to have a body company build its cabs and also common for a truck builder to sell the cabs to a different truck builder

My guess is that when someone called the N cab a Ford cab, which it so obviously was, a Mack persons standard reply was that the cab was built by Budd, and that is how the misconception came about that it was a Budd cab and Budd sold it to Mack.

The same cab was used by FWD.

Mike, this may interest you.

From the "Mack Fire Trucks 1911-2005" by Harvey Eckart.
 
An N model was introduced in 1958 to replace the D series.
These were of the low cab-over configurations and used the same Budd built cab used on the Ford C series trucks.
A total of 1,945 trucks were produced through 1962.

Five were produced between 1960 and 1963 as custom fire apparatus and
carried custom fire apparatus model designations N85F, N95F and N505F.

Fred D-----Your post is a little confusing............Is that your MH ? Nice truck !

And who knows the full story on the F model with Aerodyne sleeper ? Saw it at the Ashtabula show last July,and took a bunch of pictures wondering what all the extra iron was for on the back of the engine . Interior was set up with seating in the rear also ,as if it had been used for some type of engineering tests . Kind of had a hunch that it might have been used by NASA for early Twin Turbo setups like currently used on the DD 15 and DD 13 where the 2nd turbo puts mechanical energy back into the gear train .

No Mike, they belong to Norm Taughton. Here are a few other Macks in his yard. The LT is double framed as if it was a factory job. Never saw one like it before. I also liked the toggle switch and light that the owner installed under the hood most likely to check the oil.

By MikeHarbison - Tuesday, June 05, 2012 7:06 PM
The G was restored/repowered sometime in the '70's.The paint is kinda tired and it needs a little tinkering here and there,but it runs and drives good.I'm real happy with it,all in all it's a good solid truck.My son and I flew out Thurs. and went to Hinsdale,MA to pickup the truck from Jim Fox,AKA Twostickmutt.Drove it 50 miles to the show,then loaded it on a friends dropdeck for the ride home.Surprisingly,it was the only G model at the show.

For right now,I'm going to get some better tires on it,paint up the rear wheels,swap the front wheels for budds,& get the 5th wheel bolted down.

By Michelle Cole - Monday, January 16, 2012 4:40 AM
I know this picture has been posted on this board before, but it is so classic that I had to post it once more. This is one of my all time favorite pictures as it captures the flavor of the west in the mid 1950's. It is also a great Mack Monday picture with the L model Mack sitting in the cafe parking lot. The rest of the vehicles are not shabby either, the 53 Ford convertible sitting under the canopy at the pumps . The Allied bed bug hauler parked on the shoulder probably stopped to grab a bite to eat to the 55 Ford with the bug screen covering the front of the car from which the picture was made.

Grenfell34, What is that a load of? Looks like rock, but would be too much weight.
By ESwartzie - Wednesday, April 04, 2012 3:01 PM
Mike, maybe someday that truck will look like this again

This is from the "car show", Chicago, '59.

I have never seen an air shift tri-plex, and interesting setup.

I drove a Mack V8 at the Peoria terminal for Standard Oil Company from '65 to '68. They were geared too high to haul gas in Illinois; had 13 speed tri-plex that went into the highest gear at over 60 mph. I'm trying to think what the shift pattern was, don't know if it was a double overdrive or a short 4th. They were quite a step up from a R190 Cornbinder with a 450 and 5 speed. The main trouble with them were head gaskets and camshaft bearings. I've often wondered how RJ Collins keeps head gaskets in the Buckeye Bulldog!!
