    oh and by the way if you can get the serial number on it that should tell what model it is. you can also contact the mack museum with the serial number and they can give you info on your truck.

    I am trying to head up to Springfield this year. Also Florham Park. If you have any questions I recommend calling Dennis Meehan from oldmacks.com. He has a lot of information. Enjoy the truck!

    There should be an ID plate located near the officer's seat. It is most probably a Type 45. If you can ID the engine model and the pump capacity I can give you the model. The chassis number is also on the front right frame horn and may be listed on the registration card if you have one.

    As soon as you find the chassis number write to the Mack Museum with the number and they will send you an owner's manual and any delivery pictures they have of the rig. A suitable contribution to the museum for this service is appropriate.

    Where are you in MD? Have you joined SPAAMFAA or the local chapter of SPAAMFAA?

    I am going to try to get to the ATHS show with my rig. I should be at Macungie as well.

    Do NOT run non-detergent oil. Use a good quality 30 weight for general use.

    If you cannot locate an oil filter send me a PM. I know someone who has several of them.

    Yes your truck is an E model. There were a lot of different models that looked like this. If you look in my gallery under "macks" you will see a similar truck. Mine is a Type 55. Like they said, look for the serial number plate somewhere in the cab, probably on the passenger side seat base. And don't run detergent oil unless you drop the oil pan and clean it out. I wouldn't worry about an oil filter unless you plan on putting a lot of miles on the truck. They are not full flow any way. I have attached a Mack add from ebay that might work to show you a type 50, but maybe not.

    I'll be at Macungie and Springfield. I might bring the Type 55 to Macungie, but not to Springfield.

    That is a great looking truck. Yours is an A model and the other is an E model. The E model preceeded the A model. They used the same cab, but the grill is different. I don't know about the hood and fenders. I think you have the serial number wrong. Please take a closer look. Maybe it is 75A1001? Does your truck run? It looks pretty solid. A little rubbing compound should go a long way. Looks like you have a great location too. I have a very similar truck to yours, 405A1002. It is in original condition with a few modifications. The body is solid. It runs great, but does not like to start when the engine is hot.

    Parallel six volt batteries solved that problem with my A-40. It wouldn't crank when the engine was at operating temperature.
