Mack H-63

Well my trip to Kevin All's place last week got more expensive today.

I became the proud owner of a pretty straight and decent H-63 cabover Mack.

Single axle diesel tractor with a duplex. Pretty standard stuff. Needs a total rehab.

Given the rarity of the truck, I will be looking for any information as to originality.

Things like interior details are going to be fairly important to me. It is a cool old truck!

And it looks to be very complete, except as I said, the interior is missing some of the finishing touches.

If anyone has any knowledge of these old cabovers, I would sure be appreciative.

We probably will not do too much to the old girl for a year or so. I need time to complete

my B-67 and get the R-600 in the shop and painted.

But I will probably put it on a trailer and take it to the Watt's Mack anniversary party using one

of the other old dogs to haul it. At least then I will have a bunk to take a nap in!

Maybe I could rent the bunk out to other tired show-goers, by the hour?

The march 2005 truck of the month featured Joe Mustang's H model. There is a good story about the truck, and there was a good photo of the truck. I just tried to look at it again, and found the story but no photo. You might ask Barry what happened to it. James

Thanks James,

I found that story again the other night, myself.

That was a nice truck - I hope that truck is in good hands.

Joe might have had more power than we have! If memory serves me correct -

he used a 1693 Caterpillar. Ours has the Mack 673. Big difference!

I've got to try and get a hold of Fred Beauchamp in Vermont. He had a really nice

H-63, that I understand he has sold. The interior in his was perfect, and he might know

where to find some of the materials and sources for parts.

I like the hunt as much as the finished project.
