    • I will start by saying there are 6 LT's used to restore this one. There is over 3400 hours of labor that were put in by the previous owner and me so if you figure $20 an hour, no one would work on it for $20 an hour back then or now, that is $68,000 for labor. $25,000 to stipe to bare metal everything except frame and suspension and show quality repaint. Then there is the cost of the 6 donor LT's that averaged $9000 each, $54000 as the only way to get the parts was to get the whole trucks. Find an engine $2500, Rebuild that Supercharged 320 Cummins $10000. Imported 22 inch tube tires 10@$400, $4000. 
      All total $163,500  I'll take half that for it $81,750  Went you want to come and get it?
      It took (6) B-75's to restore my B-755 and relatively the same cost. It what it takes to do a first class show quality restoration.
    • Unfortunately these last few years his piggy bank is getting smaller... too many medical bills are making him realize he needs to do the things he’s wanted to do for years before he can’t anymore. Things are starting to look up, they’re just not quite there yet, and I’m trying to figure this stuff out so when he’s ready he can get the most joy out of whatever he decides on...
      Me, I’ve got plenty of time so I figure I’ll help dad on his projects before getting around to my own... hopefully by that point my piggy bank will be big enough I can do just about whatever I want.
      Now I’m curious though, how big is a big enough piggy bank for yours? I know a guy locally that has one with a twin stick, but heaven forbid you even bring up the possibility of asking him to part with it... I think I’m more likely to get his working, near factory new, Superdog...
    • There are LT's around and for a hobby truck there is nothing better. Break open the piggy bank. The trucks are't getting any younger just like your Dad. If he's got cash around, just know it doesn't do any good in a bank account.
      Oh, just realized he can buy mine! He needs a BIG piggy bank!
    • Thanks for you input, luckily I found a honey pot or two for parts, and between them I’ve been able to get every part I’ve needed or in contact with someone who has some for my one of a kind firetruck. The parts sources weren’t just for firetrucks either...
      But like I said thanks for the advice! I have a feeling my dad wouldn’t mind having a collection just like yours but wanted to find a good rig to haul with first. I actually know of a few really good MHs and a Superliner or two I should be able to get my hands on so it sounds like those’ll be the ones I try to convince my dad to pursue... he just really wants an old LTL like yours!
    • This LTL has a 5x2x3 total 27 forward, 6 reverse from Mack. It was not uncommon for West Coast trucks. Duplex into a 3 speed Brownie.
      As for something to actually drive and haul the Superliner is it. It will pull anything and not break a sweat. It dynoed at 1138hp to the wheels years back and had more to go, dyno quit reading! Have to have power steering, A/C, air ride suspension, air ride cab, air ride seat, to be a little comfortable. I drive the RW, Phoenix to Macungie, no way with the LTL or B-755. they would shake my guts out!
      Maybe the MH when I get that one together if it were close to stock. I'm going drag racing with it. Really turned up twin turbo E9, Diesel/alcohol, with an HT754 Allison 5 speed automatic.
      Yes the 4 that I got are the best looking of the Mack Pack. I am not getting any more.
      One more thing if you want something nice, you got to pay or scrounge for parts for years, and parts are getting harder to come by. It took 10 years to get all the parts together when the B was restored about 8 years ago. 
      I bought the LTL complete for far less than what was in it and had to redo all the sheet metal. Putting another $25K and all my work in it for what you see. It is one of about three in the world that still has all 141 aluminum castings it was born with to make it an LTL.
