  1. LOL.. Yes!! I Love it.. It is a Family project. I found it on Ebay about a year ago where the guy was selling the hood and going to part it out. I begged, borrowed and stole to get the money and bout her. It is an early factory air conditioned truck too!! Build sheet from Mack says Kysor but it looks to be a RedDot unit. All original and I am the 3rd owner. We have been gathering parts and still need a few things. These Western trucks are very different and parts are weird.. The 1/32 trucks are a LOT cheaper to maintain and repair and I have a lot to catch up on.. LOL.. We have to decide if we

  5. 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,

  6. 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
