    I acquired this truck from a friend, Russel Turner. He found the truck years ago and then started the restoration which got as far as the frame and rebuild of the engine. (not crazy about the red engine and intend to paint it to what I believe is the factory color......a gray?) This is a unique BM as it was delivered in San Francisco in 1937 with factory upgrades such as the larger gas motor (BX) air brakes, aux transmission, larger wheels/tires, to name a few. And it was a C cab as well. Hope to have it done for the 2020 truck shows. I like it as it has the early F model look to it.

    Equipped with a pintle hitch on the heavy steel front bumper, extra large air cleaner housing and an Allison transmission. Seen at the Spa 2019.

    You did not miss ID the truck, my pics that were transferred to another hosting service has /had issues. I made an error and didn't catch it which apparently is a major crime here. I only learned of that other Marmon when my son took that photo of it on Main Road about 2006 when he asked me why my truck was at the run down store . It is the twin of mine less the interior and lettering. It also matches the one that Allie Lizza had at his asphalt plant in Glen Cove so there were 3 close matches on L.I.. Since it seems to be a major issue I had the moderator delete the offending photos and when I return home around Thanksgiving I'll take a few pics of mine with a large dated card on it so there is no question, unless you have a specific way you want proof of it. . you tell me what you need. I posting the wrong photo with the caption. As for you never seeing it on L.I in the past 30 years, a side from being parked on the remains of the farm off Roanoke Rd for years it has been in Virginia mostly since 2013. It has been at the LI Power Association show at Hallock Farm in 2007 and 2008 The ATHS show in 2007 at Brookhaven Airport with Allie Lizza's truck and in Pete Horan's O.B. Sand Touch a Truck event last year.

    This is our favorite kind of #TBT post. Back in 1928 The Yannuzzi family started their business. Fast-forward to 1964 when this #AutocarDC came into service to be driven by the founder's grandson, 3rd generation driver, Jimmy Yannuzzi. And guess what they did next? You guessed it: Bought more Autocar trucks. Like this 1965 ten-wheel dump that Jimmy's dad, Carmen, drove. The Yannuzzi fleet topped out at 15 trucks, mostly Autocar. Check out the new DC here: www.autocartruck.com/dc Always Up - Autocar Trucks .

    When I first joined the work force as an electrical tech doing basic stuff, one shop guy asked me to go to the warehouse and ask for a bucket of ohms. I went and someone told me they didnt have any. When I went back to the electrical shop i told them they didnt have anymore and everyone busted out laughing. Ive come a long way since then lol. But I too have fallen victim to this prank.

    Well here's where I let the cat out of the bag because several of you wish that you had my time. I'm salaried at work and run the shop, when the work is done, parts ordered and the shop cleaned I work on the 75 til the next job shows up. The boss doesn't care, I work seven days a week so something gets done on the 75 everyday.

    My new ride. My old 2013 4900 had me hating life. But going to give them another try. So far this truck has far fewer flaws and I see western Star and Detroit have made some changes and improvements. Hopefully it is a good truck this time because I really like it. Went with a smaller engine this time, in hopes it will be better for the DPF. It has a DD13 505 h.p. with 1850 torque at 975 RPM. 18 speed manual, 20,000 front and steering lift axle, 46,000 full locking rears with 4.10 ratio. Even tried a passenger bench seat this time so I can lay down when I'm sitting on site. It came with stainless panels to put on the passenger side of the dash, but not going to put those on. I get sun-blinded enough from the steering wheel. LOL. First pic is beside my buddy's twin steer tri-drive logger. The rest are from today after having the drop visor and tool box installed.

    took these in 2009 when I visited my girlfriend in Hillsboro, NH. a local guy had collected a bunch of old mack trucks and a few others, as well as some construction equipment. I really regret not taking more pictures, because they were all auctioned off the next week.

    For those who don’t remember (it’s been a while), I own Mack B85F1242, a 1957 B85F that spent its entire firefighting career with the Gettysburg, PA fire department. While in college I was a firefighter there. I had the honor of driving and riding the officers seat to this rig’s last actual fire and it’s last alarm (a false alarm nonetheless). This truck stood by for President Eisenhower when his helicopter landed at the family farm in Gettysburg and was nicknamed and dedicated by the President as “General Ike. I bought it with my father-in-laws help six years after it was retired in 1998 (bought in 2004 or so). We restored it and unfortunately it has sat for about 8 years. I replaced the batteries, flushed the fuel system and fired this old boy up for the first time today in 8 years. The 6V53T that it was repowered with in the 1970’s ran like a champ. The Allison auto never missed a beat. Drive it 20 miles home from the storage facility where we keep it during rush hour in Orlando and it got tons of thumbs up. It’s dirty and will be washed at my middle school son’s car wash fund drive on Saturday (I’ll be washing it while the kids wash cars). I’ll post pics and a better video that doesn’t include the stress and shakiness of driving a 60 year old truck in rush hour traffic on Saturday.

    KKergall I thought so but the parts guy that worked as a parts guy for triple city's mack before moving down to cook's as a parts guy said no only one. 41 Chevy I have to agree with you the compressor that is on it is not the original style but I asked and all I got was I need the truck model and serial number. I know you can't remember everything but lately all I get is I don't know. I forget but it was almost 40 years ago when I worked on the mack fleet. I had to drive 30 miles to show the guy that yes there is a seal on the adapter cover for the smoke valve Thank you for your information.

    Saw this unit in Roanoke the other day- Saw these hidden treasures in Roanoke too- I saw this on facebook, thought it was pretty funny- And when I was on the way home I saw this girl in Winfall. She claimed she had twisted her ankle and asked me if I would help her get her shoe off because it was too painful for her to drive with her shoe on. I informed her that- 1. I was not a doctor. 2. I did not have time.

    I’m glad I live where I do, when we were putting the L on a trailer to take it to the shop all our neighbors came by disappointed asking if we were selling it, luckily all turned to smiles when we explained were taking her to put some more life into that old 707 she’s got. Only time anyone’s ever complained was the neighbors who told people to park in our lawn to visit their yard sale and tore down a sign saying no parking... long story short there was soon a Ford fire engine screaming down the road spewing black smoke as it passed their house and the next day their garbage cans were full and smelled strongly of burnt diesel... we haven’t had any issues since! The neighborhood kids still drop their jaws whenever they hear the exhaust whistle screaming and a loud rumble come their way... It’s a shame not everyone can see these things the way these kids and old folk do... I’ve never seen a smile brighter than when we pulled up beside an old man in his 50s model convertible Corvette in a 1953 Mack Firetruck! Those moments right there make everything worth it...

    Replumb the gate air directly to your air tank with a separate old style air switch. No electronics, no nothing. Works when you want it to work.

    Be nice to see the R model cab assembly reproduced in aluminum and supplied to independent truck builders for fitment. I always liked that "driver's cab" layout except for the propensity to rust.

    Today, well actually tomorrow for you lot in the US as you are a day behind us, was the day Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japs. Don't know if the US does anything for this or not, but I will and already have taken a moment to think about all the men that died that day and how that day changed the world for ever. I often wonder in today's fast paced world have we really missed what it is all truly about these young men will never know and I'm afraid people of today have forgotten how quick our lives can be turned upside down. As a Boy Scout says "you should always be prepared". I think we are all slowly forgetting this. Paul

    Yup, crank the glass to the bottom. It needs to be BELOW the top of the channel at the top of the door panel. Then, with some wiggling you should be able to persuade it out of the door. My drivers door panel falls out easily. My passenger door takes lots of very carefully said cuss words! I'll let you use the words I use....just can't type them on the forums LOL!!! Start with George Carlins 7 words you can't say on TV...that's a good start.... I see you are using tape on the door to help with not destroying the paint. I finally had to do this with my new doors. Ugh, the old doors were much easier to work on!!
