    Saw this the other day at the Granite State Show. It is an ex Barnhart Crane and Rigging and believe it is the one that Hobert spied doing some work in his neighborhood a few years ago. https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/45748-a-big-cool-mack/?_fromLogin=1 What a BEAST!

    After about 3 plus years pulled the truck out of the shop for some insurance pictures . Truck was built March 1961 third of an order of twenty four for Genesee Valley Transportation Inc. Buffalo, NY. Painted to U.S. Post Office Specifications . Used by Genesee Valley Trans to haul mail. I could have finished the truck about a year sooner if I did not spend some much time looking for the last tool I was using .

    Mack makes a great truck and this is the site for people who like them, I literally grew up in Mack trucks so I keep going back to them, my first Mack was a B61 with factory sleeper, 673 and triplex, single axle with tag, last new Mack was a Granite with a 460 from the Mack dealer in Montgomery NY, Great truck no power, would have to split a gear just to make it over small rise on the interstate, it did not stay around long, this is a great site for help with problems, also great place to be reminded why you don't want to buy a new truck, I like the pictures and the stories, as much as I like the my Macks I hate the transmissions, great little motors, really well built truck just bad trans, but that comes from our experience and some others do fine with them, that's great for them. Odds and ends is great because on this site the intelligence level might be a little higher than some other places, but if you don't like what you read don't read it, reminds me of the pastor who went and watched a certain porn movie and then went around telling people how bad it was, when you find people who do not speak or debate subjects you tend find people who cannot figure out how their 14 year old daughter got pregnant, those that want to do away with threads that do not match their thoughts are the ones who cannot debate their ideas because they know they are wrong but continue to live in their own dark little closet trying to convince themselves they are right. If positive comments about Trump bother someone they should not read it, fact still remains that Trump has done a great job for this country and Obama was the worst which makes Carter feel great. If you’re a man that's grown a vagina than maybe you should get a vaginaloptomy and grown some man stuff, you might see things in different light. BMT is great, I hope those that are missing are fine, some people have problems and like to keep to themselves, some need support from others. MAPA- Make America Poor Again, Vote Democrat

    I like taking pictures of old workhorses, they have character and a story to tell. If you want pictures of shiny new trucks then this is not the thread for you.

    Cross Bronx , the BQE and even Northern Blvd are better than before. . .the no longer strip your vehicle when you stop they now do it while moving. Even Alphabet City has changed with big signs saying Do Not Stop in Spanglish. AOC and mayor DiBlasio have said it is safe. . .he's goes over in in NYC1 and no issues.

    Heard about this rig the other day and knew it was the one and only! Built new on a commercial chassis. Winhall is a fairly easy trip from my bunker so I might have to stop by the fire dept next time I travel that way.

    so this weekend loaded up my jag on a trailer and towed it a bit over 3 hours to the drag strip. about 30 miles away from the drag strip it starts raining. looking at the forecast rain was likely for the morning hours and diminished greatly threw out the day with slight chances of isolated showers threw out the day. get there fully expecting to be sitting around a while waiting for things to dry out but they called it off for the whole day. so not wanting to waste the trip i start googling things to do or see in the area. see a page listing some things to do in the area and it says "throw yourself in a wood chipper" start laughing thinking its someone joking about how there is nothing to do in the area. turns out it wasn't a joke they had the woodchipper from the movie "fargo" at the visitor center. so what the hell why not. by this point it had already stopped raining and dried up so from there we went to a go cart track and i took a few laps around the go cart track. from there we went to a place called the bonazaville museum. didn't really expect much but i do like history and old things and we had gotten a coupon for a few bucks off the admission at the visitor center so we go there next. this place was massive literally spent probably 6-7 hours here and we were even kinda rushing threw twards the end as we still had a 3 hour drive home. this place covers 12 aches and has everything from old fire engines and tractors historical buildings air places and even a locomotive. pretty cool place, if you ever have a day to kill around the fargo/morehead area i would highly recommend it. i probably have over 100 pictures i could post...lol

    Have a look at Ian Lee facebook page and also have a look at his Tylden Heritage web site, it has his life story. Tony did not take Seduce to the 2015 Alice truck show, it was parked outside his museum the days you guys visited his museum, I remember it was outside the day we had the dinner in Tony's big open shed. Unfortunately the angle that I took the photo, does not properly show the cab lift and hood extension. Yes the extension and cab lift are real, purposely the modifications were made so that they are not obvious. Compare the depth of the metal panel below door sills of the blue B75 and Seduce, that is a how the lift is disguised, it has been modified to make it look completely original. The large air cleaner also covers up the extension. The original B75 cab sits low on the frame same as the B61 cab, both have the same low cross member under the back of the cab. Seduce has a custom made raised cross member similar to the B615. Picture of Seduce's rear of cab cross member is below. Again photo angle is not fully showing the cab lift. The V8 Mack is an 866 and a swap in, has power steering and air con in both cabins

    PD came by the station today for a quick impromptu photo shoot with their '59 Biscayne. We're going to try and go down to the beach one of these days to shoot some more with a better background.....perhaps after the restoration of the lettering and gold striping on our Mack....

    Do the letters F.O. mean anything to you? Hahaha kinda reminds me of a B model site I found on the internet advertising B MODEL PARTS FOR SALE.and they were using a picture of my truck on their website. I contacted them and got a nasty response....

    Kscarbal you gave a great reply to that person. I feel that most everyone on BMT supports you for what you do share Mack history with us and you must use a lot of your free time to do it.

    I have been really happy with it, nothing like catching a cat powered pete or kw on a hill or at a red light and then running away from them as they look at you in bewilderment. One of these days I'm going to get it dynoed again and see what she is really doing.

    Both of these Mack locomotives need better homes than they have now and certainly could be restored to running condition. One is a 1935 12-ton Mack locomotive (serial no. 171008), now located at the Black River and Western Railroad in Ringoes, New Jersey. It was previously owned by the Bigelow-Sanford Carpet Company, the Harrison Warehousing Company and the Crucible Steel Company. The second unit is a 1930 12-ton "special construction" Mack locomotive (serial no. 171010) that was first operated by Perth Amboy Garage and later the Edgar Brothers Kaolin Company in McIntyre, Georgia. The locomotive is presently in Georgia at the City of Gordon's 1885 Depot and Railroad Museum. Both deserve a better fate than what they have now, resting outside at the mercy of the elements. They should be restored and operational, and stored indoors. .

    No doubt it would do the job in Nigeria,might even be too good for that! I don't mind Hendrickson suspension,but not over camelback! Possibly future "Ammunition Carrier" in a 3rd world country near you! Front bumper all set up to "Crash the gate doin' 98 (uh,maybe 58)"!!

    I have a set that came with a 38 all rubber cutoff so I can't help with a vin to get things going for you. These are for the front axle and the shock bracket frame mounts using the body bound bolts that hold the frog legs into the chassis. The bottom bracket bolts to the lower spring cap at the end of the spring. All bolts no welding. I will see if I can get any numbers off either the brackets or the shocks. I have a very bad attitude when it comes to "what's the last six of your vin?" I can understand if your are talking about an ECM..... but this is BASIC camelback suspension stuff!!! Yes, I know there are variations but put a f@*cking exploded diagram showing a couple of set ups with some damn part numbers in a BOOK or microfiche or a computer if you have to. They did it that way for years. Standing down for a moment....where are my meds? Jim
