  1. The LA Times dead-ended. Hundreds of articles with a ‘Robinson’ or a ‘Ross’ referenced, but nothing leading to a potential business. Thought I had a phone # for JHRobinson in Texas, but that didn’t pan out either. - still looking. . . . . . . . . . .
  2. We are in Florida. We rescued the truck from imminent scrapping in the Fontana area, in 2007. Old guy was trying to save them from destruction. He’s the guy who implied logging, but not sure he really knew. Unfortunately I didn’t get a copy of the prior title when he transferred to me Thanks for your help.
  3. Unfortunately not. Robinson was ‘possibly’ into logging, but I don’t have anything to back that up. And LA doesn’t really support that, even in 1922. For some reason, the chassis was chopped and the wheelbase shortened by 12” - but I have no idea when - and the truck had a pto added as well. So far everything has been a dead end, which is why I’m trying here. Hoping someone knows some local history out there. Thanks Paul
  4. Oops forgot. Did find the Ross Bros realtor, but their history didn’t lead me anywhere.
  5. Thanks guys. I did find the Corpus Christi link, but like you said they seem to be local to Texas. I will call them tho and see if they moved somewhere between the 20’s and 40’s. Also found a couple of court cases Involving JH Robinson Truck Lines, but they showed in the 5th district -also Texas I believe. Also found this (pic below) which is color correct as the Mack green is how it left the factory (??) CH Robinson doesn’t seem to be related as they were only in the south East (Florida) at that time. So, still looking Thanks for any ideas or leads !
  6. Yup, that’s the problem. But - Hoping to find someone . . . .who knows someone .... 100 yrs is a long time.
  7. I’m looking for any info on the original owners of an AC I’m restoring. It was originally purchased by a J.H.Robinson of LA Ca. in December 1922. It was then sold to the Ross Bros. in Long Beach in 1924. Multiple Internet searches over several years, haven’t discovered any leads, and now that I’m finally getting close to completing the restoration, thought about trying a forum APB request. If anyone would have history or leads on these two owners, I would appreciate your assistance. It would be nice to acquire some original photos and history of the truck.
  8. Fill out this form for the Mack Museum. They will tell you everything you want to know about your truck. https://www.macktruckshistoricalmuseum.org/contact-us/

  11. Do you know, or can you find out, what the paint code is used on your wheels ? Great job on the restoration !
  12. Yup will be making a new set of fenders as mine have been hacked beyond repair. Just thought I’d check here first if anyone had remains from a previous donor vehicle Sent you a direct msg w email to send pic of your hood to see if it’s in better shape than mine. Thx.
  13. Please send a pic of the hood - see if it’s in better shape than mine. 




  14. Before I get too far along in the restoration, does anyone have a set of decent fenders (and possibly a hood) for a ‘22 vintage AC ?

  17. I have a '22 MACK AC. The Engines are 50 hp, 4 cylinder, Gas engines with a magneto ignition system. They were produced by International Motors - who took on the MACK name in the mid 20'. The Cylinders are cast in pairs and have a Bore of 5" with a stroke of 6". In the front view the left of the picture is the water pump and the right is the mag. This one is hand cranked, but has a small generator on it. The side view shows the 2 double cylinder castings sitting on the aluminum block. I don't have this one running just yet, but will soon. Hopefully the pictures loaded correctly. PDG X 1922 MACK AC 1917 Ford TT w/ Holmes 285 Wrecker
