  1. That's cool, How much did they pay ya for doing that?
  2. Nice Truck Albert, but But was is the total of the resto from start to finish? Is it something that most people can afford to do? I am in the same position with a couple of thr cf's that I have/ I am being told it's not worth spending tens of thousands restoring a truck that is only worth $ 10,000 or less. Whats your opinion? Take care, and again GREAT looking truck.. George
  3. Thank you all for such great ideas and comments. I do like that R model, but making a cf or even a MC fire truck with a nice enclosed cab would just as good for what i am looking for. I would love to see inside pics of that R model. George
  4. Thanks Reuhlz, I would love to find one of the crew cabMacks, but they only made 5 for fdny. I need something to pull a 50' Landoll trailer. I agree, Mack would charge a bunch $$$$ for a special order, but that also would be a one of a kind Mack. Take care. George
  5. Hello, My name is George and I am fairly new to the Mack Forums, I mostly collect and restore Cf Mack Firetrucks. But I was thinking of buying a new tractor and Landoll trailer to haul some of my trucks/Toys around instead of driving them long distances. But I am really needing a crew cab type cab due to people always wanting to go with me to parades and stuff. The problem is if I buy a regular day cab or sleeper cab I can only take one other person with me to things. Now I know International makes a crew cab truck, but can you order a crew cab from Mack?? say a new Granite body style? I woul
  6. Hello, My name is George and I have several, several good mack cf parts from pumpers and a recent bad scope purchase. I have sets of air horns, door spot lights,I have complete doors with Mack logo mirrors. I'll check on the bumper brackets. But shoot me a private email and maybe a pic of your damage. I even have nearly new all aluminium compartments from E-one that will fit your truck if needed. I might have ALL your parts needed for your repair. Talk to you soon, George
  7. Hello Albert, Google or check the Federal motor carriers site. I just went through the new federal license giudelines. People Driving a fire truck is NO LONGER excempt from CDL's except when driving to a fire and then returning back to station. Any other driving of firetrucks go by thier weight class. Even if a fire dept. drives a firetruck to a parade, to get fuel or any other running , the driver needs a Commercial OR Noncomercial drivers license for that weight class. It is the same with rv's. But if you ask any rv dealer they will not tell you the truth because they want to make a sale. A
  8. Hi Don, Here are some pics of that piece you need for your cf. Send me a private email with your wishes of buying it.
  9. Hi Bulldogboy, I have decided against some of my close friends advise to scrap them both. I have decided to take alot of the parts from the Lynnfield scope and use them on my other Mack scope( Origanally Wahntaue Ny.) to make a kick ass running Mack scope that can be driven ANYWHERE in the U.S.A. to any Mack show or Fire muster without worries of never making my destination. Besides those parts that I need, I have had several private request from people needing parts to either restore or keep thier CF Mack running. As everyone with cf's know that parts are getting harder and harder to fi
  10. Hi Terry, What is your dream using a CF cab? maybe I can help. Do you have a cf that you are trying to re do? I have had a few interest for the complete boom, and I am going to keep it whole atleast untill next week, but there is a guy that wants to make a bar out of the basket. He said he had seen a pic of one a guy did on the Arealscope sight on facebook. I have to say it does look pretty cool if you have the room and the money to do that. Send me a private message if you like.
  11. To anyone intersted, The Lynfield scope is going to be parted out instead of being completly crushed. I have had several private messages from people wanting parts for thier cf macks. A mack mechanic came to the house over the weekend and found SEVERAL problems that he recomended not fixing due to cost. The injector pump is shot and does not have enough pressure to keep motor running,there is oil leaking from the turbo, the radiatoris almost commplety rusted through, which is probabally why I used 3 gal of water on the trip home. and after he found and read the aerial inspection report t
  12. Thank you Terry T, I will keep that in mind in the future, It's my fault that I puchased that truck. Everyone has been there seeing a truck for sale and just wanting it no matter what. As far this 1958 fwd. I am glad to hear that your fire fighter friend with the 1 leg was able to get around great after his accident, I am however not as lucky, I am not trying to use my dissability as a excuse for bad judgement in truck buying either. As far as getting on a plane you can be a totally parralized and still be able to get onto a plane and travel, and Yes even drive a Automatic car or truck as
  13. Well Guy's it's like this, A friend told me about this truck in mass for sale for $6,500. I looked at the pics , called the guy Who by the way is a Mack collector and truck salesman. I would rather not say his name on here but he has the FIRST R-model Mack firetruck and cut it up to make a pick up truck out of it.. Anyway the truck was not shifting into hi range so he took it to a mack dealer across from his house to have fixed, (a buddy buddy deal) they told him that they could not fix it and they were to busy, so he took the truck home and tried fixing it himself. I flew up on Monday, The t
  14. Not interested in any more neg. comments from people that don't know the whole story and just make judgemental comments.
  15. Hi, I will get some pics up soon. I know 22.5 wheels won't fit on 20" hubs. I am wanting to know if I can change out the whole rear end that already has 22.5's on it that will run at hi- way speeds, I'mgetting tired of people giving me the finger because I am holding up traffic making a funeral procession. OR what can I do to make this truck go faster? I will get the rear end ratio asap.
