  1. The brackets for the wind deflectors look factory installed? It is the short bunk version and measures 70". it is also a 1961 model. When I get it off the trailer and can get the cab up I will send more pics. I had 3 other G models including one that had the grill on the left side for the air intake. The silver cab was from a G 77 also and was just like new. Note the red cab is about 10" shorter than the silver cab too. On the 61 I just got there is a factory storage box right behind the door for the cab jack.
  2. Brought home a G77 one owner .........Nice truck that came with a 300 cummins. Note the frame modification made at the factory for the blower. There are brackets on the cab? is that where the mirrors should be in lieu of the door mount?

    New Baby

    Manders Diesel in Minn. had 2 of these back in the late 80's. I was tempted at that time to buy one. I don't know if one or both are still at his yard or not? They both were for sale.
  4. There was a White like that at the ATHS show in Fontana, CA. It was really a sharp truck and I knew something was different about it based on it's posture.
  5. is Tryon still a broker out that way for steel haulers?
  6. I believe it was posted on this site a CL ad in AZ showed one for sale.
  7. Thanks to everyone for the information. Mike, I would love to get some stick time in but can't commit at this time. Thanks for the generous offer! Rodeway Inn looks great and the hint of good old PEEA Italian food suits me just fine. I was born and grew up in the New Castle, PA area. Doug do we contribute/pay for the clam bake at that time? let me know and put down 2 of us.
  8. I have a couple projects going in Maryland and DC so I am shipping my Harley back and riding up to the show with a good friend. It will be the first time I have been to the show so really looking forward to it. Thought about running the big Aussie Mack out but it is too damn high to ship on any of our lowdecks so I'd have to drive both ways.. what hotel is a good one?
  9. Saw that yellow fire truck heading east on I-80 in Truckee, CA this past weekend!
  10. Anyone know who makes this type of exhaust? it was popular on Detroit V8's too. Note that the diamond plate is just a cover over the baffle.
  11. I know this is a much discussed topic in the past but..........again, who makes the headers for the V8 and do they add that much to the performance? How about the sound?
  12. if you go to hanks and follow the ATHS truck shows for the early Brooks ones it in there.
  13. Who'd ever buy this on eBay ?? the traitor.htm
  14. No it was the same color
  15. Mike, It was a BM and was sold to an ATHS member in New Mexico............can't remember his name.
  16. I would assume many of you either knew or met Bob Brown over the years. He was a truck collector before it was a hobby and also worked for Mack trucks for many years. He was a mechanical genius and could do anything. I was fortunate to end up with his Mack AP conversion. I put this on the hood today.
  17. I like how the fuel tanks are behind the cab and just steps under the doors. And like a lot of west coast trailers you can see the kingpin setting is maybe 18" and you cannot move the trailer forward to cover the front duals. My Trailmobile which was a west coast is set up like that. I would seem to be more for a single axle but that was not common at all in the west.
  18. This is currently for sale on ebay as a slide........
  19. I have 3 daughters and love'm a lot.............. do it.
  20. That is one of the ones I had! Went to a great young guy and I am happy to see that he is enjoying it!!
  21. I learned something new too for Mack trivia!! And when Superdog says it is the first time he has seen something to do with a Mack...........it just has to be a rare one.
  22. I am only acting as a pass through in case someone on this site could benefit from this: Dan Vest at 541-659-5209 is parting out an R 685ST. I know the engine and rears are gone. Not sure of condition or anything else.
