  4. That's neat that they are still in business.I see the newer trucks are a off white which is what my trucks Fire wall is yet. I wonder if they had any other color on the old Mack B model trucks? Sent from my SM-G930R4 using Tapatalk
  5. Hello Al Thanks for the info about the ATHS! hope to attend some shows this summer. I live by Janesville, you happen to know of anyone with b model parts for sale in this area? Sent from my SM-G930R4 using Tapatalk
  6. Hello Al, Thanks, I was able to determine with the help of the Mack museum that it originally was sold to Eldredge Mack of Peoria IL. And they sold it to Mertel Concrete in IL. Looks like it stayed in IL as a concrete truck till the early 80's and was then sold to a Farm in Indiana. That's interesting about the B 53's in this area. Take care Tobin Sent from my SM-G930R4 using Tapatalk

  10. Thanks, I have a big wood Chris Craft of the same vintage I plan to pull, and some day the wife wants a 5th wheel camper. I plan to find a old low boy for the boat and would also utilize it for my tractor and my snow plow truck for shows. All my toys are old, keeps it affordable and I like old stuff!

  11. Thanks! I have a big old Tulsa winch I plan to put on it along with a Holland 5th wheel. I'm trying again with the photo. Sent from my SM-G930R4 using Tapatalk
  12. Hello all, I've already gotten a ton of great info from reading on this great site! This last year I fulfilled a dream and purchased a 1965 B-53. I plan to restore it as a tractor and put it to work pulling toys. I learned from researching on here it has a 673 C engine and TRQ 7220 quadraplex . So far I removed the dump box and am now in the process of replaceing the input shaft seal on the Sheppard powersteering box. Next will be the decision about the brakes, currently has great working wedge brakes ,but the linings thin and would like spring brake for parking. I'm having trouble posting photos but will work on that for the future. Thank's !
