    1975 RS685LT

    I did a double take when I saw your post. I looked at that truck a month ago. Never thought to ask if it was for sale. I was visiting a buddy who has a business down the street from where it was parked. Nice clean truck! Congrats

    1950's Mack LTL aluminum rear spring stanchions

    I don't have any cab mounts currently but I do have the mold to make them. They are reproductions made from an unrepaired original. Even have the correct part number. They have to be machined for width to fit between your frame rails and the mounting holes drilled. If you're interested I'll contact the foundry and get a current price. Last batch were about $1200 ea.
  5. I've been looking for one of these for a while for my dad. Found this one on Ebay. Didn't realize until I got it in my hands that it's a very early R700 Western. Drop center bumper and the hinged lower part of the hood gives it away. Strange since the date on the back is copyright 1976. The truck is not quite that old, 1971.

    LT-RV

    I've seen that LTRV as well. When I sold my LJSWX the buyer came down from Canada and hauled all the way back on a 2 axle tilt trailer. Guy by the name of Ross Baird from Enderby BC bought it. He wanted to know if he could drive the LJSWX back to Canada! Quite an adventurous guy.

    Mack ED for sale

    $750. Engine has been open and in the weather for years, rust around the windshield frame, lots of good parts. In northern CA. PM for more info. Brad
  10. 865 or 866. Likely the later if the engine is original to the truck. If the data plate is still on the valve cover that would supply all the details.

    Not seeing it is good, not hearing it is even better. Getting harder to find.

    new LTL cab crossmember

    That's for the crossmember as it is in the picture. The ends will have to be machined to whatever width your frame is now and all the holes drilled.
  14. Since I started looking for parts for my LTLSW 10 years ago I've never run across one of these or even heard of one for sale. About 5 years ago I borrowed one from a friend who had disassembled his LTL for restoration with the intention of making a reproduction. I got the project restarted a couple months ago with some encouragement from a fellow BMT member who now owns and is restoring the donor truck and wants the original back. After years of thinking about it I finally got the finished product. Brand new castings of the LTL aluminum cab mount crossmember complete with part number. If there is any interest I do have the ability to make a few more. Not cheap though, $1300 a copy. I'm sure I've wasted money on more ridiculous things but I can't recall exactly what they are at this point. They are beautiful though. I think I have a better idea what my wife sees when she looks at jewelry now.
