ATL Mack

For the 1970-1980 period, The CF Mack is most desireable, then R, then MR. Engines- the best would be a 350 HP turbo w/automatic and all Macks from that period will have a waterous pump. The best pumper body would be Full Mack Pumper body, however most other brands are available as Mack refurbs, Pierce, E1, American Lafrance etc. all have been refurbed on Mack chassis. Look for rust at the cab behind the front wheels and wheelwell, above the rear wheel and compartments just in front and behind the rear wheels. 300 HP is a good engine and the 237 is also good but not much on power. Some cabs are canopy cabs, some were built like FDNY 4 door enclosed cabs, and some were refurbed to look like the FDNY cabs.

Post pictures of trucks you are looking at and there are members on this site that can help you evaluate the truck.
