Set Back Axle F700?

Recommended Posts

I saw this posted on hanks site by a fellow in Israel. I don't ever recall there being a set back axle F700 then again I have seen an SBA MH in Australia. Oh and the headlights are in the bumper because of Israeli law to keep the light from blinding other vehicles.


What America needs is less bull and more Bulldog!

IIRC, towards the end of the F models production in the U.S. Mack announced the availability of a set back front axle option and a high roof double bunk sleeper option too. I remember one U.S. trucking magazine tested the set back axle F, but I've never seen one on the highway. I have seen pictures of them in Europe- perhaps they were all exported? As for the MH with set back front axle, the british "Truck" magazine had a photo of one parked at the Macungie plant, but I've never seen one on the road either.

The Set-back axle F was tested but was never released in the States. There is a photo of a white FM in the rear of the Mack Trucks Photo Album by Warth. There is also a photo of a White FM with blue stripes that was painted by an aquaintance when they were being tested. It was pictured in a book somewhere, I just can't put my finger on it right now. It is an extremely nice looking truck, I'd take one!
