DRUMMER35501 Posted November 8, 2006 Share Posted November 8, 2006 Hey guys, I am looking at buying a 1961 b61 and was wondering what a fair price would be. The truck has been painted but trust me, it will have to be done again. The engine sounds great, it has some extra engine parts for rebuilding in the future, and some small interior window trim but the in cab liners are gone, the wire harness is TOAST for the most part and the tires are round with some air in them but that is about all I can say about them! It has 2 axle seals leaking and probably going to have to do a rear brake job.It also has several rust through spots around the window channels on the left and right door, it has some rust through in the floor pan but they seem to be small and all the window guides and tracks will have to be replaced in both doors. I would not be afraid to drive it home which is about a 4 hour trip except for the tires and no lights of any kind. Just curious!I would also like to know if Mack ever had any of these model or year trucks that offerd Budd wheels instead of the old Dayton. I know alot of places I couldn't get these Daytons changed if I wanted to. Does anyone know what would interchange with these hubs to place Budd wheels on them?Wiring harness: Does anyone know where I could find a wiring harness for this truck or would I be better off to build my own and if so where could I find the diagrams, how hard is it and where can I find the original looking black braided wire to use.Rust through around the window channels. Is this normal in these trucks and what is the best way to handle fixing it?Rust in the floor pan, is there a pan to buy on this truck or does anyone know where I could find some advice on how to fix the floor?Thanks guysB61fan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
