I Wish Someone Would Buy This And Work With It:

Recommended Posts

I'd love to install a 26' rollback body onto this and use it. Always have liked the looks of the "L", and "A" series Macks. However, if I drag another truck home I'm afraid my life would be cut very short.

That is one nice truck. Now all I need is a bigger piece of property and a low boy.

I read somewhere about that truck being used as a water truck at a local dirt track.

I'd read that too but can't remember where. I've seen the truck advertised in a few different places.

Ebay , it was used for the last 20 or 30 years as a water truck. Im sure the frame is rusty. That was what I was worried about. Jay

If it does have a 672, then it has its original Mack-Lanova diesel engine. A very rare find! Very nice truck.

Rob i think i see your name on the doors.

Ya know, "Momma" really does like her A-40 and this "L" series looks so close I may be able to swing it. Of course if I'm wrong, "I'LL SWING".

The LF reminds me of one I drove in 1956 or '57. It was a 10-wheel dump with a Mack-Lanova and a duplex. Does anyone remember Cooney Bros. out of Tarrytown, New York? Any interest in swapping a few stories about those old days?

Apparently not very interested in selling it. I called friday afternoon and evening, saturday a couple of times and sunday before we left Hunter to come home. We were only 40 miles or so from it and just kept getting told to call back in a few hours. :( Paul

We got a live person only taking messages while her boss was out working. I still got a week left of forced vacation, so I'll try a few more times and send over my cousin. Paul

Those people are nuts. My thoughts with the drum is after I have it lifted off is to quarter it, empty it and re weld it. It will never be functional just look the part. Paul
