Truck Picture Blues!

Recommended Posts

I gave Teresa Moore some Mack truck pictures to scan and send in,but she couldn't get her scanner to function properly (couldn't get it to work either) so I have no pictures in yet.I can scan them and e-mail them one at a time myself so yesterday when I went to Moneta,Va.to pick up a load of treated lumber I stopped and took some pictures of an A-40 Mack sitting in a field,and when I got back to the shop I took one of my concrete mixer to finish the roll of film.I took the film to Wal-Mart today to get it developed and their printer was out of comission too,so I can't even send those in! Someday,though...soon I hope.

Great pictures. Never saw a paint scheme like that, especially back in the 60's.

What engine, transmission, and rear end ratio does she have?

was that color sceme your design or was that a companies color sceme

? Pretty neat, not to knitt pick but you need a set of bulldog mud flaps(like what Barry sells) in place of the car quests! Nice truck tell us more about it

Thanks guys-The truck has a 673 thermodyne in it and a quadruplex trans,I have no idea what ratio the rears are.Top speed is about 55 mph,but I suppose if I stood on it long enough I might get 57 or 58 out of it.The cab was red when I got it,but I had the fenders painted black because I liked the way they looked on Diesel Gypsy's B-61,and was going to have just the top of the hood painted black too,but it has some dents in it and I thought they would be more noticable if I did.I painted the mixer drum at home,in the yard,with rollers,brushes,and hardware store implement paint.The stripe didn't turn out exactly like I wanted-I wanted the corkscrew look,couldn't really afford A professional to do it,and that's what I ended up with,but all in all not too bad looking I guess! And thanks A lot Barry!
