In 1927, Dunn Coal & Oil, of Federal Street in Chicago, ordered a fleet of Mack AC Bulldog dumptrucks, of which this vehicle is the only entirely original survivor. Still fitted in its original, but faded red livery, with Dunn Coal & Oil lettering on cab and body, this AC includes its original winter cab, good pneumatic rubber, very solid sheet metal, and fine running condition.

Featured with its fleet in a national Mack advertisement in 1927, our AC is a pure survivor and absolutely appropriate for historic preservation. In a world where fresh paint seems to rule, the next owner of this vehicle will have a choice: rub out the years with compound and polish for a brilliant all-original survivor; or undertake a full cosmetic re-do. THIS TRUCK IS FOR SALE

Nice truck,if that's original it'd be a shame to restore it.

Barton Burch in Rochelle,IL had some old Dunn Coal Macks,one was a super rare CH tandem.Haven't seen the trucks for some time,so I don't know the current status,but they were in the same original condition as this AC.

Post away. It is a beautiful truck. I wish it was in my price range. I hope it goes to a good home and stays in the country. I'd love to see it in person some time.

Post all you want. The more pictures and information you can post the better for you. Let me know and I'll take pictures for you.

If you still have it in October, we would love to have it at the Gerhart show October 5th and 6th 2012!!!

The owner of this truck called me on Friday about this truck. Unfortunately is it out of my price range. I would love to have it. He only lives a few miles from me and invited me to come and see his collection. He owns the B67 Allied moving tractor trailer that has been posted on here in the past. He bought that from the place I got my A model and L model fire trucks. He tells me he has several AB's and AC's. I'll take pictures and report back.
