What a fantastic restoration... Are you going to show it anywhere as I'd love to see it in the flesh Skip.

Or how about some YouTube videos of it on the road?

Best regards

Thanks everyone for your comments, its nice to hear. It took a fair bit of doing but the next one will be easier and cheaper hopefully! Its the first one Ive done by myself so I learnt plenty and I will have a bit more of an idea on how to tackle the next one. For the Australian members that commented, yes I take it to a few shows, it went to Dubbo on the weeknd just past, and it will be going out to echuca in 3 weeks time for the ATHS show. Thanks again, Skip

Really nice looking job!

I can only dreaming about a day I'll can see something the same about my R -model.

Have experience to drive right-steering Nissan pick-up with manual tranny.

'Nice" addition was the shifter mounted on a steering column.

To my great surprize I hadn't any troubles on it.

I was fortunate enough to meet the owner, crawl all over this truck and the rest of his collection.

Awesome Horse! I love the interior color, always hated the tan color of the Rs  and Us interiors of the late 60s,70s! I hauled steel with! I think most Aussies and Brits are genetically evolved to be left handed or ambidextrous!

I had a 1967 R700 that had that same color interior so that color is Mack original and correct. It had a steel dash cab but with the steering wheel on the right, I mean left side.

Beautiful work and a gorgeous truck, something to be very proof of for sure, hope it look as good 5 years later:thumb:
