Mack Trucks to Appear on National Geographic Channel's America's Lost Treasures


Recommended Posts

Mack Trucks will appear this week on National Geographic Channel’s new series America’s Lost Treasures. The episode, featuring a fully restored 1963 MACK® B-813 model, airs Wednesday, July 25 (9-10 P.M. ET/PT).

During production, America’s Lost Treasures host Curt Doussett and the truck’s owner visited the Mack Trucks Historical Museum at the Mack Customer Center in Allentown, Pa. to meet with museum curator Don Schumaker for an assessment of the truck as they sought to discover whether the vintage bulldog was truly a lost treasure.

“The truck is immaculate. By far, this has to be one of the most perfect restorations,” said Schumaker, who estimated only about 30 of the 930 B-813 models originally produced still exist and are restored. “You almost have to look at something like this as being priceless.”

This classic Mack B-813 model is certainly an American icon, but is it a lost treasure? Tune in to National Geographic Channel Wednesday, July 25 (9-10 P.M. ET/PT) to find out.
