Anyone Have Pics Of N-model Cabovers

Recommended Posts

yea, i knew it was a firetruck. i think they were both 68's. a B68 and an N68. both still had big gas engine 2 mpg's in them. that is another reason i couldnt see the HIGH price tag that use to be on both of these trucks. Matt. use to see them for sale, never have seen either of them show up anywhere. in my opinion Bob Daub was the best thing for the old Mack restoration group, even drove to shows with parts in two old Macks. was a sad day when i found out they were sellin out the dealership. i heard Bob wanted to keep the B models parts business from the reast of the business and his family would not let him.

The ex-Tidewater N was sitting roadside for sale up until last year. This year it was gone. It was getting rusty and somewhat picked over when I saw it last.

I don't know if it was still original but it would have started out with a Mack Thermodyne EN 540 gas engine and a Mack TR 671 5 speed transmission.

BUDD built the Ford 'C' cabs, but sold the raw stampings to MACK. MACK added their own floor stamping, dash and a few other things and assembled the N cab entirely them selves. . . no FoMoCo involved at all.      Paul

I also need to correct my statement about the Tidewater truck. The fire truck body was gone by ythe time Tidewater sent it to Matt to be restored. Apparently the VFD moved it to the next truck.

Matt told me that Mack, Ford and a couple of other builders all used the Budd cab at one time.
