Mack MH Freedom Series trucks

Recommended Posts

I am working on research project to identify the 200 trucks built as part of the Mack Freedom series Limited Edition.

If you own one or know anyone who currently owns a MH Freedom series could you contact me?

Thanks

few years back one went to an auction. it went thrue a truck 'dealer'. When i contacted them they told me it was srapt and I ask for remaining parts. the answer was nothing. I drove 350 miles to get theyre, and it was true. I was almost sure the cab would still be there but I guess they ran over it with their dozer just for the fun of doing it. it was a sad day.

Were they all black? I thought a MH Liberty would be gray like the Superliner. I think it would look sharp in gray with dark gray/black Liberty decal.

From the sales material I have have they were were all Mack "Phantom Gray, metallic, with red accent striping and the stylized Statue of Liberty decals". The frame is Imron black.

The big push was for front to back, all parts and labor warranty (not tires and filters), for 3 years/ 300,000 miles. "...virtual freedom from repair costs..."

Everything I found so far shows ordered in spring/ summer 1986 and delivered in October, November, December 1986 as 1987 model year.

Thunderdog has gotten me one VIN, but I'm still looking for more #'s

There here somewhere! I wanted them to put up in my toyroom,but still haven't unpacked a good many things from when we moved (5 years ago!) i'm sure they'll turn up eventually. I sent away for a promotional package from Mack when they came out,had a nice brochure and a B&W 8"X 10" picture IIRC.....................Mark

Don't know if you are still researching Mack Freedom series Limited Edition, but I have one and was wondering the same thing, how many are left out there.

Mine is a 1987 RW713 Freedom Edition day cab.  Picture attached.

 

What a beautiful truck you have!

There's another Liberty RW with a big sleeper in the Netherlands and as I was told and if the memory serves 4 Superliners more were known existing. MH's is another story, have no idea of.

Thanks, Josh
