gilby74 Posted April 26, 2013 Share Posted April 26, 2013 (edited) Hi my name is Lindsay and I am a farmer in the South Island of New Zealand. We fatten lambs for the market and also grow milling wheat malting barley and several other small seed crops. In my spare time I also race sprintcars at the local speedway track.I have always wanted a MACK of my own to fix/restore, and finally found one that suited what I wanted to do.It is a 1978 R685RS that was origionaly built for the NZ army as a dumper. I was able to get the origional build sheet and it has still got all the matching numbers and has only done 185000km from new. Here are a couple of photos the day I picked it up and I will post some more when my camera gets back from holiday.At this stage I am thinking of doing an origional restoration as there seem to be cenoug custom trucks around and I quite like the origional look.Thanks Lindsay.
