Great Job Alex.

Looks like it could be an Alumi-Bunk sleeper

Alumi-Bunk was the most common bunk mounted on Eastern Ontario sold trucks from Mack Canada. Able Body was I believe more common on the US trucks of that vintage.

Mik-Mak from Northern Ontario is another common one but wasn't as popular with the Eastern Canadian Mack dealers.

I had an Alumi-Bunk on the '85 R-dog.

Unfortunately no.

The Old double frame outer rail had eroded down to nothing and split with our beautiful Canadian climate. We worked that truck hard over the years hauling 120,000lbs gross to tandem van in its final days about a year and a half ago. We welded it a few times just to keep it operational for one of our drivers that refused to part with it.

As much as I wanted to keep the truck and slide some new rails in, running and maintaining multiple trucks would have put that old girl out in the field for a long time.

I had many offers to take the truck off my hands over the years. A gentleman from Florida who owns a heavy equipment sales company took it and wanted to make it into a float tractor after replacing the frame rail. I figured better someone making into a usable R-dog again then leaving it to rust till I found the time for it again. It went to a good home. :(

We are currently about to splurge on some older Mack Iron again. So i'm sure some R series cabs will be back in the fold within a few months. :thumb:

To add to your before collection Alex.......Fergus Truck show year 2000 and something....... Looks better now.
