Mack-Built Trailers and Semi-Trailers


Recommended Posts

I have a mack built 4 wheel trailer used to haul a 3" antiaircraft gun in World War 1. Don't have the gun, but the trailer has AC rear wheels, and is extremely heavy. It has the old style rectangular brass tags that said Mack in script, International Motor Company, and a space for a serial number. Bought it 38 years ago from a farmer. His dad had purchased it as war surplus in the 1920's. It is exactly like the unit pictured on page 165 of John Montville's book, "Mack". Don't think it made it to Europe. Twenty five miles up the road from me, at Quantico, Va. USMC base, they had a couple of these for several years. They had pictures of them at the old museum they had at the airbase on the river before they built the new museum a few years back.

How 'bout a BX with a Mack-built "aerodynamic" trailer...full of Ballantine?

Freulich farms in Huntington had a E models with Ballantine logos on them as storage for years and would never part with them. Still there as for 2010. Paul
