Mack's V8-Powered "C" Series - Comin' On Strong


Recommended Posts

Ah, yes! The C!

Introduced in '63, I believe.

Not a bad idea...short BBC. Good engine options.

Might have lasted longer if the U & R hadn't come out in '65. The U was aimed pretty much at the same market, I believe.

Still, seeing a C in person is pretty cool. It's just plain different! Does have some interesting character.

Croton-On-Hudson, NY Fire Department converted what was a oil or septic rig to its original tanker which eventually went on to serve Pocantico Hills Fire Department a few miles south.

Found pic on google. Credit to original photographer.

E.J. Kelly would it. From what im told they were hiding up on a side road up there somewhere. Theres a lot of hidden treasures up in that part of that state that you would never know was there. Fields full of antique machinery on dirt roads with cranes, dozers, trucks, etc...

General Ike H.B.Sproul was located in Scranton,Penna. They are in Clarks Summit now and have a very short wheelbase Superliner V-8 I think. Their C-Model is owned by a rigging crane company on Keyser Avenue Scranton. I do not know if related to RC Sproul. I cannot think of name now.Their was a C-Model V-8 in Craigslist or Truck Paper in Oregon tandem with tank on back in the last year.I do not know if it sold. Joe D.

I never new the C model fenders swung out. C Model was a beautiful cross between a L and B model. Would have continued to make the accountants happy. This was the perfect answer to the White 9000 A car cab. Only speculating but the C model if continued may have outsold the U model. Sorry Vinny.
