My 3. Today ended bath time for the 3. It's real hard keeping them clean this time of the year. Got to take care of them if I want them to take care of me.

unfortunately all the Estes trucks I have seen around here lately have lost their cool colors and gone to 'garbage truck white' with just red wheels and a yellow stripe

The Estes terminal next door to where I work has some new KW's, all with the old stripes. Maybe the units you saw were bought used or part of an acquisition?

Looks like a hand fabricated wrecker setup,good job though! Love the B73! Only truck I don't like is the midliner abortion,probably with the backasswords Renault Shifter.Had the thrill of delivering one a couple hundred miles to the Ryder shop in Pittsburgh.Don't believe they've earned the right to have the Mack name!

Yeah i agree id say newer cab also tan dash doesnt match them older style hubs. And looks like a DM frame also. 

Definitly a DM frame, must be a pretty early engine or whole running gear, has the old belt driven power steering pump.    terry

Some one did a really nice job either fitting the radiator unit or replacing the WARD 79 steel nose.

Ok, so we all agree that that U is not a U and maybe not even a DM....but what do we make of this setup?

They seem to be municipal / state Highway Dept. specs with the big radiator.
