It's an F model. The headlights make it look like an IH Emeryville. Looks pretty good. The serial number plate should be o. The driver's door. If you post that someone will tell you what engine it had originally. Good luck. Mike.

Agree with Mike. F model but headlights have been changed to "non-Mack". Original F would have single headlights, not quad. S/N best place to start to determine engine.

It's a Western F model,if the engine is original it should be a 335 Cummins,as the 350 wasn't around yet.Depending on the frame,it should either be a FS or FL763LST. Western F models were availble with dual headlights on each side,but those there aren't factory.

Only Quad lights I've seen on R's were on a few Fire Trucks and Australian R's.

Yup,Hayward (Western) F-Models were available with quad headlights for a short time,and I agree with Mike,shuold be a 335 Cummins,all early Cummins blocks were based on the 355 series block casting. Nice straight western bumper BTW!.........................Mark

Yup, absolutely a Hayward F-Model. The dead-ringer give away is the aluminum step with the two cutout. Also the different style radiator cowl (bigger, for a bigger radiator for bigger engines......) Rjkwelding, if you send your serial number to the Mack Museum they will send you copies of whatever they have in the factory archives. You want to email it to Don Schumacker at the Museum. The wait is 8-10 weeks. Make sure you send a nice donation when you receive your box in the mail, you will understand why when you receive it.

My father ran a single screw Hayward F-Model with a 300 and a 5-speed with a 2-speed Rockwell rear. He worked for a trailer broker (Charles E Danbury) and delivered brand new trailers out of the Trailmobile factory in West Point, Pa. near Philly for years. Put about 700 large on the clock of that one (bought it used.) By the time he finished with it (rotted out) it had a million plus.

Wow thanks for all the info guys! I'll try to get the sn number as the truck is 3 hrs away ....and from what I seen there is little rust ..but he says the cab mounts are broke or? Because he says the throttle will stick open if you turn to the right ha ha ..I don't get the box or the lift ..was thinking of putting a flat bed on it or a fifth wheel ..

Damn not only an F model but a western that looks pretty solid from the pics, nice find, who cares about the headlights, anybody that has driven at night with the old single lights knows why they did it(they suuuuuck).
