Anyone interested in a 99 ch613 mechanics special?


Recommended Posts

I have a 99 ch613 that I am curious to see if there is any interest. It is the one that there have been discussions about here in the engines forum. I want to fix it but think it could be a while before I have time and hate to see the poor girl sit and rust. It has a 460 that had been rebuilt without the cam. Well....... now we are fairly certain it needs a cam and followers. This is a Gold Dog truck. 460, 18sp, and 3.86 mack rears, 50" flattop sleeper. The sleeper has about 8" of space between the front of the bed and the wall of the box. I do not currently have pictures but can get them if there is any interest. Back in the day it was a very nice truck. I am now the second and fourth owner. The Mack shops estimate between 7 and 8 thousand to fix it. I have a lot of paperwork to go with it. I believe I even have the original build sheet, but would have to check. Let me know if any of you are interested and I will either try to figure out how to post pics here or send to you in whatever fashion works best for you. Price is something we can discuss.

Update**************** I made the mistake of sitting in it while getting mileage off the odometer for the last owner yesterday. :blush:

I have been asked by a couple of you how much I want for it. Here's the answer for the rest of you as well.

I am asking $9000 but do have room to work with that. If nobody wants it bad enough to tell me what they feel it is worth to them, then next weekend it will be on the hook headed to the Mack shop to get fixed. (wish I had the time to tear it down myself just too much freight to haul and work on the H.D. list when not hauling freight) With what I have into it right now and the estimated bill for repairs, I will have a good truck for not a lot of money and I really liked this truck when I owned it before. I would be happy to sell it for a reasonable price, or fix and drive it once again. :banana:

Let me know if any of you are interested. If not, in a couple weeks it will be back up and healthy enough to make me smile (as well as putting some jack back in the bank).

Just to let anyone that may have been thinking about this know. I had it on the hook and dropped it off at the Vet. yesterday. Hopefully get it back all patched up and drinking diesel again by late in the week.

I am in the northern portion of Michigan's lower peninsula (approx. 50ish miles from the Mac. Bridge). The truck is currently in Detroit getting a new cam as well as the rear head. I don't think it will qualify as a mechanics special as of this coming week. I may still consider selling it, but it won't be near as cheap.

Well, new update. Headed to the Vet (Mack shop) tomorrow morning to get the CH back. I plan to get it back on the road over the next couple of weeks But; if someone wants it. I would be open to offers to reclaim my money. The vet bill is almost 10K, so don't think you will buy it for a song and dance. It would be real dollars (over 16k: what I currently have into it) or I will smile while driving it. Oh, and for those that think they might like to give it a boat ride, don't bother. It might not be a classic, but it is a Gold Dog!
