Have a neighbor settling Grampa's estate. Grampa was a logger who was partial to Model B Macks.

There are five complete trucks; two I think seven series (aluminum radiator tanks, long hoods) set up as loggers,

Two B61's (one a dump truck the other a logger) and a B63 logger.

Also they have quite a few usable parts; a cab, fenders, doors, two complete rebuilt diesel engines. and probably much more.

They need help to determine values and to find homes for these good old trucks.

These trucks were driven to the spot where they sit sometime in the last 10 to 20 years and are stil in in their work clothes.

Tires all still aired up. Probaly fresh batteries and fluids would have them all running.

How best to advertise? what kind of value?

I am interested in the B63 and would like to help them get the others sold at fair prices.

Any Advice??

One more question: where is there information about what the diferent Model B designations mean?

Farm Dog what part of the USA are these trucks in? as this will also affect price due to weather and road treatments

That's pretty interesting.

You can find the info you need in the Wiki section of this site.

For a way to offer them for sale you may start from posting in the "trucks for sale" on here.

Maybe not the most efficient place to get rid of them but shure the perfect one to find good homes.

Being used for logging, I'm guessing they are on the west coast?

These trucks are in western Oregon. No road salt used here.

Beside six Macks there is this Diamond T Fire Engine.

Thanks for the tip about model info on Wiki.

Owners are digging up titles for specifics on models.DSCN0484.JPG

I am here in Southwest Washington. If the trucks are not too far away I could make a trip over and look them over some. I am no pro by any means but might be of some help.

Good spy work!

That COE is WW2 Autocar or International with Timken axles but seeing the pic I'd say someone put L-model cab on it.

Good choice of B's, hope somebody will keep any as a treasury.

That is quite an early B60. 69th off the line. It would be a 1953.

both of those yellow dump trucks look pretty solid. the different color log truck apprears to be a B615? doesn't look to have the fender filler panels and the yellow truck seems to have shorter filler panels? maybe its the angle of the pics
