Nice. Are you going to use tachographs or the standard speedo and tach?

The only old style dash I have to put back it in is a standard one.

I like the truck. The roll back is worth it's weight in gold!

I'd really hate to switch cabs no more than is wrong with this one.

I've seen a few early R's with those bezels under the gauges to angle them towards the driver. Was that a Mack accessory or something from Stewart Warner?

Love the angled gauges, haven't seem those for a very long time. You've sure gotten good usage out of that rollback.

Nice truck with good specs.A lot of freight outfits in the Northeast ran them like that Oneida,Fowler+Williams and others 673-711 with a tri-plex. Joe D.

I'm anxious to find out who this truck was built for,I know Louisa County bought it used,that's as far back as I've gotten.

The only dash like that that I'd seen in person was in a '68 R685T when I was a kid. It had the angled gauges and dual tachographs. It was also a darker color, possibly the olive drab if it were available as an option at the time. Having only seen the standard, mint green dashboards up to that point, I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Always thought those angled gauges were cool, only saw a few over the years.
