The more I think about it,the more I'm leaning to repower a bmodel and making the bed for it.Or take the easy way out and buy one that is already done if one ever comes up for sale.

I like the yellow one at the top of the topic and the gray one with the spokes. Both have a good stance and don't look funny due to scaling and such. Well done for sure. That would be a good model for a kit "truck" if someone like factory five was interested. I bet you could sell a bunch of them if they were done right. I'd convert a dodge/cummins for sure.

Talked with George Sprowl just yesterday great person with all the knowledge and willing to share it with others.If anyone is looking for one of his trucks he has one in his yard that he is willing to let go.We talked about making it into a b87 front to go along with b87 I m redoing.Would love to have him do it but have to get the full size truck done first.IWe talked about just repowering an old b and up eating the power train.Like I said he's a super nice guy to talk with.

Don't know the owner of this one, from northeast PA, it shows up at Jacktown Farmers Fair quite often. Awesome craftsmanship a merger of Dodge Cummins chassis and B Mack body. Has the dashboard and interior from Dodge pickup. Maybe some of you know the owner and can shed more light.

I know I posted this B on another thread way back some where, but here it is again. It was at the 2011 ATHS show in South Bend IN.

I think the truck was out of KY.

If I read the sign right in front of the truck it is owned by got-a-go Inc and was built by crock custom trucks and I think it says Caldwell ohio. If that's true that isn't far from me at all. But I can't find a website. Maybe a phone call is on order lol

Is this the one that had the red fenders? Did you keep the 707 or swap it out? Mike

yes, the fenders have since been painted. I have not changed the engine yet and i'm not shure if i will. It runs great.

Might as well leave the 707 in. I might make a similar truck out of a B 85 tractor. It has rear fenders. It would just need sides and a tailgate for the bed. Mike

Chris B,

A local wheel specialist hooked me up with special centerless super single wheels from accuride.

I wonder if anyone knows where I can get a MACK logo stamped in a steel plate for the tailgate of my truck.

I believe Allmacks truck has what I'm looking for.

I am only in the planning stage,but have been given it a lot of thought to do a B81 pickup conversion.It would go along well with my full size B87.The question I have for all of you is I would like to put smaller wheels and tires on it,what does it take to do this?

Most of the conversions I have seen use another chassis such as a one from a ton pick up truck to place the body on resulting in a smaller tire size and the ability to use a variety of wheels.

I don't know if it would be possible to use an original chassis and at the same time make it look like a smaller truck. The ones that I have seen that use the original chassis end up being pretty massive.
