If you search the forums I think you will find some pics of Campanella's trucks.

Nice truck; are you working it or is it a hobby truck?

Campanella Corp. was a big contractor and materials provider here in the New England states. Originally they were Campanella & Cardi Construction before the two families split in 1968. Campanella went out of business in the mid-80s but Cardi Corporation is still a major player in the construction and materials business in Rhode Island and Connecticut (and runs a big fleet of Macks new and old).

C&C ran mostly Mack with a few Autocars. Ls, Bs, Hs, Rs, DMs, you name that Mack model, they had it. I see your truck is still in Palmer Paving livery. Palmer Paving Corp. out of Palmer, Massachusetts is still in business as well and maybe they can help with some of the info you desire.

If you are on Facebook, there are plenty of groups relating to old Macks and antique construction equipment such as the Historical Construction Equipment Association and the Rockbusters. The Rockbusters group is made of primarily northeast US members and has lots of info and photos related to Campanella. Good luck!

I have an R719 that I restored. I assume yours has the twin turbo V8 as well?
