The spirit of this prototype was to create an MH-based replacement for the FM.

That could very well be.  The visor looks like something from another world...

 

Mack Australia sunvisor.

Is this it?

It's my understanding that these were basically R Models with a Superliner hood that were assembled in Mexico, possibly by Transomex?

You can see it's got R model style tanks with the integral step as well. A bit like the Australian Superliner.

seems unlikely to me, the picture appears to have what is now the Mack museum in Allentown in the background. It doesn't seem likely that a brand new truck made in Mexico would find its way to Allentown.

I've seen that exact visor on some Mexi-Macks and  Aussie Macks.

Looks as though climbing up would be a challenge.

I remember a story about this MH or another RHD MH from a Mack ED&TC engineer.  When they drove the truck on the highways around Allentown, people would do a double take when seeing the passenger on the left side sitting with their feet up on the dash.
