Very touching story, wish I still had some of my old iron around. I live about 300 miles from Bismarck, will keep an eye out for any E model parts.

Yes, awesome story! I'm  not too far out of your area and I will also keep my eyes open for parts.

What an inspiring story!  You did such a great job relating the role this truck has played in your family's  history.   Best of luck on your journey with Gus #9 and please keep us informed of your progress.

Great story and picture. The trucks look brand new or super well kept.

Grandma said this was the first week that he had them.  He mandated that each truck was washed and shined after each shift, so that is probably the reason Gus #9 is in better shape than many working trucks of that era.  I will be posting more pictures of the fleet as grandma shares them!

Thanks everyone!

Hey Tracy, there is a '47 Mack on Craigslist in Bemidgi Mn. I'm not sure how to post the link but it might have some parts you need.
