What cab do I have ?

Recommended Posts

I just bought an old Mack truck b-61 series cab for a ratrod project. It has a vacuum wiper pump still on the fire wall. I want to register it but I would like to find out what year is was made. I have pictures of it including the serial number from a plate on the passenger door. Is there anyone who can help me with this ?

Need a photo of the tag to get a general idea.  The photo you posted just shows it is a B model and a tractor unit  Paul

The plate on the door just says model B-61 T. The serial number is 47255. That is the only info on it.

Right click on the picture.

Click on "edit"

Click on "compress pictures"

Click on "compress for documents"

Click on okay

Then, now smaller, it should upload.

Send your serial number to the Mack Museum in Allentown PA and get the total history package on your truck..

47255 would be most likely a 1964

yup with no door hinge cover plates and that garbage signal light switch puts it at least 1963 and newer

My B615 had that switch and found a brand new one years ago to replace old. If I think of it, i'll look tomorrow to see if name on it.

My B-673 has that inoperable switch and was built in 1962. Don't remember if it has the hinge covers or not.

The remainders of the switches have "Yankee" imprinted into them.
