Rare for sure. JIM H  or Rich P will probably remember  old timer who lived in Blackstone MA had one on his property.  Forgot his name but nice old boy.  Last saw him at Macungie 3+ years ago.  Has since passed on and family cleaned up property.  In addition to the D had a bunch of AC's in various stages.

I think there is one sitting outside behind the Mack museum.

Sure didn't gain traction as well as the White 3000.

I remember seeing the one in Blackstone, MA; not up close but in the yard with the other Macks. At least one "D" model was used as a fire truck. According to John Malecky, 

in his book, "Mack Tilt Cab Fire Apparatus", a 1956 "D" model was built for Esso as an airport fuel tanker and was later converted into a foam carrier at Esso's Bayway Refinery in

Linden, NJ. In 1978 it was donated to the Readington Fire Company who used it until 1986.

I now own the D model that was at Ken Robinson’s. I purchased it at the Remilard auction in the summer of 2017. It’s on the list to be restored.

Here is the D model from behind the mack museum.  It is looking for a home.  There is a restored D model inside that is not.  John Chalmers also has one that is pretty rough.  Mike.

The deteriorating condition of that former Mack fleet MH daycab is a sin.

If I'm not mistaken it was on here and was on long term loan to them. Don't exactly recall and to many MH posts to look through.

The MH is on loan.  It belongs to the Malo brothers in Canada. They saved it from export and loaned it to the Mack Museum.  I believe it will be on its way to Canada before long.
