actual glider I believe. there wasn't a single hole drilled in the frame behind the cab. would almost be a shame to build it now. should go into the Mack Museum so Volvo can see ''what use to be done''

Bet the Volvo folks haven’t ever been to the Mack museum & probably want never go.

I always run I-81 down to I-70 to I-68 to I-79 to Rt 50 to Parkersburg. That's the shortest route with a tall speed limit.

 It is now about 15 miles from my house where it will "morph" into a tandem and go back to work!  Merc is a talented guy.

Seems to me as big sorry of converting that glider into a truck. Plenty of trucks down the street but an untouched glider isn't a thing you see every day.

Sure job and history are dfferent fields to play a game.

 

H67st - thanks for the pictures.

I was lucky observing the trucks in person one year back. This time I have to satisfy with screen images only.

The person making converting glider into a working truck is the same person who cut up the first R model fire truck.  Michael.

  1. Yes, George Sprowl did the red "Baby" B model.  I spoke with the folks that brought it to the show, and spoke to Mr. Sprowl just two days ago.  Steelman

Cut up? or modified?  It still is a "fire truck"-sort of😎?  or maybe I'm thinking of the wrong truck.
