When did the Mack DM get a galvanized cab and would it fit a 74?


Recommended Posts

I know someone with a still strong running 74 Mack DM 600 with a 237 twin stick.  The cab and mounts are bad and he is seeking a replacement. I remember seeing on here that the R and DM models got galvanized cabs in the 80s. When did the Mack DM get a galvanized cab and what year galvanized cab would fit this 1974 Mack DM?

I believe mack started galvanizing parts of the cabs in the mid 80's, I put a 85 DM cab and hood on a 1970 frame, with no problems.    terry:MackLogo:

I think 1985 was the first year offering of the galvanized cab. Most 1986 and newer cabs I have seen are galvanized. The 1986 cab I have on a 1977 R model was a slip fit. I also have a very clean 1978 cab, and a 1981 cab which are both galvanized and scheduled for project trucks in the shop.

Thinking the galvanizing was an option earlier than 1985 as my 1978 cab I removed from a wrecked fire truck with 24,000 on the clock and it was original to the apparatus.

I also incorrectly stated the 1981 cab year. It is a 1991, also from a low mileage wrecked truck.
