Thanks, I never knew they even had a California factory until I bought this truck. Do you happen to have the breakdown by year?

Also, does the Mack Historical Society keep records for these newer trucks like they did for the B-models?

Engine looks like an ENDT676, rated at about 283 hp. Engine tag should be on the valve cover or near the fuel pump... Likely has a 2 stick transmission: left stick is 1-5, right stuck is reverse, lo, direct.

I was thinking it was probably the 285 / 283 HP engine. I briefly looked for the tag yesterday. Lots of steam cleaning to do. It has a straight 5 speed with direct 5th gear. 

Previous owner said 59-60 mph was tops with current setup.

It may be an aluminum frame. I didn’t put a magnet on it and was painted kinda dark brown. 

I’m going to be on the hunt for a decent grill shell very soon. 

It’s hard working days are over. Shows and maybe toy hauling duties. 

Yes somewhat, that and I was a locomotive mechanic for 20+ years.

No individual years or specific model But if you contact the Mack Museum with your VIN and a nice donation (the staff is 100% volunteers) you will get a good pack of info from the purchase order to the complete specs of it and sometimes the original purchaser.

L - Light weight components

Thanks for the LST breakdown. It makes sense now. 

It’s been awhile but I actually previously had received all of the information about my 1953 B-model from the museum. I was very impressed with the package they sent. 

I’ll reach out to them again for the SL.
