1693 powered R models

Recommended Posts

Well after recently acquiring a western 1693 powered R700, it got me thinking just how many were actually built? I've read all the old posts I can find on here, but i didn't really find much as to an answer. I know Robs truck is rarer, being an aluminum frame RL, but there couldn't have been too many more built. I can figure there was atleast 3 more. I was told that my truck had a twin, but it caught fire and burnt up. Also, one of the previous owners had sent away to the mack museum for the history, but the paperwork he recieved doesnt match my truck. He was sent paperwork for 2 other trucks.  I'll include pictures , maybe someone will recognize the name? Also, the original owners of my truck were B. CONSIGLIO AND SONS PAVING out of wyandotte Michigan.  If anybody knows anything,  I'd love to get some history on this thing!

A guy in Medford Oregon had a new one he ordered. Engine finally blew on him and he pulled it. The truck sat in the back at Leanardo's in White City and I tried a few times to buy it. Nice straight cab (had the small first series R cab) and body. It seems to me it was gone last time I drove by. RS755
