Looks to be just a 5 spd truck.

Why would someone go through all this auction hub bub for selling it?  With all the fees, it's a loosing proposition.

That's a mighty fine looking truck. I just checked the VIN and it's actually a R690T. Not sure where they got a DS chassis model from since I don't think Mack ever used that for any of their models.

Where did you check the VIN? Is it possible to get the original specs of trucks still? I'd like to see the full specs of how these Mack's I have here at the mine were spec'd. They are pretty impressive.....E9 V8's, 65,000 Mack rears, etc.

Send your VIN(s) to the Mack Museum with a donation and they will send you the original build sheet plus a ton of other info on the units. 

I also use a few VIN decode web sites

It's from  Boston Mass one of the bad lock down areas, better coverage nation wide I guess.

I work at a Volvo/Mack dealer. Shoot me a PM with your VINs and I can get you some specs.
