    This little Mack is a totally different animal Bob.
    5 speed I think (don't recall) with a 2 speed rear and vacuum brakes.And it has a gas engine.

    When I first got out of high school I worked with my uncle doing underground utlites and we had one of those 2 stick Macks we pulled a low boy with a track hoe on it. That thing was a blast to drive once you got use to holding the wheel with your forearm.

    I'll ask my cousin. He works at a Mack/Volvo garage. He gets to see those everyonce in awhile. He'd have a good idea.

    BTW...He said anything that can get 6 1/2 mpg on PA back country roads is worth its weight in gold. The Volvo motors are the best ones on the road.

    My pops had one of these. He ran a tri-axle dump truck company and his 50's B-Model Mack was his pride and joy. He even had one bulldog welded to the original bulldog on the truck to suggest a "reproductive" position.

    As much as I think they are cool... I would price the truck to sell since there might not be many buyers. I hope I'm wrong...

    I used to live in Eldridge about hour from Walcott. A couple of high school buddies worked there when we first got out of school. I was amazed when I saw it on the History or Discovery channel...I called the wife into the living room and told her about it. Calling the museum would be a great idea...IMHO
