I don’t have to tell you that this old Mack has seen better days. I really don’t know much more about it other than it’s currently for sale. I didn’t notice a number but then again I didn’t really look to hard. Snap the picture and roll on. That’s how it happens sometimes. I’ve gone by this location on RT 11 in Syracuse many times and can tell you there are a few other neat trucks lurking around. For example, this B-model featured in the post Vintage Mack Trucks from October, 2014.
And since we’re on the topics of Macks, I might as well share this shot of another R-Model from Purcell’s Paving of Watertown, NY. The years have been much kinder to this truck.
You might want to check out my youtube channel. I have a custom R model Mack and some other diesel projects you might be interested in seeing.
Wow! You are correct! Never thought I would see a 12V71 in Studebaker.
