Still Working – Mack ValueLiner

I came across this Mack ValueLiner of the Fisher Companies the other day. I had seen it weeks before at a job site and made a mental note to check it out later. I really didn’t expect it to still be around when I returned but there it was in all its glory. While resembling a R-Model the ValueLiner was much a different animal by design. The frame was composed of 1/2 inch aluminum rails and cross members. Lightweight steering, suspension and wheel components were standard. The goal was to build a light but strong truck which by extension would have increased payload capacity. The spiritual successor the “western” models of the Hayward Plant the ValueLiner went head to head with the golden children of the west; Peterbilt, Kenworth and Freightliner.
