THE MACK AB

Introduced in 1914, the Mack AB was the company's first standardized, high volume model series, the first of which had either chain or worm drive. In 1920, a dual reduction drive replaced worm drive as an option. The AB filled the medium-duty role and incorporated many innovations particularly adapted to the times. It's simple, classic styling and overwhelming customer acceptance endured continuous modification and a production run extending through 1937, for a total of over 55,000 units.

Thousands of AB's would be built to serve in WWI and would further strengthen the reputation for ruggedness that Mack was gaining. The ruggedness and long service life of these old Macks unfortunately makes good survivors a rare sight today.

THE MOTORTRUCK OFFERED

This excellent example of the quintessential Mack AB has been well restored and kept in a long term home. The truck is very complete with its original equipment intact. Close examination indicates a body and running gear solid and free of the pitting usually found in a truck that may have languished outdoors, apparent is a good sound truck.

The engine bay shows recent work, the engine itself is said to have been freshly rebuilt. The long stake bed has three rollers built into the floor to allow easy handling of board lumber. The interior is correctly restored, sparsely appointed to work vehicle specification. All original ID and operator plates adorn the cab.

A nice example and a true icon of American trucking, the AB laid the foundation for what is America's most storied truck manufacturer. Macks hold a special place among collectors and good examples are highly sought after. This fine AB represents a great opportunity to get one of these legendary machines.
