Mack Truck Museum
« on: December 16, 2008, 12:39:23 PM »
Took a little trip to Bulldog country yesterday up in Allentown PA & visited this awesome shrine to Mack trucks. People who work there are very informative (retired Mack employees) & the old trucks, posters and models are laid out for the best viewing possible. A few of the trucks i expected to see (B model, UPS F model) are on loan to the America On Wheels Museum a couple of miles away so i've got another road trip coming up i guess. :-) Hope some enjoy the photos.

No explanation needed - Mack's #1.  :-D


1925 Model AB


!947 Brockway


1979 Mack Cruiseliner and the info sheet about this truck.







A few of the models on display.

All American COE


A Cruiseliner with 3 Mack R models saddleback mounted for delivery.


Schwerman Mack R model flatbed.


Front section of a an Ultraliner.


Camelback suspension display.



3 engines that are on display also.

I love the Cruiseliner. I never noticed the Mack name in the grill when I was there and no radiator fill door under the bulldog. Iam guessing the turbine engine doesnt use a radiator :? The Ultraliner shell is also a cool find. Too bad the F model is on vacation :cry:

I'm a little late with this ......

I'm surprised you managed to get outside the building to take pics Ray.

In 2012 I toured the museum as a side trip from the Macungie show - that D Model tanker was just beginning restoration and it was no problem being allowed outside to take a couple of pictures.

Not so the following year.
