Must have a very good owner because it looks very good for it's age.

Nice catch.

The previous owner brought it to Newfoundland from Iceland.  I heard there are another couple Scanias around here somewhere and one is a tandem tractor.  I haven`t seen it so I might go hunting for it.

Scania tried to be a player in the US and Canada, mostly on the east coast to Indiana from the mid 1980s to the early 1990s.  It didn't work out so well.

1985-88, I'd say.

Before 1985 the logo had a square C, and in the fall of 1987 the 3-series was introduced.

Scania was in the US from 1986-1993.  They sold about 700 trucks in that time, mostly in the northeast.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

Yes, that's what I said.  They tried to be a player, but didn't succeed.  I have a number of photogrpahs I have taken, brochures and information from Scania USA I acquired during that time.

Hello Jet A-1,

As "European" and also a "since a very looong time" Scania-fan, many thanks for this very nice "catch"!!!!!

Another "unknown" one for me in USA/Canada and a very nice "proto-type" for my "models"!!!!!

For me it is still a big pity that it never "worked out well" for Scania!!!!
One of the "main reasons" of that "failure" were some "own market protecting" rules in USA/Canada!!!!!
(No "much more powerfull" V-8 engines!!!!!)
Also the "high price" and "lack" of workshops and spare-parts was one of the "main parts" of that "failure"!!!!!
And not to forget, no co-operation (or "taken-over") with "home-brands" like Volvo/White, Renault /Mack or MB/Freightliner or nowadays DAF/Paccar!!!!!
BTW, that is also a "reason" that MAN never did start any "serious" try on the "North-American" market!!!!!

Nowadays we "all" will get taken over by "Chinese"companys!!!!! :( :( :( :o :o :o :-[ :-[ :-[ :'( :'( :'(
Also the "brand" I am "working" in, (Dutch build "Ginaf") is since February 2012 in "Chinese hands"!!!!!

Chuckyr, the 2 pictures of the R-112 are for me "since years" 2 "original" ones for an "rebuild" Italeri-model!!!!! :) :) :)
I have also 2 "rebuilded" T-112 (conventional) versions and the both "Legacy" ones!!!!!

Looking forward for more "new/unknown" Scania's in the USA/Canada!!!!!

Greetings from Germany,

The DAFman,Leo

Scania is sold in Mexico and many modern models can be seen around the south western US states along the Mexican US border.  I have long since planned to make a replica of the Scania i posted.  i acquired the modification resin parts years ago, but have as of yet to start that project.

Sorry reviving an old topic, but i would like to know if somebody have more infos about this Scania, if this truck its still there or maybe owner's name? I have a friend in Illinois that bought those Canadian Scanias and he is interested to buy this one too.

Thanks.

The cab on that Scania looks immaculate no sign of any tin worm, great catches.        Bob.
