Mack "F" Model Truck Pictures?
« on: October 24, 2012, 08:26:15 AM »
Is there anyone on here who can post some old Mack "F" model trucks.....mainly from the late 60s - late 1970s??  My late father was a truck driver and I loved the old white Mack "F" Model he drove.  He passed away while actually driving in New York, New York on February 5, 1980 - and my life has never been the same because I was only three years old and never got to spend much time with him.  :( 

But.....if anyone would care to post some pics of these old trucks (sleeper included), I would appreciate it. 

Thanks,
Tony Trout

Hi Tony,
Here are a few F-900's that both my Dad and I drove when we worked for Certified Industries in NYC.  The company bought 45 1973 F-900's.  Sorry no sleepers on these trucks.  They went back to the yard after their days work.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.  I am still in search of any of these trucks.  They were supposedly shipped to Nicaragua.

This is the truck my Dad drove.  Picture was taken when delivered to the yard.


This was mine.  A few of the trucks came through with the stripes on the barrel but were later changed to polka-dots.

Guys,

Thank you SO much for the pics of the Mack "F" trucks!  They sure bring back bittersweet memories for me.  :)

Due to being disabled since birth with Cerebral Palsy, I'm not a driver and have never drove a big rig but seeing these pictures is awesome enough.  I loved my Dad's white F Mack that he drove and looked forward to every trip we would take to Gainesville, GA to load the truck.  I loved seeing that big baby sitting there with those engines humming and the smoke coming out of those stacks and the smell of the diesel and when my Dad would lift me up into the truck and Mom would get me and put me in her lap, I felt like I was in Heaven looking over at that classic Mack steering wheel and the shifter and ALL THOSE BUTTONS I WANTED TO PUSH but knew I couldn't - LOL!!  I haven't seen the inside of one of those old Macks in YEARS.... *hint*...if anybody has any detailed pics of the insides of these good ol' "F" model Macks, would they please post them?

Hello Tony. I found an awesome web site that has a whole bunch of scanned Mack brochures including three for the F Model. It is at http://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/truck_brochures/mack/

It was great to see all those again. Like you I love the F Model. The R is my favourite truck of all time and the F is basically the cab over version of it.

If that particular truck was painted entirely white with Turpin Trucking (out of Hiawassee, Georgia at the time), it would match what my Dad's truck looked like.  I have a photo of the truck (and reefer trailer) but I ain't figured out how my new printer/scanner/copier works yet or I would post a picture.

I took this image in Amsterdam a few years ago. I believe this "aerodyne" model was for export only.

Kiwi eight wheeler, one of around 6 or so this company had here in the 70's, flat decks towing 4 axle trailers.
