1930 Mack AK


Engine Type:
6-Cylinder

Transmission Type:
4-Speed

Truck Information:
This 1930 Mack AK was used by a house mover in Rhode Island; it's a big truck. It has a window sticker showing it was licensed in 1969; it was still being used 39 years after it was built. Notice there are rags stuffed in the radiator top. ACs and AK models were notorious for the radiator, the top and bottom tank failing; the solution was to stuff a rag in it. You couldn't do that today; it wouldn't be pressurized and the DOT would pull you over. The AK model looks like the AC Mack, but it has a six-cylinder engine and it is a lot heavier. As it sits right now it weighs 24,000 pounds. It is a beast to drive; arm-strong steering is no joke. It does have electric start as an option from the factory, but it still has provisions for a crank. There is a very large winch on the back of this truck that was used for moving houses. Top Speed: 40 MPH
