Mack 5-Speed with Brown-Lipe 3-Speed

Truck Information:
For anyone in the heavy haul business in the '60s, this 1964 Mack B-873SX would have been the truck to have. It has the biggest six-cylinder turbocharged Cummins engine available at the time; the engine has 335 HP. The Mack B-87 was the largest B model built for over the road. They were produced from 1956 to 1964 and only 75 rolled off the assembly line. Mack offered this chassis - which has a 186.5" wheelbase - specifically for heavy duty, off-highway dumper, mixer, logging, oil field, and carry-all tractor operations. It was touted to be powerful, dependable, and set high standards for economy and a long lifespan. This Mack still has the factory tinted windshield and factory "Mack Green" paint. This is a hard-working truck that's more functional than handsome. It has a big bumper on front as well as a big winch on the back if you need to drag a broken-down vehicle and heave up onto your trailer. The truck weighs over 27,000 pounds. There is a heavy capacity on it for pulling heavy trailers. The rear springs are actually a stack of nine springs and each one is over an inch thick. The rear axles are massive. If a comfortable ride is what you want, this isn't your truck. If you need to pull the whole world on the other hand, this will do. This Mack truck was originally purchased by Ole Hanson & Sons Inc., a rigging company located in Pleasantville, New Jersey. Dennis Yaworski bought this truck from the original owners at auction. It was later owned by Gary Mahan. The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum acquired this truck on July 13, 2011. Top Speed: 60 MPH
