Mack’s DE model was built from 1939 to 1942. All the light-to-medium weight E series Mack trucks, including the ED, DE, EE, EF and EG models, used Continental six-cylinder motors, whereas the heavier models, EH and larger, used Mack’s own engines.
This truck was bought new by Rangitikei Co-op Dairy Company of Bulls. It was then sold to Basil McGirr of Aromona. The truck was restored by Noel Aitken at Bulls and sold to Dick Parker then to Dawe and Sons of Te Puke. Bill Richardson bought it from them in September 1986.
