This truck was originally sold to the US Army. After the First World War it was sold by the US Military and returned to one of the Mack Truck factories and converted to a fire engine for the Baltimore Maryland Fire Department.
When we stripped this truck to restore, it showed very little wear in the mechanical parts which indicates it obviously has done very little work during the time it was in service.
We purchased this truck from Ron Carey, a Mack enthusiast in Calgary, Canada in July 2006 and completed the restoration in February 2008.
