Also that Diamond Reo "Trend" at 1:37 is a rare truck which I hope someone saves.

The G model with it's all aluminum cab,was built '59 thru '62,but there are some around titled as '63's such as the G73 I bought in MA this summer and took to the ATHS show in Springfield.Here's a pic outside the motel.There were a total of 2181 built.Some controversy surrounds the design of the G model,making for it's short run.

They also made the N model, which used the same cab as the C series Fords.

The rarest of the Mack COE's is the W71,produced from '53 to '58,only 215 were built,less than 10 known to survive.Here is a pic of my '54 W71T,only known factory single axle tractor left.

So far I see the H, F, G, N and W Mack COE models mentioned. There was also the MB, a copy of the White Compact and, way back when, the D. The D's claim to fame was that instead of tilting, the cab jacked straight up into the air. The blue sky garage had enough overhead space for this one, I'm unsure where else it would fit. A COE configuration that didn't make it to production was the K model. It was similar to the MB but used a cut-down F-model cab (like the Ford H and C configurations). Now, I'm anxious to learn what I've left out.

Hytooter the K sounds like the low F-Model cab used on fire trucks. Joe D.

Oops, I was referring to the C Model at the 2:28 mark. I misread the first post. I do agree that it's looks like an R headlight bucket. As for the B-75; I've never seen one with square fenders but there's always a first time.

I knew about the M and the MB; never knew of a D. I had no clue there were so different many mack coe's made!

Ted
Doug Maney of ATCA has one. He had it at Macungie in about 2007 with the cab jacked up. It is a survivor in faded out Sinclair Oil green and you can still see where the decals were.
My pictures of it are on regular film on a shelf somewhere.
Mike will correct me, but if I remember right there were less than 1000 built??

832 from '55 to '58.I don't think I've ever seen a restored one,in person or pics.There used to be one in Marengo,IA with a cherry picker on it that I tried to buy but owner wouldn't sell,I've lost track of it now.

In Australia they also had the MIR series trucks, which used a Huskiteer cab. I guess in that case you could say those trucks were a Brockway disguised as a Mack.
