1957 Mack B61

B61T 16622

In early September of 2002 we drove the B61 some 75 miles home from Columbia, SC without incident.

Mechanically the truck is in good working order, the sheet metal is solid but does have some rust around the windshield, door bottoms and fenders that will need to be addressed.

Some Before and After Pictures

Our long-term goal is to restore the B61 to original condition and colors but for now we will clean up the truck, stabilize the rust areas and perform a comprehensive mechanical service.

We gave the old dog a good (3 bucket) wash and had not really planed any paint restoration but when parked in its new home we couldn’t resist trying some products on the paint to see what was there.

We are currently researching the trucks history; we do know that Jones Motor out of Pennsylvania operated it for some time.

This project is a labor of love in progress…
