Mack Trucks Historical Museum

 

 


MACK - Since 1900

 

What year did the Mack Senior model debut?  When was the first Mack diesel engine produced?  When did Mack adopt the bulldog as its mascot?  Or a little closer to home: What transmission was outfitted on your grandfather’s 1940 Mack?  If you have questions – and perhaps a model and serial number (or vehicle identification number) – there’s a pretty good chance the Mack Trucks Historical Museum has the answers within their archives.  The Mack Museum was born as a non-profit corporation in 1984 and commemorates Mack history through preserving truck build records, service and parts information, engineering drawings, photos, memorabilia and a collection of vintage Mack truck models.  In addition to being the authority on all things Mack, the Mack Trucks Historical Museum also restores and preserves vintage Mack Trucks and memorabilia for all to enjoy.
