Bull Dog: 1962 Mack Model B Rat Rod 4X4 – SOLD!
September 2020 Update – We’re busy updating our database to accurately reflect the status of every car we’ve featured since starting GuysWithRides.com. This Mack Model B we first featured in April 2020 has since sold.
Dare to be different! How about this wild 1962 Mack Model B truck body placed on top of a 1986 Chevy K20 4×4 chassis once listed on Craigslist in Bohemia, New York (Long Island) for a you-can’t-replicate-it-for-this-price of $9,500. While we don’t have access to vintage Mack Truck pricing, using Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool’s value for a stock Chevy K20 as a proxy confirms this private seller has his creation priced in the “Good” to “Fair” (Daily Driver) range.
The Mack B series was a line of heavy trucks produced by Mack Trucks between 1953 and 1966. It is regarded as the best known Mack model and many still survive both restored and not. They were available in a variety of configurations, including fire trucks and school buses.
Rat or Restomod: that is the question. We struggle with what to label Kenny’s creation. At first blush, the simple placement of a vintage truck body on a more modern truck chassis had us leaning towards calling it a restomod. However, the remaining rust in the rock panels and floors combined tattered upholstery and a primered paint have us leaning towards and out-of-the-box style of Rat Rod. Comment below on what you would call it. Whatever style you assign it, there’s no doubt you will spark a lot of conversation wherever you drive this creation once social distancing measures are rescinded. Good luck with the purchase!
