American truck builder Mack produced its B model from 1953 through 1966 in various configurations ranging from school busses, fire trucks, and, most commonly, over-the-road trucks. Mack outfitted B-Series trucks with either gasoline or diesel engines matched with a transmission that best suited the service requirements. Despite all of the custom configurations available, Mack never offered a B-Series in a light-duty pickup version.
Originally an over-the-road hauler, the builder of this one-of-kind 1962 Mack B-61 first mounted the restored cab on a modern GMC 3500 truck chassis. He then fabricated a custom six-feet-wide by ten-feet-long stepside bed complete with 1-5/16″ thick white oak bed boards (secured with stainless skid strips) and a functional tailgate. Not just for show, the truck chassis features rear air bags, trailer brakes and a Class IV Hitch.
Powering this custom pickup is a GM 366 cubic inch tall deck V8 producing 300 horsepower and 377 foot-pounds of torque. Transferring that power to a 3:73:1-equipped single axle is a TurboHydramatic 400 automatic transmission. The builder/seller notes their truck features new tires all-around.
The builder created this truck with both capability and comfort in mind. In addition to power steering and power brakes, this truck features a custom air conditioning system for four-season comfort. A unique heated new bench covered in a combination of green Naugahyde and black Houndstooth inserts provides driver and passengers comfortable seating compared to the original stock unit. Other niceties include custom LED gauges, a backup camera, and an MP3 player. New thirty-percent green tinted glass also features fresh window seals.
This one-of-a-kind Mack Pickup also features all-new upper and lower ball joints. The seller reports the truck features all-new disc brakes in the rear, complete with stainless steel brake lines.
The seller provided over two hundred pictures documenting their one-of-a-kind 1962 Mack B-61 pickup. Please check out the gallery below to enjoy the quality of this truck’s build.
