If I remember right, Mack Truck used to be headquartered right here locally in old Hagerstown MD:We recently came across some information that our M123A1C was not built in 1965 as the paperwork says, which would mean it was manufactured by CONDEC, but it was actually built in 1968 by Mack. It's pretty cool to know it is a genuine Mack.
Yep, Not new to, And Definitely B I G ! Well collected (and preserved for the 'cause'.)Thanks for the tips, we are looking into those parts suppliers. Also awaiting the mail man to bring all the books, including the lube spec. We are also hoping to find an M123 hulk someone may be parting out.
Just to be clear, we are not new to OD or big trucks, we both own some big WW2 7-1/2 ton 6x6's (and larger), but this is the first M series truck for both of us.

I think I have a spare tire carrier and hoist on a dead M123 I have. I also have a 5th wheel, 3" pin type. No ramps though. If it does not snow too much the next few days I will take some pictures. Al Hansel 507-528-2780I've always been more into the WW2 trucks, I have a couple of Federal 7-1/2 tonners, but just jumped into the M series in a big way. A friend and I just bought this 1965 Mack M123A1C with the V8-300 Cummins and 13K miles. It's in very good running condition and everything seems to work like it should. The super singles keep the width legal. We picked it up Friday in New Hampshire, spent all day Saturday cutting off the ugly cage and sprucing up the paint, and took it to the truck show at Worcester (Mass) Sand & Gravel on Sunday. We are looking few things it needs that I think are common to all the M series trucks, like windshield frames, tail lights, and guards for the turn signals on the front fenders. We are also looking for some of the M123 specific items like the spare tire carrier and derrick, and the 5th wheel and ramps. Any help finding this stuff would be greatly appreciated. We are planning a full military paint job in the future.
