Well, it USED to be an old Bulldog... Kinda reminds me of a Cuban vehicle, like Chuck said... They have all these old American cars but no parts thanks to the trade embargo...

The two pipes on the air filters means this truck has the tip turbine Mack engine. It was a king of bypass intercooler and was available from 285 to 315 and eventually 350 hp. This system was introduced in the mid to late seventies and was phased out in 86 when Mack redesigned the heads of their straight six engines.

Might be a Cuban rig- I found it on a site showcasing beaters of the world, and quite a few were from Cuba.

I was just thinking that old Junkard Dog Mack kit might be a bit more presentable-looking if you built it to resemble this truck. B)

Wow...and I thought the MACK's we had in the yard at my last job were old, tired, and beat up! That one takes the cake.
