Although this handsome new B-61T Mack was sold to the Marietta Transport Company in Atlanta, Georgia on August 26, 1960 the current owner, Harry Scott, didn't own it until he purchased it in 2006.
Scott wasn't looking for a Mack that evening as he scrolled on his computer through the list of vehicles for sale on Ebay. That is when he stumbled across this Mack. The seller was only 25 miles away.
Following a telephone conversation it wasn't long before the transaction was consummated and the truck was at a new home. Scott had bought the Mack without hearing the Thermodyne 672-cubic-inch six-cylinder engine run. He was confident, however, because it had recently been rebuilt and the odometer had been reset to zero miles.
