Really nice one in the  bus museum in Hershey Pa. You have to get a nice shot of the rear end of these coaches. Almost looks like it has fins. And its a LARGE CAR. There is a book on Mack buses  similar to the GM and MCI books.

Is this the Mack you're talking about?  It's the MV-620-D they built in the late 50's:

When we were at the Arcadia bus rally in 2007 we met a gentleman who had done a very nice restoration of a 1952 Mac bus.  The first picture is what it looked like when he bought it in 1999.

That bus belongs to John Hiscock, Loxahatchee, FL.   Jack

So...Was That The Only Bus Made Like That?? Or Are There Others? I Would Buy One Of These If I Could Find One...Looks Kinda Like A 56 Desoto At The Rear. Maybe 1957.

Someone Tell Us More About These COOL Mack Buses.

GIVE ME... GIVE ME.
