I have been a little hesitant to post this because I didn't know how it would be received. But it seems that there have been some discussions on here about these old trucks, so I decided to proceed. I bought this 1952 Mack A54 a few months ago. It was sitting in a pasture and was likely destined for the scrap yard. I watched it on Craigslist for a few months, but it never sold. I had contacted the guy at one point just to ask a few questions. At the time, I didn't have the money to pay what he was asking. After hid ad expired, I waited about a month and then contacted him again to see if he sold it. He told me that it was still available and that he really needed to move it. I went and looked at it, we negotiated a price and I bought it from him. The story that I got is that it was used by an electrical contractor out of Dallas to install traffic poles many years ago. The pressure digger on the back was pretty well rusted and coming apart. The flathead 6 that was powering it had been rained in and was stuck. This is how the truck looked when I bought it.
