1959 Mack C Pumper
This is a 1959 Mack C model pumper. The Mack C series was introduced in 1957 and produced until 1967.
About this creation

This particular model is a type C95 and has 1,000-gallon-per-minute pump. It has a Mack 672-cubic-inch, 230-horsepower Thermodyne diesel engine. A total of 605 models of the C95 were built.

Overall a total of 1,055 units of Mack C apparatus were built. The vast majority were pumpers, but Mack also built straight and tillered aerials on C model chassis. These included 65-foot, 75-foot, 85-foot, and 100-foot ladders. The Mack C was a very successful model for Mack. It was replaced by the even more successful CF model.

Starting in 1964, Aerialscope 75-foot telescoping aerial platforms were mounted on the Mack C trucks. A total of 13 Aerialscopes on the C chassis were delivered to the FDNY.

The design of the Mack C was acquired by Mack in 1956 when it purchased the C.W. Beck Company. Beck was a bus manufacturer, who had acquired the design from Ahrens-Fox. Only six of the Aherns-Fox cab-forwards were built before that company went out of business.

The C models were amongst the first custom chassis fire apparatus to feature diesel engines. The diesel engine was a simpler is design, more reliable and consumed significantly less fuel than a comparable gasoline engine. BFD552@Gmail.com

Quoting Drew P. This is so cool! Very realistic. What pieces did you use for the open windows in the back of the cab?
Those are modified versions of part number 4863 - Plane Window 1 x 4 x 2 -with the middle section cut out.

This is a great example of the type of truck that local departments used in my youth. It is beautiful in its execution. Regards, Eric.
