Mack Do not know the model number off the top of my head, But it was used to push or tow vehicles out of New York City tunnells and bridges.

I thought these were built by WHITE, but they look like MACK hubs in the front. The truck(s) were built for the Lincoln Tunnel.

Agree with Brocky. Mack. Although White and Biederman also built versions of these "push or pull" units.

No Mack rules apply today, as I'm not sure what model Mack based this truck on. Brocky had this one right off the bat, this was a custom 1939 or so Mack built expressly for towing/pushing disabled trucks and buses out of the Holland Tunnel in New York City. It looks like it may be an early B series, perhaps a BM. There was an article in WOT recently about some White and Biederman tunnel trucks. This photo appeared in a 1939 Texaco ad which also featured a 'teen's CT Electric built for the same purpose.
