Looks like a French made Mack. I think they were called Berliets (spelling) Joe D.



Thanks , I should've worked that out myself :crazy:

The last French Mack was this, the Mack V8 engined Magnum, really a Renault produced as a Mack for the Aussie/Kiwi markets with own spec. EU Magnums had a different spec.

That thing would give you a nose bleed.......How come it has a Cummins sign in the windshield ?

Yep t's French. Not sure whether it was produced at the old Bernard factory (Bernard had a joint venture with Mack i believe but later went bust) or by Mack's own French factory.

below is a Bernard Mack with a Thermodine

then there was this which was I believe an MB with a French cab

Hi Jeff,

That fender does look more like the sample truck. The hood side panel has me a looking in books but it may be highlighted with the black paint which is throwing me off.

After reading through more books, the BJ apparently received styling cues from the model AL bus and was a relatively low chassis height. Certainly the two piece widow glass indicates the early B cab versus the later style.

As always, old trucks are fun!

Jim, it looks like a BJ to me. They had a different look than the BC's, BM's, & BX's. I think chain drive was unusual on these models but it's a Mack so anything is possible. It is hard to tell if all 4 rear wheels are driven or if that is just a tag axle. Those are nice pictures Hamish, thanks for posting them.
