Another DM from Israel. Driver was lucky truck stopped where it did - that's the notorious "14Km" on the descent to Sodom. There's an escape road but he's way past that... Pic by Doron Kostel.

another one posted by Doron Kostel on the Israeli trucking nostalgia FB page. On the left it's possible to see the predecessor of the Renault Magnum with the old Berliet cab as well as a Mack Ashdod FM700.

Hayseed, Renault acquired a 10% stake in Mack in 1979, in 1982 it increased its shareholding to 20%. By 1983 Renault owned 40% of Mack and in 1987 transferred the Mack shareholding to RVI-Renault Industrial Vehicles. In 1990 RVI acquired 100% of Mack Trucks.




Thanks Hamish..



Tutlebrain,

By 2000, when the Magnum was introduced to Australia.

The V8 had been dropped altogether By Mack.

The Superliners of that era were either C15, or Signature Powered.

...and the earlier Berliet / Renault cab was used by Ford Europe for their heavy truck, the Transcontinental (a US COE Ford chassis/mechanicals with that cab, modified).

Were no V8 engines offered with the Magnum downunder? Very strange if not - they had them in the EU ones until Volvo decided not to bother with updating the V8 to current emission standards.

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


Hayseed-this cab was used by the French truck builder Saviem. Saviem, which roughly translates as the Society of Industrial Vehicles and Mechanical Equipment was formed in 1955 with the merger of Renault's truck and bus division with two other French manufacturers-Somua and Latil. In 1975 the state owned Renault acquired the Berliet truck business which retained its identity separate from Saviem. In 1978 Berliet and Saviem were merged to form R.V.I-Renault Industrial Vehicles and in 1980 the Saviem and Berliet names were dropped and all trucks became Renaults. If you want to see some breathtakingly weird truck cabs-check out some of the Somua COEs.




Thanks Hamish, Much appreciated... What year did Renault Buy into Mack??

I remember Mack selling the badge engineered Midlum here in the early/mid '80s.

the Manager through most of the '90s.

The Magnum here in the early 2000's until the buyout by Volvo, & the dropping of both COE Macks & N series Volvos..

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

http://static.commercialmotor.com/big-lorry-blog/assets_c/2010/01/French%20Mack%20brochure1-thumb-448x389-58914.jpg

and the last one was this with an English cab

Pics and some info from here: http://www.commercialmotor.com/big-lorry-blog/sacre-bleu-exclaims-le-biglorr


Interesting photos Tutlebrain, the middle one has a cab that was used by Unic before they started using Fiat cabs, The one with the English Motor Panels cab looks quite good, I think. By the way the Mack Magnum was never sold in New Zealand-only Australia.
