Some more from the ME but this one is from Iran. Now that they managed to undo the embargo, I'd imagine these (and older IHs, Whites and CCCs) will disappear to be replaced by late model trucks.

John, thanks for that pic of a Mack we never had in Israel back the, when people thought COE was a crazy idea.

John, this is a great photo. Judging by the large, non-sealed beam headlights this is a 1940 or older CH or CJ. The conventional is a BX.

Would this be a CH CJ ? I think it's bigger than an EB EC and I don't think the LJU LMU had the dip in the bumper. Also found a Walter Miller catalog online and it shows a 1942 Illustrated Parts Book for LFU LJU LMU. Never seen mention of an LFU before.

For anyone asking, running road trains to the Med from the Dead Sea basin was crazy - they had serious balls back then. Distance was nothing in Aussie or US terms but here's a part of the road:

Death Valley temperatures most of the time. I can't even begin to think what this was like.

Joe, Slim and Brocky: The thing on the roof is indeed an attempt to isolate the cab from the effects of the Israeli sun - those were no mixer chassis but semi trailer tractors for towing potash road trains from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea (and before the 70s, sometimes to the Mediterranean ports in the western part of the country). Headlights were fitted inside bumper due to Israeli regs which follow the European ones, although later they returned to the wings (the authorities did not apply the rules consistently back then...).

That's what they looked like after being fitted with tires, 5th wheels etc. Pic by Israel Sun.

Later spec DM800 with regular headlight positioning (pic Ronnie Milo). DM800s were never used as mixers, they were too expensive for this, lol. When they were new they represented the top of the heap if you wanted a Class 8 (well, the equivalent - we never had the system in Israel) truck for heavy duty semi work. Some also saw use as dumpers as per Mack's original idea because you could overload them to buggery (which happened a lot back then - roadside weights and police checks are recent things in Israel). R600s did mixer work...

Both were assembled in Israel until 83 by Mack Ashdod who, through the years, also had the MB, MR, DM600, Cruisliner, Ultraliner, "Minilner" (snub-nosed Superliner, only seen in Israel I believe) and Superliner on offer.

Nowadays the only ones left are few owned by O/Os soldering on as well as the ones kept by the IDF for emergencies (which are expected to be replaced by... Volvos soon). Volvo decided Israel will be catered by its and Renault's products because of the falling demand for conventional trucks so no regular import of Mack to the country nowadays...
