The Mack Trucks Historical Museum, Allentown is the repository of historical documents & artifacts from Mack's long & storied history as the leading American truck manufacturer & brand name. Among the antique vehicles in the museum's collection is one of the original sightseeing buses built by Jack & Augustus Mack in the first decade of the 20th century. The gas-operated, open-air bus carried up to 26 tourists at a time around the streets & sights of Chicago in the summer & New Orleans in the winter for 25 yrs & over a million miles of service before returning to Mack as the anchor of its antique truck collection. The museum's real treasures aren't made of steel at all, but of paper & celluloid, with over 80,000 photos in the collection, many dating back to 1905. Mack has records for nearly every chassis it manufactured since 1905, all of which are filed here. In addition to being the authority on all things Mack, the Museum also restores & preserves vintage Mack trucks and memorabilia.
