Mack Trucks Historical Museum

Details

The Mack Trucks Historical Museum in Lehigh Valley, Pa. is the repository of historical documents and artifacts from Mack's long and storied history as the leading American truck manufacturer and world-renowned brand name.

Among the antique vehicles in the museum's collection is one of the original sightseeing buses built by Jack and 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 and sights of Chicago in the summer and New Orleans in the winter, for 25 years and more than a million miles of service, before returning to Mack as the anchor of its antique truck collection.

For many visitors, the museum's real treasures aren't made of steel at all, but of paper and celluloid. There are more than 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.
