Mack » WS760LST Gas Turbine Truck

Late '70s was the peak of popularity of gas turbine trucks. Mack also experimented with such engines. This way the concept WS760LST Gas Turbine Truck came to light. The truck was constructed on the basis of a serial cabover model WA CruiseLiner, but was equipped with a gas turbine model GT601 with power of 550 hp. The engine was designed by Mack Trucks - Industrial Turbines International A Consortium of the Garett Co. The truck was tested in the period 1980-1986 years. Then it was transferred to the Mack museum, where you can see it in present days.

    This may explain what this development test bed "really" was.

Hi I would like to revamp my 1992 Unimog 1700 Tractor. After 14 years of good service it has returned me. I've been searching for a very long time for a Magazine/catalogue for Unimogs. Something like the "Landy" for Land Rover which I'm sure you are familiar. There is a lot written on old mogs,etc in U.S.&Europe. I'm really talking the mainstream everyday working ones, i.e. 423 &427 series ones. For good used components & attachments.
