Mack » NM with Leyland cab

After the World War 2, many military trucks Mack NM remained in the UK. Numerous of ex-war NM trucks were re-furbished into a commercial modifications by installation of cabs from Leyland trucks. Then, the re-cabbed trucks were working as a tow trucks (Strathpeffer operator), wreckers (Helmsdale-based Rapsons), snowploughs (Aberdeenshire County Council), etc. Probably, most of the trucks were modified by the Mack Trucks Great Britain Ltd, of Barking Essex. In addition to local cabs, the trucks received AEC, Leyland, or Hercules engines.

    I worked at Mack trucks (Barking) for about 7 years in the late fifties to early sixties as a welder. It would take some weeks to strip down a ex US army truck rebuilding repainting, it would then be driven to Scotland by Jock Black sometimes without a cab in winter. Interested to see if there are any other workers still around.
