You are bidding on a high quality new 8” x 10” black & white glossy photo reproduction of a McLEAN TRUCKING CO.’s late-1940’s MACK LJT DIESEL TRACTOR #717 pulling a single axle FRUEHAUF STAINLESS STEEL SEMI-TRAILER # B-417.


DESCRIPTION:  This photo reproduction of McLean’s #717 Mack LJT Diesel is pulling a Fruehauf Stainless Steel single-axle semi-trailer #B-417.  With “Diesel Fuel” painted on the saddle tanks, fender-mounted small round rear view mirrors, no mud flaps, and electric fender-mounted turn-signals this LJ Mack was the most modern tractor-trailer on the road for the late 1940s.


”SAMPLE” will not appear on the actual photo, it is only on the scanned image. 


HISTORY OF THE MACK LJT:   The “L Series” of heavy haulage Macks was introduced in 1940 and produced until 1956.  Early models were Thermodyne 707-cid gasoline engine powered, with most later models being diesel powered with the Mack 672-cid engine.  Some 31,000 of the L Series were produced, with some 13,931 LJ’s being built, making it the most popular of the L Series.  The designation “T” indicated built for ‘tractor’ service.


HISTORY OF McLEAN TRUCKING CO. - McLean Trucking Co. was founded by Malcolm McLean in 1934 in Red Springs, NC, moving to Winston-Salem in 1943.  Through acquisitions McLean grew to become one of the largest trucking companies in the nation, at its peak operating 3,800 tractors and 9,600 trailers out of its 300 terminals in 45 states.  It’s growth and competition from non-union carriers was the beginning of the end for McLean.  They filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1986 and more than 10,000 McLean employees were out of work ... another proud carrier gone but for the memories.  Founder Malcolm McLean formed McLean Industries in 1955 and pioneered container shipping.  He is often referred to as “the father of containerization”, founding Sea-Land Service, Inc. one of the pioneers in intermodal cargo transport.  <p>CONDITION: This outstanding black & white photo is a newly reproduced photo from a Mack photo in my personal lifetime collection.  This photo has been printed on archival quality HP Premium Plus High Gloss Photo Paper using HP 02 Vivera Inks, producing a professional quality photo that resists fading over 100 years ... the best money can buy.  For your information, the description and documentation of this photo will be loosely taped to the back side of this photo.
