:hello: Are you sure it is not a Mack? It looks really close to a Mack, and I thought I saw the word "Mack" on it too. But I'm not a good judge.

:hello: I did some research, and couldn't find anything that resembles this truck made by White Motors. I found a White 9000 Series and it looks way more like that White 4000 Series also in Maximum Overdrive. And I found the White 9000 T series. I will continue to post info on my searches. I am still looking for a Mack that resembles this truck.

Nope, not a Mack. It is a White ... 4000. There were two hood styles on the 4000, the earlier like this one, and the later one like the other White 4000 in this movie has. The cab is the same on both but was also used by other manufacturers like Autocar and Diamond Reo.

I think the triple T is for the Truck-Trailer-Transit corp., a Detroit based company introducing the wedge brake system for trucks, trailers and transit buses in the early 80s. Countless trucks were then retrofitted with that system and may have received these mudflaps to advertise the services of TTT corp., or alert following trucks that weren't yet converted that the rig in front of them has superior braking abilities.

The shots from the inside the cab looks just like the ones they used later on when the Mack B61 chases the Malibu, though.

Whats the deal with the sound that this truck makes when it starts up? Sounds crazy lol.

firebird86 US

2006-04-14 07:51

Quote

That crazy sound is a "pneumatic" air powered starter, no electrical starter. It almost sounds like an impact gun when it starts. If the truck doesnt have any air pressure built up, then you have to plug an air line into it. Its actually a very dependable system.

If you have seen Mad Max 2, you know when Max tries to start up the Mack the first time, the sound is quite similar to this one. :)

White 9000 with the Autocar "Driver's cab" or later known as the corporate cab,with the round fenders,used until 1966.It also has the old style aircleaner on the R.H. side.There seemed to be quite a few of these bought in 1965,as most of the ones I have seen were '65's.For 1967,they went to a squared of fiberglass front fender,and the eggcrate grille.

firebird86 was right. That wierd sound that the tow truck made is normal for old trucks like that creepy White 9000. I know because I tried to start up my Uncle's 1973 Ford F700 heavy tractor with nothing but a key. It made the same noise. I'm thinking of using it to haul my laundry around.

I believe motard was correct that this was a pre-1966 model. The "1968" came from Rhino, and he frequently gave the wrong model years for these vehicles.

Also, Skid said it was a pre-1966, not a 1966 specifically. So this shouldn't be labeled as such.

I just noticed something. There seems to be a fifth wheel coupling underneath the home made "hook & chain"-boom. The truck is, in other words a trailer truck(tractor).

The TTT logo is a company called Triple T. The brand was started in 1967 and was started in North Carolina.

Wait a minute... this can't be a 9000 cause my uncle had one, and the fenders were squared at the front and the lights were inset partially inside of them, this one has completely round fenders and the headlights are mounted onto the fender and not inset.

Id go with white 9000 also. Cummins engine, pneumatic starter. And being remote controlled it has hydro-static trans as used in small lawn tractors (evident by way of revving engine, jerking movements and only able to do the same speed from go to wo).

The truck has a fifth wheel towing device mounted but I doubt it was homemade. Many of these devices were produced through the years. The US Army actually uses a modern counterpart. The pictures I have aren't clear enough to determine manufacturer though.

Would you look at this?! Apart from the lack of the decals saying: "BERTHA" on the doors and human entrails, this has to be the most esoteric, yet beautiful built model truck from any movie :king: :love:

Triple T company is a truck servicing company that services and supply truck parts, they have five servicing centres in both North Carolina and South Carolina.

One of those five is in Wilmington, it is located at 2715 US Highway 421 North just a mile south of the Interstate 140 Bypass.

Nice name for a White 9000, "Bertha".
