1911 Mack Omnibus for sale! Motorcar Classics is pleased to present this fascinating 1911 Mack Omnibus. Little is known of the history of this truck. It was located in Mahopac, New York and it is licensed, inspected and registered in New York State as a 1911 Mack with the vehicle identification number MK27. A plaque on the vehicle reads Liffy Van Lines, 660 Museum and perhaps coincidentally there is a Liffey Van Lines that had a registered address in Mahopac, New York.
Mechanically the truck is powered by a flathead 4-cylinder motor that appears to be a Willys Go-Devil motor as was used in WWII and later Willys and Jeep vehicles. The gearbox, likely an original Willys item sourced with the motor, and a custom-fabricated shifter which runs over and above the motor to the forward driver's position. The rear wheels are chain driven with brakes, there are no front brakes. The carburetor, distributor and accessories appear to have been upgraded. The artillery wheels are mounted with pneumatic tires all around, and the electrical system has all of the lights required to be street legal.
The source and age of the body are unknown. This might have been the vehicle's original body, but it is more likely that the body was a later addition, perhaps for some promotional purpose. It surely looks like the builder had in mind a motorized stagecoach, which is the first thing that comes to mind. It has the driver's bench seat, and then the shotgun bench seat on the roof, and the fully upholstered coach seats 6-8 on benches with wood trim, glass windows, and roll down shades on the windows.
The truck starts reliably and it runs and drives. It is roadworthy and meets all of New York State's safety requirements. The question is, what purpose do you imagine for this bus? Perhaps a promotional vehicle? A property tour vehicle? A party bus or limo? The possibilities are endless, and it would surely be a fun addition to a collection of antique vehicles.
