The "Mack R Model" was a Class 8 heavy-duty truck first introduced in 1966, by Mack Trucks, to replace the very successful "Mack B Model". [ [ Corporate History: 1960-1969] - Mack] Its production ran for 40 years until the "RD" model was discontinued in 2002 and the "RB" and "DM" models were discontinued in 2005. The first "R" models introduced were powered by Mack Thermodyne diesel and gasoline engines. In 1973 the "R" cab was given a makeover to include a deeper rear wall for more room and a new dashboard design.
