SST’s Mack is not just an Australian R Model painted black to resemble a movie truck.

While not intended to be an exact replica of the famous lead truck from the movie Convoy, the SST Mack of course pays tribute to it sharing many of its iconic features. The movie hero truck was a Mack Western RS700L. The Western RS series trucks were built on a different chassis to traditional East Coast R Models. Among many other differences, the RS models of the period had a unique taller bonnet (which was not interchangeable with a traditional East Coast R Model due to the unique cab position). The Western Macks were not imported to Australia, and the Australian built R Models were based on the East Coast USA models.

SST’s Mack is an Australian built replica of a Western RS700L. It is likely the only one of its kind in Australia.

We are taken back by the amount of positive feedback and attention the Mack has already received. There are drivers all over the world that have been inspired to join and devote themselves to the transport industry by the movie and the iconic truck that SST’s Mack pays tribute to. Given how unique the vehicle is in Australia, we anticipate it will receive a fair amount of focus on the day of (and leading up to) the Convoy – regardless of whether the truck actually leads the Convoy.

Capitalise on the exposure while supporting the worthiest of causes. We will include the corporate logo of substantial sponsors on this page. SST is also willing to have the corporate logo of the sponsor with the highest pledge draped as a banner across the rear of the sleeper on the day of the Convoy. Photos taken on the day will be sure to circulate on the web for years to come.

Please do no not hesitate to contact us at info@sixstartransport.com.au if you would like to discuss corporate sponsorship.
