One of Pennsylvania's most successful manufacturers of gasoline-powered vehicles was Mack Trucks of Allentown. In 1905 the Mack Brothers began production of their first truck, a 5-ton capacity, seat-over-engine open vehicle. Mack-built trucks soon became noted for their exceptional performance and durability.
