For someone who doesn't have a clue, Peterj is pretty clued in ! This big truck is a 1932 Maccar SW86 10 tonner. One of the founders of Maccar in 1912 was Jack Mack, one of the famous Mack brothers who started Mack trucks in 1901. Maccar could not survive the depression and went out of business in 1935. This model SW86 was the largest truck in the lineup. Thanks to Brian Kelly for the photo; the 2nd picture below is a model 86A from Don MacKenzie.

The truck that is pictured is a 1933 Maccar. It was built in Scranton, PA.
I researched the Maccar Company and wrote a book on Maccar Trucks. The book can be found at the AACA Library in Hershey, the Philadelphia, Detroit and Scranton Libraries.
The company was started by Jack Mack and Roland Carr in 1913 in Allentown, PA. The company moved to Scranton in 1914 and made trucks from 1-1/4ton to 12Tons, until 1933.
