What scale AC are you wanting to build? Monogram made an excellent set of 1926 Mack AC Trucks in 1:24 scale in the late 1970's, and these were all three reissued about 6-7 years ago in their Selected Subjects Program (SSP).

The Mack AC was produced with virtually no changes at all from 1913 through

1940, the only addition having been a different set of cast-iron wheels with pneumatic tires, that coming in the middle 1930's. Of course, for a military version, you'd have to build (or modify the stake body) a correct bed for it, but the cabs were virtually identical to a 1917-1919, as were the headlamps and cowl lights.

Fred Crismon's "US Military Wheeled Vehicles" published by Crestline Books is probably the only photo reference covering US military softskins from the WW1 and interwar periods (though a specialty book on Mack trucks might be more useful for general arrangement drawings and photos). The Crismon book is generally limited to one or two photos and a paragraph of data, but it is often the only source for really obscure subjects, and it's organized by vehicle type, weight, and number of axles.
