That ain't a beer gut, it's Mack Steering Stabilization, it takes the shimmy out of the steering wheel.
Ed Boyson ought to remember R models, and should be able to tell you how she shifts. Empty, it ought to run and shift fine in Direct, and you won't need to touch the second stick.
I wouldn't be too surprized if there is an R model club or restoration site someplace on the internet.
Re: 2 batterys, are they 6 or 12 volt? You should be able to follow the battery cables and determine if it has a voltage switch.

Shot hell, it's a rebuildable core.
What are the physical dimensions of the battery box (s)?
It might have had 4 6 volt batterys, and the jumpers may have disappeared with the batterys.
If you have the SN, you can call Mack in Mackungi Pa, and they can tell you how it was built.
