Re: Reno Brockways

Hayes could be a fender style copier. If I remember correctly, Mack once owned Hayes and also put it out-of-business.

Re: Late 30's? Sunoco Brockway

The discussion about the truck's appearance is very interesting and I can't add a thing to it. However, I note that the name on the truck's door and the building is the same and there's a fuel pump and oil fill bottles out front. This leads me to believe that the picture was taken at a service stati...

Re: New years 2017

Happy New Year to all!! It's hard to believe that 17 years have passed since the world ended at Y2K! Even harder to take is 2017 - 1977 = 40, so the newest Brockway is 40-years old. Thank goodness for all of you folks who restore and preserve this legendary brand.

Re: Wanna be my Guidance Counselor? CDL Jobs question....

Lumber yards, delivery companies, feed store bulk feed distributions, dump truck operations, concrete mixers, dairy bulk milk pickups all come to mind.

Re: Welcome back!

Add me to the list of those that are glad that the site is back up and running and that I hadn't done something wrong. One never realizes how much one misses something until it's gone. While I usually don't have any comments, I really appreciate the site providing my Brockway "fix." Thanks...

Re: Back in the day.....

Fuel at reasonable prices, Re-Trac mirrors, and a new Brockway tractor; there's enough change reflected in this picture of roughly 40 years ago that one has to wonder, what's next and how will we like it!

Re: Milano 360

A disclaimer right up front as I don't want my question misunderstood. I believe both the Milano 360 and Tom's 361 are wonderful restorations mechanically and cosmetically. My question is purely to satisfy my curiosity. Both of these trucks have the inside of the cab painted in their body colors, wh...

Cummins K-model truck engine

If I remember correctly, Cummins came out with their roughly 600 hp K-model truck engine around 1974. Did Brockway ever install any of these at the factory?

Truck Makers of New York

Paul Manwiller, the truck fleet maintenance manager for Air Products and Chemicals until he retired several years ago, has published a new book, "A Review of the Truck Makers of New York by Location-Nameplate-Maker-Year(s)." It's available from the AMERICA ON WHEELS MUSEUM at 5 North Front...

Re: Brockway Pic of the Week 3-4-13

Keeping with the stainless steel A-cars, Monty Blogett was in charge of maintenance for the Edgecomb Steel Fleet. He said that the stainless steel stood up to the weather just fine but was a bear to keep clean, especially of finger prints and similar stains. He adopted what he called the 50 foot cle...

Re: Brockway Pic of the Week 3-4-13

I suspect that the tractor in the picture of the week was used as the model for the short BBC vehicle in the advertising brochure. Both ad pictures show it in the same perspective and it has the same dome lights, air cleaner, air horns and mirrors. If not the same, they certanly are related!

Re: Brockway Pic of the Week 2-11-13

Interesting, Renault owned Mack for awhile and the husky on this Brockway turned into a bulldog. Maybe it was a company truck over in France.

Re: Brockway Pic of the Week 1-21-13

You know that you have the load about right when the double pack steering axle springs have lost their camber! Was the frame "doubler" a Brockway option or did one hunt for a blacksmith with some I-beams and a good supply of U-bolts?

Re: Saying Thanks!

Add another thankyou from Missouri. I don't see many--or even any--Brockway's out here but the Millards and many of the rest of you provide me my "fix" and I really appreciate it. Thanks again and Happy New Year to everyone. Larry Strawhorn

The owner of Blue Line was Reggie Goddard and if I am seeing correctly, that's him with the bow tie.

Re: Another Mack disguised as a Brock

Quadbox and Mike, I knew I'd miss some Mack COE's and fire equipment had completely slipped my mind. There was the C and later the CF. While both the K and CF used a cut down F-model cab, they were cut differently. As far as I know, only one K was ever made, the prototype, and it was used in Allento...
