Re: 260 tractor

This truck was given by a grandfather to his grandson so I don’t think it’s for sale. I was told that it was used to pull a low bed and it does run, I also heard the word “ratrod” when I was taking the pictures.

Re: Fuel tanks

That was always what I was told. A gentleman that I was chatting with had made the comment it was better to leave them low, thanks.

260 tractor

Saw this nice 260 parked at one of our local farms. The wood needs some attention, other than that it’s in pretty decent shape.

Fuel tanks

Trying to minimize condensation, does it matter if fuel tanks are topped off or down under half?

Re: 1931 Model A Ford

Thanks Stan, it’s a good thing you can’t see the flaws in the pictures. We will be out for the show in August, I hope to see you there.

Re: 1931 Model A Ford

Thanks Tom, it is green with black fenders, radiator shell, running boards etc. The only chrome on the commercial trucks were the headlight rings and maybe the bumper. Joanne and I are going out to Cortland for the show, we’re looking forward to seeing you along with all the other fans of Brockway t...

1931 Model A Ford

9C6496E4-AB01-4A17-8ABF-82E55615C6CE.jpeg
Here’s a couple of pictures of my ‘31 pickup that I have been working on for many years. There are still some odds and ends to do, front bumper, horn, some headlight parts and a few miscellaneous items.
Enjoying my retirement, Pokey.

Re: Lopez Trucking

Back in the early 80’s I had just got on the Mass Pike heading east in Lee, Ma. As I continued climbing the grade out of Lee I saw what looked like a set of doubles with bags of cement on flatbeds ahead of me. As I started to pass I realized it was two Lopez 361 Brockways with the driver in the rear...

E.J. McClure 361

Here’s a picture of Gene McClure’s 361 that was still working when I took this photo. It was being used at a gravel pit shortly after having been lettered, as you can see the mirrors hadn’t been put back on yet.

Re: Palmer Farms

Tom, when I took the pictures of this truck it was shortly after UBS had sold it. UBS had always kept their equipment in pretty nice shape, after working on the farm the last several years I doubt that it looks this clean now.

Palmer Farms

Here’s a 361 that was a United Builders Supply truck from southeastern Connecticut and eastern Rhode Island. Palmer Farms bought this truck and added high side boards to haul corn silage and hayliage. I took this picture several years ago and I’m unaware if it’s still in use.

Red and Arts

Red and Arts service station was located along I-84 in Willington, Ct. I got a chance to take some pictures of this truck several years ago when it went to auction. I tried getting pictures of the old Brock when it was still at the gas station, but they seemed to be closed whenever I tried, and the ...

Re: P. Wajer 359

Second, the battery box is correct. My 359 has the same style only it on the right side in place of the right side fuel tank.
