You can bet on one thing - that Brockway was put back on it's feet and with minimal repairs was hauling freight again. Try that with one of today's "tuperware wonders" (plastic). They don't call Brockways a "Living lengend of the highways" for nothing. Stan 8)

Brockway would introduce Huskidrive in 1968. This was a combination of a two-speed rear axle, five speed transmission, and a high-torque-rise diesel engine. The rear axle shift was controlled by a dash mounted switch which allowed the driver to start in Power and then switch to Cruise position after only shifting through five gears. A trucking industry trade magazine called "Overdrive" visited Brockway's Cortland plant in early 1968. Impressed with what they witnessed at Brockway's plant, they featured Brockway in their May 1968 issue, calling Brockway "The Most Rugged Truck in the World!"
