Brockway Pic of the Week 2-17-14

Postby oldspwr » Mon Feb 17, 2014 4:00 pm

Here is an interesting picture I found over on flickr. It's of a 361 that has a lot going on with it, especially with the Borequin Grill insert and large sleeper. The picture is courtesy of Dick Copello and was taken about twenty-five years ago on Rte 30 east of Lancaster, PA.

Probably wanted some fuel capacity. I remember in the late 70s seeing 275 gallon home oil tanks across the rails of cabovers behind the cab when fuel was in short supply

I had forgotten about about the various methods that were employed to obtain extra fuel capacities during that time. All kinds of tanks could be seen behind tractor cabs, both COE and conventionals, but of course you pretty much had to use a cabover running coast to coast because of the length restrictions. Many operators also put extra tanks under their trailers and then they would transfer the fuel to the tractor tanks when they got low.
