Brockway Pic of the Week 9-3-07

Postby oldspwr » Mon Sep 03, 2007 8:07 pm

Here is a pic of Stan Augustine's 1972 N361TL. It has a 230 Cummins with a 5 x 4 and Eaton 44,000 rears. The lowboy is a 1973 Tonco with 25 ton capacity. This truck is a familiar sight at all the local truck shows and Stan is continually making upgrades, etc...

Stan's got one sharp truck!! I am partial to the color combination!!!!
The lowboy and winch are a hot setup for retrieving future projects, Plus it just looks awesome. The Hummin Cummins is also a big plus in my book! I also appreciate Stan sharing his knowledge of Brockway trucks with us. He is a great asset to the Brockway organization!!

My dad was actually scared when he saw that truck at cortland because there was one like that (unrestored same colors) near our house that he wanted. It was used to haul salt for a living and was powered by a 420 cummins!

Thanks for all the kind words guys! "Blackie" is the result of buying and selling several trucks restored and unrestored over the past five years to reach the level she's at. I constantly upgraded parts until I had sheetmetal without any rust at all, including the cab. This was a cab off restoration. The cab was done through the winter months in about 150 man hours then the truck frame was restored and cab installed, painted and detailed in 90 days during May, June and July of 2005. I was still tighting and adjusting things the morning of the 2005 Brockway show, then we hit the road and drove to Cortland. (will never rush like that again) This truck was originally a dump truck and I converted it to a tractor and installed the winch. The 5 X 4 trannys are both overdrive making a cruising speed of 72 mph at 1900 rpm. The next major improvement will be this winter when I install the new Cummins NTC 335 I have built for it. A special thanks to Tom Millard for posting a pic of my truck. Stan 8)
