I would think bus is late 1950'S or early 60'S. The hood dog could have been added I think not and they were first used 57 or 58. Grill and front end not 1940'S. My opinion only. Joe D.

Count me in to help save it. By far one one of the most unique Brockways I've ever seen!

I'm in!! Although I don't see it as all that unique, they seemed pretty common in central NYS at the time, but were "rode hard and put up wet" so that not many continued on after serving all the ankle biters of the fingerlakes.
Who's gonna Honcho this project?

Offer $1,000 and see if they'll take it if we move it. Otherwise scrap vallue is probably less now and they'd have to move it after taking out the landscaping. Or they may consider a donation if tax deductible. But, beware of "Nakes and Piders!"

Let's all talk at the show and see what we can come up with. I think it would be a great addition to the museum. I will donate my time and money in loading it and hauling it down to the museum. Would the museum even want it??? Dane
