I saw this question posted on another site I frequent and it spawned a great deal of discussion. Board usage has dropped off again so here we go. The question - What part or complete truck are you looking for and are ready to buy if found?

I would like to find a good cab back panel for a 300 series with the original style cross crease. J. Thomas only has some with the crease rolled into them and I prefer the correct look.

A chrome 359 radiator shell would be nice. Someday I would like to get a 359 twin screw with a turbo Cummins in it.

A late forties early fifties Brockway 154WH is the model I'd like to aquire. This is the one with a long hood, 513 cid Overhead valve Continental gas engine, and set forward axle. Most of them were tractors . I'd look at one in just about any condition. I don't know of any of these around...do you ? Steve

I'd like to have a 260XW with a 572 Continental gasser and any style of cab (wood or steel with tilt-out, gasketed, or three-piece windshield), but if I want to be more specific, I really want one that has a wood, two-man cab with tilt windshield, and it's got to have that unique Brockway radiator guard on it.

I want to get my fathers 1972, 360. He ordered it shortly after I was born and picked it up from the dealer a few months later. I have pictures of him holding me in his lap sitting in the drivers seat. I was only a couple months old. No price is to much for this truck!

I would want U and H 360s and 762s, even a 760. I would consider a Huskidrive of any model too!
Anyone can hope...... 8) All of them with spoke on the front, budd on the rear, dual exhaust, ( loud) good amount of chrome, not too much, somewhat long wheelbase, floats on the front, you name it. :lol:
Like anyone, I WANT THEM ALL!!!! :roll:

So Many Trucks, so little time.......HMMmmmmm.......If I'm honest I want a little Model 88 like the old shop truck, (now the banana Wagon) with the simple, short, stake bed bolted right to the frame and the small wheels (Yes Tom! even those pseudo truck wheels) and the frame hiding sheet metal.

Ditto Dane!
Emery, KT is a model that Cummins had. They came out in the 70s and had HP of 450, 525, and 600. (That is all I could remember) Powerful, and pretty hard to find.

The Cummins "KT" engine was in the vicinity of 1100 Cubic inches. 762TL is right on the original factory HP specs, BUT that Performance Products outfit out of Pittsburg will kit it up to putting over 1000 horses to the ground for about $20,000!!
