Hi Phil - welcome to the board! We all watched the auction of the 360 from Avon. Glad to hear that someone got that will appreciate it. As for your question on the Eaton 3sp rears, they are probably original to the truck. A Brockway could be spec'd and built with many different options, those rears included. I know of only one other set, so they are quite rare. Parts like shift controls turn up on E-Bay from time to time. Keep us posted with status of your projects.

Hey Phil, Glad to see you made it to the board. I stopped and talked to you one time last summer I believe about your 2 trucks on Shust Road. I called you one other time when I was in the area, but I dont think you had service. Anyways, glad to see you here. Brandon Flynn
