Can anyone share pics and / or dimensions of the factory driver side battery box that is on the running board of the 40's vintage 260XW's?

Any help would be appreciated!

Tom

While the battery box is the same, the truck pictured is from the 1950's. The grill guard with every other bar missing appeared in 1952. Not being picky, just want to get the historical information out there.

Hi Steve...

When did they stop using the doors without the vent wing windows? I thought it was around 1950 or so...

Tom, to my knowledge there is no hard date for the end of the use of doors with smaller windows and no vents. The doors with the larger glass and vent windows (including the type A and B doors) were introduced with the model 50 deluxe cab around 1949, and became the "standard" door at the very end of 1953, being slowly phased in on different models. This change to the "new style" door coincided with the introduction of the newer steel cabs with less or no wood, which are easily recognized by the gasketed windshield.

Of course, Brockway did build plenty of trucks that were "special" in one way or another.
