This is one of my favorite trucks. I am a big fan of the ones still earning their keep, restored or not. Thanks for the pictures! However my little 358 is sweeter...

Love to see working Brockways and a V12 makes it sweeter.

Well could be... Yours might have 6 more cylinders, hundreds more horsepower, more axles, be newer, be faster, be profitable- but not loved any more. Happy New Year

We love our big dogs and puppies all the same. As long as their last name is Brockway. Happy New Year!!

Growing up in Canton MA. I bet I have seen your truck a few times. Love to see it working and did not mean anything, but I have a love for the V12's. Happy New Year.

I enjoy the passion you have for your truck. Like I said, it is one of my favorites (other than my 9). Here is a picture that is not recent, but taken on a really fun day. It was not as fast as the Ford LN but did as much work.

Pretty rare dozer. Euclid made 1 82-50 which was totally different.

Big dogs or little dogs, I like them all, but after spending some quality time this past fall under the hood of this particular little 358, it is one of my favorites. It's one sweet classic, and a movie celebrity too!

I had a rare Brockway Service call last fall. They sent the smartest and most helpful individual. Diagnosed and quickly resolved all problems getting the 358 back on the road. Also tackled some other brand issues that had been very confounding. Excellent experience and highly recommend communicating with them. We are considering the option for a southern branch under their direction. Further developments will be updated.

Hi Second...

Doesn't your 358 have the Continental flathead gas motor in it?

Tom, Yes it is the 42 BXD. 150 hp is a lot less than 400 plus...
