There is a 400 series truck for sale on Facebook. Some of the comments are just so far off the charts they need passing on here........

"Tim I had a Brockway that I drove was a convential rode rough most was terrible long cant remember how long it was too long ago I know the year was in the 50s most people don't know what that truck is I know it was made towards Bradford Pa. in a town called Brockway along RT. 219 it was a good truck for an old 1"

"Brockway would take a brand new Mack, change a bunch of parts and change the nameplate."

"Brockway was made by Mack for Brockway"

Yep, lot of ignorant people out there, and most will argue with you that they are right, until you get out the books and prove them wrong, then it's nothing but CRICKETS!!

In a slightly different direction; When my driving days started in the 70s, Brockway was not very common in the South. Admired and respected but mostly known through magazines and such. The 700 series seemed to be the one that made them better known as far as vocational and regional trucks. That, with the 400 series, gave the impression that they were to Mack as Chevrolet was to GMC. So I understand some of the ignorance, but know better. Oddly enough when I talk about mine most people (down here) are very interested and want to know more. It kind of makes me feel a little better about the other crap.

But those who really know, know it's a Sheller-Globe cab made in Ohio. Both Mack and Brockway purchased them rather than make their own. There are several differences between the two cabs, the most notable, the front to back and side to side dimensions, with the Brockway cab being more narrow by a few inches each way. Also, the two are very different at the cowl line for the hood rest, the frame mounting arrangements under the cab, and the dash board mounting inside the cab. Only in the last year of mfg. did Brockway go to the Plus 3 cab for the 700 series. Whether it was a cost cutting measure on Brockway's part purchasing the cab with dimensions widely used by Mack, or an advertising ploy to gain sales may never be known. Now the 400 series cab-over is a little different story. The Mack F model and the Brockway 400 series cabs were identical in dimension right from the start, but again, they were made by Sheller-Globe in Ohio. The fact remains to all of us loyal to the Huskie, "IT'S NOT A MACK CAB"
