Default 1 of 458 ... a 49G Brockway

Dad left this behind.

It was much prettier 50 years ago before I drove it into an elm tree smashing the cast iron grill into a multitude of pieces.

I still feel guilty when I look at her.

Looks like Momma lost a rack out of the oven for the replacement grille.......

Dear Andy The brockway tractor is in face an upgrade of the Leader tractor. Mr. Brockway built the leader right after WW2 and then sold it to another company who ran it into the ground. Mr Brockway decided to bring his tractor back and call it the Brockway. He notified the Brockway truck Co of his intentions and they had no objections as long as it was understood that it had no connection to Brockway Truck. The production lasted only a few years and they are fairly difficult to find. My best friend Ken Avery has a Brockway Duel Tandem Horse with a large flatbed on the back upon which he hauls a beautifully restored tractor. This is a very short recap and the full story appeared in Antique Power about 10 years ago. Ed B

Here's a couple pictures I had saved off the internet when I had thoughts of rebuilding back to original.
