What have you been doing for the past three decades? Hopefully something a little more productive than sitting out in the elements like this 1966 Brockway 459. I paid a visit to the resting place of this old truck in the spring of 2020. At that time my buddy Dave had enlisted the help of Clarence and his Brockway 361 wrecker to help pull this old cabover out of the weeds. And when I mean weeds I mean weeds. The grass in some spots was easily four feet or more. Strew about the place were various pieces of metal and other heavy truck parts which made the recovery all the more fun. In the end it all went rather smoothly and another Brockway was started on the long road to recovery.
Some of you no doubt will take note of the many other trucks that make a brief appearance in the video. They are all part of an impressive collection that we will see more of a future time. Believe me when I say there is MUCH to see.
If only the 459 was able to be started and driven out under her own power like the R700…
Great video Eric! Looking forward to seeing more about this truck’s restoration and more photos from the property that it came from.
Love the music, great soundtrack
Great day, Great video, Great save.
