Now here is a truck that I’ve often told myself I should stop and check out but for some reason never did. It’s a 1974 Brockway 759 that is clearly losing the battle with rust. Thankfully David had the good sense to grab a photo of this truck before it crumbles away for good. As the cab shows this truck has been a few different colors over the year. The yellow/green color points back to a day when the 759 was a town plow truck. Now the truck resides in the country, quite literally put out to pasture. Under the hood a Cummins waits to roar back to life.
I suppose it could look worse after sitting for 12 years! But you know me, I’m a softie when it comes to old trucks. Save them all is my motto. Thanks again to David for the share!
Eric, not sure where this truck is but the color on the cab may indicate it was once a Cortland County truck. They had a ton of these 359/759 short hood high cab models back in the day. I have pictures of a few of them sitting in a junk yard in East Syracuse from about 20+ years ago. This one looks a lot better than those did even then!
Just over the border in Tully.
