Brockway 758

41 posts in this topic

While waiting for paint to dry on the Cascadia, I decided to start on a Brockway 758. I got the cab conversion from AITM. I am using a Diamond Reo kit for the chassis and an engine from the Freightliner DD cabover kit. So far I have added a recess to the firewall to fit the cummins engine, shortened the frame, and used a piece of tubing to replicate a tag axle. I am using a metal steerable front axle from KFS.

Excellent work. Great use of the tag axle on the tandem. Very accurate and correct, and often overlooked detail.

Looks nice, Kurt. 

I need to add a Brockway to my connection none of these days.  Just seems like the right thing to do living in CNY.

Very nice!! I like the tag axle idea. I'm planning a little different tag set up on the Highbinder that I hope to build next year.

Is the driven axle in the front or back?

Kurt are you looking at opening up the hood? I know the resin is pretty thick on the hood but could be thinned.

Thanks guys! I am planning on leaving this one as a curbside. It will have an engine, but the hood won't open.
