Rare Brockway seen at Big Rig show in Springfield, IL

  • 0
Brockway E-361T

This boss-looking Brockway E-361T immediately caught my eye as I strolled the ATHS National Convention held June 9 - 11 at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. I chose it for today’s story because it was an excellent restoration, in an attractive color scheme of a seldom-seen marque.

EVENT FOLLOW UP: The American Truck Historical Society’s National Convention & Truck Show, held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on June 9 - 11, 2022, was quite a show as I suspected it was going to be! There were over 700 trucks on display, from as small as a Chevy Corvair wrecker (yes, a tow truck), up to a bright yellow tractor for oversize loads, with an oversize sleeper that I swear was as big as my first apartment.

Today’s featured truck, is a 1970 Brockway E-31T, owned by Tom Millard IV, of Covington Township, Pennsylvania. The ground-up restoration was a father/son project which took seven years to complete. The original engine was a Detroit Diesel 671, but the Millards replaced it with a later model 671 TAB engine with turbocharger. The truck has a RT-910 Fuller transmission and an Eaton rear axle.

I hope you’re going to the HCCM’s Father’s Day Car Show at the National Museum of Transportation today. Take your better half, a friend and if you have some kids take them too! Stay safe and healthy and remember to ‘Keep on Cruisin’!
