What's the red jigger with the crane and pulley assembley hanging over the roof, twin air cleaners prominent?
Looked at first glance maybe a basic R model Inter cab, but whatever she be, she's a mean beast.
Looks a little like a mixture of "Long Tom", offset cab, 6 stud spiders on front.
Maybe a Hendrickson special?

Dave,
Some type of drilling rig and possibly uses the truck engine to power the rig. Looks like it may have had a bigger radiator installed to help keep it cool as there is no ram air effect while drilling.
Cheers Steve

Paul, Ed Edminston in Dubbo is the only Brockway man I know of. He has imported this one pictured. There is also a RHD cowl and chassis in Archie Baines boneyard.

I agree about girls looking better without tattoos. I don't like tats on blokes, either!

There was a Brockway rigid in Canberra, snowplow? some 40 or 45 years ago. I think I was given the badges off it. I will have a look through my old stuff. I never actually saw the truck.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Coming back from Adelaide a young lady in the passenger seat of a Deni ute flashed me, and quite a few other truck drivers too, going by the chat on the UHF!
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Shamelessly stolen from the interweb and other spots, and none of it Yanky, but close from just across the border in Canada




A Canadian KW in Kiwi land
