Here's one used on a wrecker, and one of my favorite trucks, the Brockway SFA 300 series, a 360 I think.  This was shot on the Pa Turnpike near Warrendale about 1990. With big square fuel tanks and stacks behind the sleeper, things can't get much cooler. :-D



This is a sexy truck if I have ever seen one!!  I can't stand most R model Macks because of the headlights, but I love the Brockways and this example is just awesome

I was kicking myself for not taking a detail shot of their logo when I had the chance.  I even went back to try and find the Macks but had no luck.  Then on 11/9/08 I found this 9300 International sitting in a lot in Elizabeth, Pa and was able to knock that one off of my to-do list.




I really like the looks of this ol' binder. Is it for sale?

I've been past it a couple of times recently, including this past Sunday, and it's been sitting with a For Sale sign on it.

I see lots of Mack's here with Rest Rite sleeper but I'm wondering.....I drove a few 87/88 R Models that had Alumi Bunks with the stack cutouts. Were the bunk suppliers a regional thing?

Also did Rest Rite build all the CH bunks for Mack, of just aftermarket? I had a 2000 CH with the 70" midrise and wondering if they were built by Mack or someone else?

I missed this post way back when it was started, good to know on the early Rest Rite series, I was going to say the Road Boss Whites reminded me of Detroit Pittsburgh, I remember seeing quite a few of those taking the short cut thru Canada, Buffalo to Pt. Huron, quite the variety of rigs back then.

Awesome build on that model Paul!
