Ol' Brigader Trucking Along

The trailer makes this truck look decrepit looking, but the tractor itself actually looks pretty good. Someone turned the cut bumper into a full one too. :wink:
Also, this was either in jest or I found an oddball. The tag above the grille says "White GMC" instead of the GMC emblem. :?

The White GMC Brigader had a more slanted nose I think. Great find! :-o

Thanks for the info Paul, looks like I found a bit of an uncommon tractor.

The trailer is definitely ex-Sears/Terminal Freight/Signal Delivery, the gold and black stripe is a giveaway.

The tractor may possibly be ex-Signal, but I doubt it as there are no air deflector brackets in evidence and the truck has small fuel tanks.  Every Signal Brigadier that I ever saw the large linehaul fuel tanks, similar to Yellow's linehaul Brigs.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

Glad you shed some more light on that trailer Gary, I was baffled by it. I haven't seen too many pictures of the Sears and Signal fleets.
