Freightway Corp B-Model
« on: November 19, 2018, 08:36:06 PM »
Came across this old Mack sitting in the weeds along US22/40 west of Cambridge OH back on Sat 9/22. I thought it might be a company documented on Fred Gruin's pages, but that didn't pan out.  The only real info I could find on the web was the obituary below for one of the founder's sons who passed away earlier this year.  There's some good info in it however. 

There is a longtime steel hauler, Kaplan Trucking, still in business and based in Cleveland.  I have to wonder if there is any relation between the original owners.

There aren't any badges on the truck, but I'm thinking it may be a B-67 as it looks to have the shorter hood.  Maybe someone could confirm.

Love that shot Paul, what a cool setting too!! Looks like she has the cancer, just brush away some of the bush and let her rest!! Too cool!

I think the short hood is a B-67?? Not sure.
