Rare Brockway seen at the Big Rig Show in Springfield, IL | cars







This boss-looking Brockway E-361T caught my eye as I walked by 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 rarely seen make.




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

The truck featured today is a 1970 Brockway E-31T owned by Tom Millard IV of Covington Township, Pennsylvania. The restoration from the ground up was a father and son project that took seven years to complete. The original engine was a Detroit Diesel 671, but the Millards replaced it with a later turbocharged Model 671 TAB engine. The truck has a RT-910 Fuller transmission and an Eaton rear axle.
