Somewhere in Israel in the 50s, a mineral water tanker. Tempo drinks is an old name in Israel and is still in business (http://www.tempo.co.il/homepage-en/), but the Brockway is long gone... Pic via D. Credo.

Wow even after 4 years people are still commenting, guess I'll join in, I'm a 4th gen Concrete guy. We used to Own a brock at the time I was about 12 yrs old, I think it was a dump truck, with a 3rd tag axle. one thing I do remember is that is had a 12-71 sold it couple years back, to a couple fellas in Indiana for road work might still be around.

   Hi, TOM,,,,,10-4 on Sears,, I wasn't certain on the name after that post.
  The truck is rough, but a restore isn't out of the ???   The present owner wants it as an attraction for a period sound/light/music group.,,,,but really knows nothing about what he's got.
          I have a # if anyone wants to talk him out of it,,,,:unsure:

Hi Park...

I believe you are referring to Sears Oil Company that was located in Rome, NY.  They had a nice collection of Brockway's throughout the years.  My Dad's 361 was formerly S21.  Andy Hill had a nice writeup about Sears Oil Company in Brockway Today a few years ago.  He shared this pic with me...

At the Greensboro show this past  weekend there was a '51 Brock' survivor like Shifty posted. Said to have history in Delaware & Mississippi ?
The truck had tires branded   "Spears Oil Co".. Rome ,NY. ,,,,had a large "S" on the perfect grille guard.
That ring a bell with anybody?

IDF Brockways advancing into the southern front during Israel's War of Independence in 1948. Those somehow avoided the embargo set by the US on weapons to the area back then, perhaps because they were classified as civvy street. Cabs were locally made. IDF Archives pic.

Here's another one posted originally by Ferdy de Martin on the Toprun FB page. This is a recent pic and it works (hard) for living in Iran. Note the daycab which is probably a local job.
