B61 Fleet Addition

Looks like I am going to be able to acquire a B61 diesel tractor to add to the fleet soon.

This truck is interesting to me in that, like my R600, I know the entire history of the truck from new.

The unit belonged to Louis Johnson Trucking based nearby in East Palmyra, NY. It spent its life in service to New York City

and Milton, Pa. I'm kind of excited about this one as the Louis Johnson B-Macks were my 1st exposure to big trucks as a kid.

I've also found a fifties vintage Fruehauf tandem axle stainless round nose trailer to put behind the new B61, or my B67.

Things are looking up!

I also like the idea of having the complete history of a truck. Once the history with photos are put together into a kind of storyboard along with some aspect of the restoration, it gives the vehicle a life of its own and it's something that makes quite an impact on those folks who grew up seeing and listening to those trucks and drivers. Best of luck!

John,

Thanks for the insight - I have an R600 that I also know the history of from new. I have had it for sale, but got to feeling guilty about seeing it leave the area, so I've decided to pull it out of the ads and see if I can drum up enough work for it to stay busy enough to justify keeping.
