Is the E cabover Ballantine truck still in CT?

Was it at the Hayes Museum or the Golden Age of Trucking Museum? . I only have the pic because the Box came from Froelicks Farm in Huntington L.I. and my cousin Gene and I chased after the MACK for years

Last time I heard about it, the truck belonged to a collector in the Danbury area and he had for sale. Just wondering where it was. It may have been at Golden Age but I must not have visited when it was on display.

Schroyer out of Ohio has brought an axle back Jimmie to shows. I think it is a day cab. How about the ones that were on air ride front and back too? and I believe independent suspensions.

Mackdaddy Pretty sure Schroyer's Crackerbox is air ride front and rear. I saw it a few times at ATHS Shows. Suspension is different to say the least. They have quite the collection of trucks. Not just one brand but many varied ones. All nicely done. Joe D.

the blue one belonged to Mack Cheesley(not sure if last name is correct) from Phoenix, AZ. He had some nice Macks at one time. I have not heard or seen of him for a few years?

Those air ride crackerboxes had a boxed section frame with a big X in the middle which doubled as an air reservoir. Interesting design.........not a good one,but still interesting!

That front suspension looks pretty advanced for the early 60's, I'd say ahead of its time.

That what was thinking, but there a1937 Orange AC that has a Cummins HB600 dealer installed when new and it's a few inches longer than the Gas 6. Would the 4 been a Bseries or the Marine style Cummins ran at Indy in 1930's? Paul

It was his original lowboy tractor, puffed up shiny 290 and 13,that he took the 3rd axle out and made it into his show truck even though he uses it for work occasionally. The one on the right he just bought this spring, All original 250,. 10 speed, rubber block suspension with 167k miles.
