    I can't be the only one who buys it by the 5 gallon pail. My pickup gets 2 gallons on it every year, and the wand gets it in the doors. Around here it snows from somewhere around Halloween till April 1, if you want anything to last you have to coat it. 10 year old truck can be swiss cheese.

    I used that on the cabs of the fertilizer trucks the AG company owned that I worked for. It kept the batteries from falling through the box.

    One piece windshield-looks like a Mack A Model cab. And the A models were only produced between 1950 to 53 IIRC- The hood louvers are a problem for me though.

    Thinking White or Corn Queen, they liked flat one piece windshields

    Hendrickson or Federal? Federals had squarer cab.

    Federals used a split windshield, side windows really only match Mack A model.

    Brockway cab is pretty square and slightly wider.

    Ok-well then. (95%} of Hendrickson trucks used your favorite cab and damn near the same nose/Grille -Hog Grille. Here is a fine example of a rotary tailed snorkeler.

    I'd buy the "A" model mack idea.

    Sure looks like the right windshield and the ribs in the door and sculpting around the door window, and hood line.

    I vote Mack, If you zoom in the doors have a triple relief, like the white mack. It is in mack country, missing the headlights and not being able to see the full grill are difficult, Did Brockway use Mack cabs then.
