gots to love the old tow trucks. I think My favorite would have to be a cabover 48-53 Chevy/GMC.
How about a line of them.
Here's my POS... no brakes, straight pipe on the 292.. it's a fun ride.
Here is a old international locally rusting in piece, not to sure if its a wrecker but I guess it kinda fits here.
Isn't that a diamond t ?
Here's a Model T
Yep, and it needs to finish rusting at my place.
Looks great Skip can't wait to see your dad takin' it for a spin!
Didn't sell at pate? It was a good buy but i shot the wad already.

Figured I'd be in trouble when this thread started. Two hrs's after I saw this post I was out swapping out the dead flathead 6 in MY Ford wrecker. A 52 F6 that has been happily sitting as yard art for the past 5 yr's. Gotta love them old wreckers. Great Thread. Keep em coming.
Here it is as of 9-25-09....Interior in 1-2 weeks...then give to my Dad on Nov 4th for his 77th Birthday...............
Wow ! Looks great I am sure your dad will be thrilled...make sure you do a follow up post for us after he gets it!
These are a few that I found at a local "horders" place.
Here is a picture I snagged off the internet a few years ago. I wish I knew more about it. It looks like it was made from a Cadillac sedan body and a truck chassis. Pretty classy looking rig, yours will be too from the looks of it!
Got this moving under it's own power today. Ist time in 25 yrs. Freed up the rear controls and powered the winch cable in and out. Now am swapping in a better grill assy and door glass. Next is to attach the sling and see how this works on an old MK 4 Lincoln I've been wanting to reposition for a while.
my contribution. this old wrecker saw service in ponca city okla for most of it's life. now sitting behind the barn.
Heres one i lettered.
Saw this one a few years ago.

As a kid I had two or three local tow trucks that I thought were the coolest.Most were home built unlike todays wreckers.
