  1. They might be closed due to COVID 19 shut downs. Try a message on here. You might get some better response
  2. Its great to see that there are still finds like this out there. The fact that the original family is looking to save this is fantastic. unfortunately, its going to be an ambitious, costly, and time consuming project. Still, they have the right people who removed it from its resting spot, and the right shop restoring it. Back in the early 2000's (maybe 2002?) I sold a Hurst GT350 for a client for around $40k, which was all the money they were bringing back then. The buyer flew into NJ and drove it back to California. I always wondered if the guy still has it and says "I can't believe I bought this car so cheap"
  3. I've used Towbook for years. I like it very much. It is easy to understand and the drivers learn it quickly.
  4. That's a shame. I am obviously a salesman at All American Jerr-Dan but I am also a tow guy, not just someone looking to spam up customers. Either your a part of this industry and participate or just don't bother. People would rather do business with people who know the towing industry, vs someone who just wants to make money off them.
  5. That was my hope as well that someone would have responded. It's a shame. I also had Winant Bowmack when I had my first truck back in the 90's. They were very fair. When I bought another truck 5 years ago, they no longer did one truck guys.
  6. I haven't checked into just general liability myself mostly because the trucks I have been selling have been new or used but with a loan so they needed full coverage. I can tell you from experience and from customers, I highly suggest you get full coverage on your truck because should you get into an accident, or the truck is stolen, you have nothing then to buy a new truck with. One of my clients had basic liability on their truck (Progressive) and was totaled out by a woman driving with $1 a day insurance. Their max payout was only $5,000. Now he has no tow truck, and not enough money to buy another one.
  7. You can go to https://www.jerrdanshop.com/ for JD apparel. My dealership only has a few hats in stock, no shirts or socks. JD was giving away socks at the tow show this year in Atlantic City.
  8. Most of these were 345's. Take some interior and inside box shots too.
  9. Hey everyone. I am the Jerr-Dan sales guy for All American Jerr-Dan and I have been compiling a reference list for towing companies to help either start or expand their business. I have IAA and COPART contact info, Manheim and Adesa, list of Motor Clubs, Load Boards etc. The biggest thing is insurance for these guys. I am finding it hard to get insurance companies who are willing to sign on a new start up company with one truck. Progressive will, but they seem to want to charge these guys over $20k a year for insurance, I'm trying to help my clients become successful right out of the gate by giving them this info. Can anyone recommend companies you use, especially in NJ tri-state area? These are the companies I have on my list so far, but most don't want to do start ups: Chester Point Insurance Campisano Insurance East Coast Insurance Group Farmers Insurance Winant and Bomack YouZoom Insurance Services Progressive Thank you very much for your advice.
  10. My gut feeling is $1,500 the way it sits. Clean it up, get it running, maybe $3500. It would make a cool camper conversion.
  11. Try getting a title through Vermont. Here is a link to the procedure. Works with cars and motorcycles. http://www.chinonthetank.com/2014/04/get-a-title-with-a-vermont-registration/
  12. If anyone is interested in a new or used wrecker or flatbed, I am the Jerr-Dan sales consultant for AAJD. Feel free to message me. Thank you.
  13. Every time I see this truck, I love it even more. Nice job!
