Found this old one of a silver truck. When I started they were all red. But there's an old TowTimes magazine that did a story on Haddick's and on the cover of the magazine is a whole fleet of silver trucks.

Love that cab over!!!!! very nice thank you for sharing.


Derek Gould said:

The cabover looks to be identical to the one that Haddicks brought all the way to the Toronto Canada tow show in the mid 1970's.  That was one very long ride to support the show (California to Ontario Canada).  I have a number of photos of it in white.  What is Haddicks doing today?  Do they have a web site and where is that truck now?  Derek

I always liked their midsize GMC, I think it was a century with custom body...

Haddick's Classic 2 Car Carrier




Why transport only one at a time ?
Check out the Butt Plate mounted on the rear of the bed !
I'm sure this was a Haddick's design.

Nice. We called them Tow slings "Scoby" plates out here.....

That's what the old timers here call them too, as well as the extendable towbar arms being referred to as "Scoby" arms.
