I found these photos a few weeks ago while looking for pictures of my uncle for his funeral, he is actually in the photos. These were jobs that my grandfathers towing company did back in the 70's.
Thank you for looking.

Sorry to hear of your grandfather passing, wow those are 2 great pics. Looks to me like a Holmes 480 on one end a 750 at the other end and perhaps a 650 in the middle. very nice would like to have seen more of that Dodge in the bottom pic. Poor white 9000 living up to its name lying on its side. Thank you for sharing.

The end unit in the one picture is a 480 but all of the others were WELD=BUILT. As far as the DODGE she was replaced in 1981 with an AUTOCAR with a WELD-BUILT.
