This unit was purchased brand new by my Grandfather in 1980.


The Chassis is a 1980 Autocar DC series with a 400 Cummins and a 5x4 Trans with 58 rears. The working end is a WELDBUILT 40 Ton wrecker. The front drag winch is a fully Hydraulic 35000lbs winch the rear is a Braden 100000lbs. The booms extend Hydraulically and power raise and lower with Hydraulic powered winches.


She was a MONSTER in her day. This is what I learned to drive and do heavy recovery with.

That truck is truly amazing in pictures...But let me tell you it is even better in person, I had the opportunity not to long ago to see that truck. It is SWEET. The history on the truck is even better, still having that truck is just awesome!!! Can't wait to see it all fixed up.

It has been an honor and a privilege to have been able to archive the history of the industry.
