In Memory of KyTowBoss who said:

I talked to Johnny Grant at Holmes (miller)  The last time 600's were in the price list was 1984.  The last time 750's were in price list was 1988'
He is going to research to see if he can find last serial numbers on both.  Good question Johny was going by the price lists.  600's were not in
the 1988 price book. At the end Holmes made many things by request.. Let's look for a high serial number on a 750

There were Brand New Holmes 600 Wreckers being spec'd, & purchased by the State of North Carolina (School Bus Garages)in 1988. We picked up a Brand new Holmes 600, on a '88 Ford F700 from Eastern Wrecker Sales, at our School Bus Garage. I now own this same truck. Here's a picture of my low mileage (15000mi.) '88 Ford F700, Holmes 600 ,
