TowZone Posted July 8, 2018 Share Posted July 8, 2018 Found a post by Jim Widmann of Widmann's Garage: This truck was a former City of Trenton NJ emergency fuel truck. It had 1200 miles on it when I bought it. I took the tank off. If you look close, it still has the original tires on it. This truck was a 5100S, it was 110" WB. I took the complete Holmes 470 wrecker and body off a 57 Chevy, which I bought from the original owner, but was completely rotted out. The wheel well was a little off, as you can see, I installed rubber extensions after cutting them out. The dolly wheels are also original to the Holmes. Everything worked and I did use it a couple times. The wheel base was way to short, and the front wheels would come off the ground. Needed to have a counter weight on the front, but it was fun to drive. Jim Widmann said: It was Sold years ago, another I should've kept, oh well.
