Ford/Holmes Barn Find....


Recommended Posts

Originally Created in October of 2016


My buddy restores & sells 73-79 Ford trucks and came across this wrecker other day. He bought it as a project to restore...



They cleaned it up a little and got some good gas to it....Fired right up.





Its got a 71' 460 in it...DOVE heads so it was a performance/Interceptor engine I would assume. 4wd & everything works.
I'm thinking it will make a nice addition to our fleet....

Ed 71 460 wasn't much for performance, lower compression by then, dove heads are 1970 heads with smaller chambers, so someone has played with it, looks like a nice add to the collection!

The mast had 2 angle irons welded to it, top & bottom, on both sides. They were all cut off
at some time but I can't recall them being factory or what they may have been for?

I like these old wreckers. I have old 480'S…old 750's that we use every day…..and LLoyds old 850. Is it just me or does it seem like 7 or 8 years ago
a lot of people loved these older trucks and commented on them but now it seems interest in them is way down? Just saying….. Maybe its just me
