Thanks for sharing. I have another late 70's 440 in the making, and these ads are right in line with that truck.

Always wondered who 850 that was? Rumor has it that it was O'Hares. Thanks for the post. Love looking at old Holmes stuff. Especially Holmes 850 items. Has anyone ever seen a Holmes 850 postcard?

Hello @townhooker! My name is Sarah and I am a TV producer for a show called Highway Thru Hell. We are currently putting together a special episode on Holmes wrecker and I came across your super cool Holmes ads and we would potentially like to use it for our show.

Would you please give me a call at 604-688-3937 ext 146 or email me at schow@greatpacifictv.com. It would be great to chat with you.

Hi Sarah. There is a tower in New Jersey that has many notebooks containing Holmes wrecker pamphlets and sales brochures. Let me know if you want his information for additional material.
