That is the same model Holmes I started with in 1964, only my truck was a E40 Studebaker!  Yea, I said Studebaker.  1959 with a 289 V-8, 4 speed with a 2 speed rear end.  900x20 tires, but hydraulic brakes.  I still remember the welder who put it all together at the factory signed his name on the right rear inner wheel well of the wrecker body. "Buck" signed his work.

Some of the things we did with it back then I would want to talk about today.
