the oldest is the 330 Holmes hand crank.  The odd one is a 500 with side legs, but it does not have the legs.

I can remember me working a 500 with the side body levers--my dad had many Holmes units--I could reach them as a younger operator,---all of those units need to be restored --I remember a 64 Chev c60 with 600 holmes we had and it had the side control levers--I was the winch man thru my early years--did alot of the hooking-up--the drivers liked me to go out with them ,I did their job(realize that now)--no I was born into this type work and still do it everyday-----hope the owner of these units maybe will re-build them or sell to someone who will keep them in our industry?????
