Topic Originally created on Tow411 in November of 2003:


This is some of my fathers trucks in 1972, including the new D600 Dodge with a WWII era W45.

The Ford was bought new with a Holmes 500, one big drum, one small.

That unit was put on a new Dodge 1 ton in 1975.

Good lookin Fleet !!! Looks like the Big Dodge had a W-35, the Little Dodge looks like a Single line of some sort, and the Little Ford looks & sounds like a Holmes 500 Town & Country model (small drum/big drum).

Photos like these are priceless ......thumb.gif
