1936 Chevy / 1937 Manley Wrecker... Yup, It Fit In Our Showroom!

Recommended Posts

May 2016:


We want to thank Bill's Towing  (long retired) from Upper Sandusky, Ohio for selling this to us.  He restored it many many years ago and it has spent most of it's life at the Tow Museum in Chattanooga.  We promised him visiting rights if he would sell it to us.  We put it in the showroom for all passer-byes and customers to enjoy.  We will get it out a couple of times a year and maybe take it to a couple of tow shows,, will see!

That truck is so nice. I would love to own one some day. I would hate to drive it I wouldnt want to ruin it. Glad it fit in the showroom to keep it safe.

Nice Wrecker unit. I see Bill had it labeled as a 1 ton, but according to my Chevrolet Master Parts Book, a 1936 Chevrolet "RA" series truck is a,  131in. wheelbase , single rear wheel, 1 1/2 ton. The "RB" series is a 131in. wheelbase , dual rear wheel 1 1/2 ton.

This was a memory that lives on in Ricks Showroom and now on TowForce.
