It does look like a spitting image of Mater, but thats not why I bought it. I just loved the look of the truck.

I updated the profile with a link to more pictures.

As I add more sets they will be shown there.

Let me know if you need specific shots, I'll take them when I have an opportunity.

This is one of the coolest old trucks I've seen in a L-O-N-G time! I need plenty more pictures, since I'm planning to build a "Realistic" 1:25 scale model of what "Mater" from "Cars" would look like were it a real truck. Yours is, by far, the best example of a 1950's wrecker I've seen in quite a while. trophy image

About

It used to be a gas station shop truck. Not much history on it. Found it in Craigslist and began the restoration.

Specs

The wrecker apparatus looks like it was originally a Holmes, but has been monkeyed with and bastardized. It seems to have met some kind of catastrophic failure in the past.

The truck has a late 60's Chevy 327 in it currently

Factory Options

4 speed, with a compound low, 2 Ton Dual Speed Rear End.
