1955 1st Series Chevy truck. Chain driven double boom Ernest Holmes wrecker body. Dually rear, 4 speed manual, original trans, 1963 chevy 235 6 cylinder motor that doesn't run. Needs a lot of love, but didn't want to scrap it. Frame is solid, as is the wrecker body. All original and the body/cab was never off the truck. Nice body lines, missing original hood. A fair amount of rust, but fix it, and put this baby back to work! Needs a floor, everything else is definitely salvageable. All tires hold air, and should not be a problem to load up onto a roll back. Steers, and the doesn't have brakes, although i didn't try the e-brake.

No Title,

Need gone as i'm building a pole building in it's spot.

$1400 obo.

Sorry, i'm brand new and learning where things are here!!

Yes, need pictures...

What Model is the Holmes unit? There should be a small brass tag on the passenger side Mast...515, 525 ?????

Does it have the axle cradle on the back...looks like a set of fork lift arms that fold into the back of the bed? I'm looking for some of the parts for mine that would be in the tool box.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the interest. It's a 515E, is what it states on the tag. Yes, it's a complete chain driven unit with the cradle on the back end. I included 4 pictures for now, you can contact me if you need more, as i have that info on the post too.

I'm not seeing the axle cradle on the rear of the truck, has it been removed? Post a rear view of the truck...

Thanks,
