When I was 20 years old I saw the truck at a corner gas station. It was the service wrecker since it was new. I told the owner Paul if he ever decided to sell it, I would love to have it. I went on to college and several years later the phone rang. It was Paul. The oil company was changing his station to a convenient store and he decided to retire. I was shocked when he offered me the truck. I am now 70 years old and am now completely restoring it back to its original state as a tow truck.
