1950 Ford Tow Truck - By David Honickle

Here's another look at Dave Honickle's great little "clunker" '50 Ford tow truck. Dave started with a Classic Metal Works die-cast 1950 Ford pickup and cut open the hood and driver's door! The flat head six's cylinder head can be seen sitting on the driver's side front fender. The engine bay is completely detailed with the engine block showing the piston tops, head gasket, and all wiring and hoses! That's the battery sitting on the passenger side front fender. The bed is filled with detailed "junk" such as old and extra parts that look like they might fit this old soldier! The wrecker boom was scratchbuilt. Also shown in Photo Gallery 155.
