A great edition of Autocar Mondays is here with truck 97 of the Broome County Highway Department. This 1988 version is powered by a 350 Cummins connected to a 18 speed transmission. Out back a classic Holmes 750 wrecker is used to tow much newer and “better” rigs back to the shop. Originally setup as snow plow this truck started a second life as a tow truck while many of its brothers headed off to scrap yard. The mounts of yesterday are still used when towing other disabled snow plows.
These awesome photos come to us courtesy of Jeremy D George. They were brought to my attention through the DOT Plow Truck Group on Facebook. Many thanks to Jeremy for his permission to share this classic truck on Daily Diesel Dose.
