Lost and Found – Old Tow Trucks

These two old tow trucks stand guard to the gates of Dobbins Auto Parts in Adams, NY. I’ve seen a few photos of the treasures that lie within and I have to say they are nothing short of impressive for the old car and truck obsessed. Even though I stopped by during the middle of a weekday they appeared to be closed. Just as well seeing as I was on my way back to work but I have heard they are actively crushing much of their collection so a return trip is on the bucket list. Can you identify the truck at the forefront of the photo? Chevy?

    Truck in foreground is a ’39 or ’40 Chevrolet.

    Truck in background is a ’48- ’53 GMC, possibly a Diesel.

    I was looking at Alex Lyons & Sons Auction site, and saw a photo of the GMC tow truck pictured here… must be this guy is all done and is selling everything off…

      You are correct. He has quite the collection of old trucks and cars. Almost everything is going to the auction or the scrap man this May. I have heard he is keeping his Brockway wrecker.
