Wrecker

Owner's comments: "This a dually wrecker I bought for parts, VIN unknown. Unfortunately, there was no hope of salvage, it was totally hammered. It was quite funny watching the scrap man trying to lift it off the trailer as it was disintegrating. Story goes, it was in service somewhere along the Jersey turnpike. It found it's way to Richmond, VA where it was relieved of its wrecker boom and put to use as a yard dog dragging other Jeeps around.
Miraculously, this truck yielded the best Vigilante 327 out of the five I have collected. The engine will be rebuilt and installed in my other wrecker. I hope to use the rest of the drivetrain to convert another 67 J-truck I have into a dually flatbed.
