These CUSTOM TOW TRUCKS are recent addition to my friend's collection. These are done by the father-son operation in TENN.
The back ends for both the SHELL (I shared the photo of it a while back) & CITIES SERVICE trucks are all custom from Buddy L
dump trucks. Shell is from a 1934 & CITIES SERVICE from 1931 Buddy L dump trucks. They are both 26 inches long!

The O'HARE PACKARD TOW TRUCK is a 1/6 scale of the ORIGINAL piece that rests in a museum. I shared the photo of it a while back
but decided to take a picture of it next to a Buddy L one so that you can see the size difference! The O'HARE truck is 35 inches long!

Pictures do not do justice. One must see them in person to appreciate!

I'm setting up at a AACA swap meet in Shelbyville Tennessee today and tomorrow. The father-son operation mentioned here I'm pretty sure is King-K Originals. They are set up at the swap meet. They have a Texaco/Packard tow truck. This may be like the one mentioned earlier. It's really nice, with a really nice price tag. They do great work. They use top of the line PPG automotive finishes which they buy from our store in Shelbyville. Will try to get some pictures tomorrow and post as henlovestoys pictures are not showing. Detail is pretty awesome. Pat.
