  • Yeah...soo.....I just committed myself to buying this wrecker

    One in, one out, so Ol' Goliath will be moving down the road to a new home, but man, this thing RULES. It is a '68 C50...292/4-speed. Truck is in Buffalo, NY....gonna be a long ride home at 55mph. If I can time it right, Chad will hopefully come out and co-pilot it.

    Before you sell Goliath, you gotta get a few pics of it hitched up to the wrecker.

        Paid the asking price....once I saw the guy was going to have it squashed I couldn't see it go.

        I did play a bit of roulette though. It started out at 2500 bucks a few weeks ago, then to 2000, I bought at 1500.

              One piece at a time!

              The truck lived it's whole life inside and was then stored in a barn. It is hella clean. There's some rot in the driver's side rocker, but other than that, nothing. All the mechanicals work and the split boom wrecker (with two 15 ton winches....woot!) is fully working as well.

              My kids are going to freak out.

                Depending on when you run threw NY I would be willing to follow along. I imagine you would run the thruway.

                  Nice! Yeah, it looks like running up to Buffalo and back home on 90 is going to be the route. It would be cool to have a slow ass convoy rolling down the road.

                    Sooooo, you finally figured out a way to move the Jav around? Now you can hook it to the back and haul it around a track. At least it will have made a lap!!

                              Sad to see Goliath go. Cool wrecker, don't get me wrong, but all the same...
