Cool. It looks like one you would see on a Model T or A. Good luck finding a new home for it.

That's what it needs to be on,something smaller.I've had it along time, drug it out of the weeds last year and was going to see what it would look like on my AC,but it just too small,guess if i can't find a home for it I'll drag it out back again.

That's way cool. Somebody will grab it for a one of a kind resto-wrecker. If you were a lot closer I'd grab it up. 

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

Very similar to the Manley crane on my old Diamond T,the angles are a little lighter weight, but that looks like a Manley hand winch,any markings on it? I have photos from the 40's if I can figure out how to send them!

I just googled Manley wrecker crane, the picture on the left is identical to the one on my dad's truck which I bought(for 50.00) the whole truck when he sold the salvage yard.The original booms were bolted together,not welded, and heavily braced.We're a few still being used in the 60's and 70's including mine!
