That is awesome. My grandpa used to be a Packard dealer in Nebraska. Very classy and tough vehicles.

That is a great story. Those old converted tow rigs were awesome and still are for that matter.

Sounds like a deal! Locally I know some guys having Packards of those ages but definitely no wreckers:)

That looks like a Manley boom on the packard, my 39 diamond T had one that was similar! Each one was a little different looked homemade but was a factory unit they used around 4" by 3/8 angle iron for the main boom and smaller stuff for the supports and forged pulley block,and snatch block on the end.
