Everyone seems to know this is a big Kenworth 580, an experimental wrecker built during WW2. Only one was built as far as I know, although there was also an armored version. Brian Kelly had this first.

Would there be any connection between this KW and the big wrecker of WWII?  It was made by Pacific, wasn't it?  Was that truck developed independently but parallel to this?  

What engine did the KW use?

Bruce, you are thinking of the M26 and M26A1 Pacific tank transporters. The M26 was armored, and the M26A1 had an open cab similar to this Kenworth 580. The Pacific was much more massive with a Hall Scott 400 engine and a Knuckey dual chain drive bogie. The KW 580 had a Hercules HXD and conventional Timken rear bogies. It had Holmes wrecker equipment. 

M26 Armored cab owned by Frank Buck.
