They front hubs do not look right but will go with Coleman also.

I'll agree with ppsyclone on Coleman. The license plate is a little harsh.

Coleman - without a doubt.

Coleman is the answer. This is a 1960's model E-62 that is seeing duty as a wrecker. Perhaps Craig Trout can post with some more of the details on this model. Brian Kelly had this first. Our photo was posted to Facebook by Dale Johnson.

This is a heavily-modified American Coleman E-62 that originally had an angle snow plow and "V" sander bunker mounted on it during it's work life with the Colorado State Highway Department. It was purchased as surplus and rebuilt by Lynn Kennedy and son Scott Kennedy, who upgraded it with a new engine and extended hood, and then mounted with a heavy-duty wrecker-recovery rig. This truck was featured in ATHS "Show Time" 1999, pg. 70, lettered for Summit Towing, Silverthorne, CO.

While I cannot get to it right away, I am planning a full article on the EH-62 for posting in JOT, to include this wrecker-recovery rig that has turned so many heads over the years.

It's a 1962. Sits at the Shell station in Frisco, Colorado now. I have other photos if anyone is interested
By Jeff Lakaszcyck - 4 Years Ago
Hambone, we would love to see more photos of this truck.
By Hambone - 4 Years Ago
These are photos of photos I took in 2001. I am unable to scan any photos.http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/feb513e2-8bfe-4a20-b3ff-62a2.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/c4f7b580-0470-4c45-9bb6-a7d6.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/a51b0bd4-44d0-429f-b620-40b7.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/758de7df-4f5e-40ec-b1ea-088c.jpg
