looks like a holmes 400 or 425 power up, gravity down, just before holmes introduced the reversing winch on their wreckers around 1948-1952 vintage, one like it on a 1961 W300 just went to cal from shoshone idaho a couple months ago! tricky and dangerous to operate as it relies on a cone clutch to lower the load...the reversing winch control that holmes made after this was much safer and was used in all holmes wreckers after 1952! not a ubit for novices to use! but a nice parade display!
