I'm with Warren on this - probably a modified WWII truck.

Cheers,

  1. WW II truck (mack) with several modofications 1) ffron capsan winch, (even though a Mack NO had a front winch)  2) special split cab, 3) capsan winch added behind cab , but that maybe orginal, the wrecker frame is special, I am not familar with any WW II applications. 4)Th pulley on the left front fender , possibly for a side pull.

I don't think I've ever seen a truck as highly modified as this one that, under it all, still retained it's original look. Brian is right, this truck is a WW2 Biederman P-1 7-1/2 ton 6x6. The half-cab P-1 chassis was built exclusively as a crane carrrier chassis, with the cab along side the hood. Biederman was the only manufacturer to build a wartime crane carrier on the standard 7-1/2 ton chassis. This particular truck, owned by the City of Cincinatti, has had a 2nd cab added for a passenger, a huge winch mounted on the front, and a custom built wrecker of unknown orgin, along with other mods I'm sure. The truck being towed is indeed a Mack E model, judging by the 10 lug Budd wheels it is an EG, the largest of the "small" E series Macks. Thanks to Don MacKenzie for the photo. The others below are from Fred Crismon's "U.S. Military Wheeled Vehicles".
