The Manley Auto Crane came out in the early 1920s and they would be refitted on on trucks into the 1940s. Manley made several other auto repair shop equipment. They go well with TT Fords. You might find one ready to go. The hand crank winch would be the hardest to replicate.

I did a google search for manley wrecker and found a ton of pictures https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&tbm=isch&sxsrf=ACYBGNSYodQYg8gkAbWomWpa8LakqLzGSQ%3A1579482272424&source=hp&biw=1327&bih=777&ei=oPwkXr_4FY6QsAWty7yABw&q=manley+wrecker+boom+for+sale&oq=manley+wrecker&gs_l=img.1.2.35i39j0j0i24.3803.13232..17417...1.0..0.199.1163.12j2......0....1..gws-wiz-img.......0i131j0i5i30.JKcJnvYuJNs

If the link doesn't work here is a good one to do some scaling from.

I have a friend with a Model TT that he wants to convert to a tow truck

One of the pictures he found is a truck with an ATHS logo on the side:

Is anyone familiar with this truck or know how to track down the owner?

I think my friend will be building the boom from scratch and some measurements would be helpful

Also, If anyone has a source for the crane or information about the conversion I'm sure he would appreciate that too
