They used to be everywhere, they have been outlawed in nsw due to the low gvm, not sure about other states.

A dodgy Lebanese smash repair place in Alexandria still has one out the front of their workshop.

It could be legitimate, I think there was a reprieve that allowed current operable units to stay but no new ones to be registered.

Oh I think its' legitimate, the poor car was just half covered by discarded bumper bars and guards at its' rear end that the workshop looks like it couldn't be bothered disposing of. The WB Towie itself looks like it hasn't driven in many a year.

And just like Wheel Nut says below, I remember seeing these all the time in the 1980's when I was a kid. I loved seeing them. They looked and sounded tough. Australian made!

I wonder if in future, the sub-culture of OH Ambulance owners will be emulated in OH WB Tow Truck owners.

a lot of these were used as chasers-get to the prang first,sign the victims/car owners up(i think they had to be in an approved tow truck)then the real(read proper)tow truck would lumber up 10 mins later.quite a few ended up with hot 8's(454's etc)to be first on the scene.

Yeah, I remember seeing heaps of them around Sydney in the late 70's and early eighties - pretty cool sight.

There was one recently up for sale on the Gold Coast on Ebay, I'm pretty sure it was the second time around on Ebay, don't know if it sold this time?

But not the one I saw.

The one on the goldy I'm pretty sure, had a single rear axle with dual wheels.

Good to see there is still a few of these floating around :)

The thing is, its still a Holden ute. Its not designed to constantly to a car. How long would the gearbox last for example, or the rear leaves..
