This Cadillac was retrofitted in 1922 as a tow truck. In fact, the very first tow truck was a Cadillac. In 1916, Ernest Holmes helped to rescue a Model T from a ditch. It took a whole day and six men to free it. Holmes thought there must be a better way. He mounted three poles to the frame of his 1913 Cadillac, added a pulley and ran a chain through it. The tow truck was born.
