The Watson "Towboy" is a bolt-in, hand crank wrecker unit that was produced to help Garage owners move vehicles easily around the shop without tying up the big Wrecker that was used mainly for emergency vehicle retrieval.  The Towboy unit was easily installed or removed in about 5 minutes from any vehicle and proved invaluable to many a Automotive shop owner.  More pictures of the Towboy can be seen on the '57 FC-150 that I own.  Here's a link to the truck.
