Re: Manley crane identification

Greetings

The other two things to look for is the original Manley snatch block and winch crank. These are usually missing on all of these early wreckers

Re: Weaver auto ambulance

$1200 is a little much with out the pole.
The original pole has a unique casting on the end of the pipe to center the inner extension pipe.

Re: California registration rule

FYI Not all AAA clubs or offices are created equal. Most AAA offices will do the basic DMV renewals and registrations changes but not old registrations and the verifying VIN numbers, they will refer you to a lien service or contractor.
