Brand new tow truck at Walt's Garage.

That was a very big deal back in the day. Getting a new truck was not so common.  Joe

My grandma told me when Grandpa's Model T ('15 Center Door) 'broke down', he said he had to 'hail' a 'tow car'.

She explained that Roy Wehner at the Police Garage had "worked over" a Deusenberg Touring car, so he could tow disabled automobiles with it.

'Tow TRUCKS' would evolve much later, according to Grandma.
