History of Tow Truck
In 1916 a man by the name of John Wiley drove his Model T Ford down into a creek bed near Chattanooga, Tennessee. He not only got it stuck but rolled it over, Among the 6 rescue workers was a man named Ernest Holmes Sr. It took the 6 men about 8 hours to get the car out of the creek. Thinking there must be a better way, Ernest Holmes went back to the garage and started working on what was called a Hoisting Apparatus For Automobile. His design was bolted on the back of a 1913 Cadillac, since trucks were still in there infancy stage. The first time he takes his new tow truck out to help another motorist it failed. The rescue workers had to fall back on the old manpower solution. He soon realized what was wrong with his wrecker. He went back to the drawing board and modified it with a pair of outriggers. This was to stabilize his design while hoisting vehicles. He Knew, in spite of the people who had no faith in his idea, including his Mother and Father that there was a need for his tow truck, Maybe because his neighbor L. C. Decker who assisted him, lost an eye while out on a job rescuing a vehicle the manual way. A true American success story of ingenuity. .
In November 1917 he filed for a Patent US1254804 and his patent was granted January 1918. With his patent secured he started building his brand of wreckers which he mounted on the back of used cars, his first production model was the Holmes 485 which sold for $485. His business continued to do well until the US join into World War II when the materials for his tow trucks were nonexistent or in short supply. The Holmes Company did well even through the Great Depression not laying off a single worker.
