I recently bought a 1943 Federal 606 that once belonged to Matt's Garage in Elkhart Indiana. Matt's bought the Federal in 1953 and owned it until 2005. The owner was listed as Harriet Matt. I've been told that the operator may have been Ed Matt. I'm trying to find out any history I can about this truck, especially any photos of it while it still had the wrecker boom. This Federal was originally an Army Air Force C2 wrecker and would have had a Gar Wood boom like the orange Federal below. Any help tracking down this truck's history, including information about the Matt family would be greatly appreciated.
It seems my photos are not posting for some reason.
The photos went to my profile instead of posting here. Hmmm.
