I love this vehicle. First one I ever saw was at 1st Cavalry Museum at Ft Hood many many years ago. Those are my grandsons standing in front of it.
I drove by museum last month, it is still resting same place.
Little more info.

A similar wrecker is discussed on the G741.org.

It was used in the 1963 movie, It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

Plenty of photos of it on google, as well.
