Canfield Tow Company Wrecker Mailers & Documents

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Postcards • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Yesterday my brain failed me. First, I labeled Mike “Tom”. Second, I misunderstood the brochure Mike sent. Moreover, Mike sent some additional Canfield information, which I’ve added to this post. So, let’s try this again ….

1. Mike’s Canfield Wrecker Mailer Postcard. 8 x 9 Folded , 11 x 9 Unfolded. This is the outside back and front.

This inner portion allowed recipients to resend the postcard back to Canfield for more information.

2. Canfield Wrecker Mailer Postcard from eBay. These images came from eBay and don’t show the whole card. From the eBay ad:  “original Postcard, 8.5 x 5.5, Canfield Tow Truck Equipment.”

3. Additional Canfield information. Mike provided these bulleltins about how to sell the Canfield wrecker to prospects. These first two pages deal with incentives for Jeep dealers for installing Canfield wreckers.

Canfield Folding Wrecker Calgary, Canada **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD**

Glenn’s selling this hard-to-find folding wrecker made by Canfield.

“Want to stand out at the car show this year guys? Here’s your chance, The second image will give you an idea of what this thing looks like once it’s put together I’ve only ever seen pictures of one of these before and this particular one I brought in from North Carolina of all places

This is an extremely rare Canfield folding, PTO winch included and correct for the time. But not necessarily the right one for the Wrecker but no one will ever tell the difference as it is the same brand that Canfield used and the same capacity. Also included is the extension boom”
