Not to be confused with the King Size Peterbilt Wrecker (K-20), released for 1979.
The Peterbilt Wreck Truck, also known as the Peterbilt Tow Truck, is a subtype of the 1981 Peterbilt casting. It is most closely related to the Peterbilt Tanker Truck version; the bracket behind the cab that holds the top of the crane booms is used in the tanker truck to secure the shell of the tank.
The Peterbilt Wreck Truck was issued in the following versions:
