That photo actually appears to show a rig constructed not for maintenance/repair, but for using the vehicle to power a pump or something similar. Note the drum in contact with one rear tire...That was done a lot, back in the old days.

Or perhaps it is an early chassis dyno!

if you have time to kill, check out shorpy.com. there are thousands of old hi-res photos to check out. Lots of dealerships, garages, service stations and the like. Here's one of my favorites:

There are lots of pics here, mostly from Michigan (mostly the U.P.):

Lots of other subjects at their main site. If you're from that area, prepare to spend a few hours!

Here's one from abroad (Netherlands). It's the garage where my grandpa used to work. He's the one behind the wheel. Must be 80 years ago orso...
