This is the goat rail mounted hoist we had on the FC we used to have. It was mounted to the back corner of the goat rail and when stood up it could swing over the side. 12V winch made it easy to get mounted spare on and off the roof. The one time I had to use it, the stud holes on an outer dual had been buggered and I was really thankful to have a wheel with me. The only reason I don't have a similar setup on my PT38 is that the Hemmings Motor News guys had the goat rails removed back in the day, so there is nothing strong enough to mount a similar hoist to.
