Name that crane

A reader in the USA has sent us a photograph of an old crane that perhaps one of you can identify?

Can you identify this crane?

It looks as though it has some sort of unofficial superlift counterweight in place in the form of a tank trailer. Other than that we assume it is fairly original.

While it has a telescopic boom it is cable, rather than hydraulically luffed.
We understand that it is sitting in a scrap yard somewhere in Texas, although this is an assumption based on the location of our correspondent. Clearly it has not been used for some time.

Not a clue, but to me it must be fully operational, judging by the hoses going into the front wheel, pumping air.I also like a very innovative variable weight water tank counterweight system.
