Default Old reel.....?

I found this old reel in my Dad's chevy blazer. Ive had the truck scince pops died of pancreatic cancer in '09...but only just found this old reel behind the spare tire the other day! He introduced me to fly fishing years ago so you can imagine how much the reel means to me. Curious about the "wire" type backing it was loaded with too. Image to follow .
