This is my 59 Segraves/Chevrolet. It has the original 348 engine. I purchased it from the local fire department here in middle tenn. It had 16,000 miles on it
and in excellent condition. We use it for
shows, tailgating and parades. It has original paint and interior. Hope you enjoy.

Welcome to the Stovebolt and nice truck! You don't see many Chevrolets using the big 10 lug front axles.

Do you have the 5-speed or Powermatic? 2-speed rear?

You can see my 57 Fire Engine in the gallery, click in the link below my signature.

Mike,

Its a 5 speed (no 2 speed splitter). I am a big fan of your trucks. I also have a 57 lcf with an almost perfect body, a 72 427 tractor, a 56 1/2 ton, a 63 suburban, 50 1/2 ton and an SSR for the truck side. I am looking for a 56/57 10500. My dad and his brothers had a trucking company starting right before WW II. They ran Chevy tractors and later moved to the big KW's starting in 70's. but I loved those old Chevys and still do. They had a 56 10500 with a 322 and a 59 with the 348. According to my uncle that 348 was the horse. I had my eye on that truck for twenty years and knew it would come up for sale one day and I was lucky enough to get it. I originally intended to convert it to a tractor but decided it was to nice to do that. Hence the 72 tractor. Geary Trussell

Geary,

Beautiful truck! But throw an extension ladder on that bad boy - it looks naked!!! grin

Then find somewhere to pump that thing - it's a blast!

Geary,

I also have a 1956 9200 LCF with the 322 and the Powermatic (6-speed Allison) transmission. This truck is a future restoration project. I need to find a better cab (has to be '56 or '57) or replacement cab fender extensions (the curved part of the step/door area).

I'm working on a '56 3100 for the wife to drive (resto-rod) and after that's done I'm going to do a '56 4400 NAPCO, Mini Pumper/Brush Truck. Then I'll do the LCF, unless I find a '56/'57 Tandem first dance

What size is your LCF? Is it on the road, and if so how do you like driving it?

I'd love to see pictures thumbs_up

Take care!

That is a beautiful truck. I am very partial to the task force trucks. Love the chrome on the front. Our truck came with bumper and grill painted red which is normal for Oren.

buggy,

You're doing a great job with your LCF. I wish I was half as talented...

One word of caution, take care of that hood emblem. They are NOT the same as the conventional hood emblems, they are flatter and could be hard to replace.

Take care!
