From Mike :

As many of you may know, back in 2000 I started the 6066 GMC Trucks Website and the search was on for a truck. I had been online for a few years by then and knew about sites like eBay.

While searching eBay one night in April 2001, I came across this truck that was for sale by the Manville First Aid & Rescue.

I guess it didn't sell at that time (I found the name on an old registration in the glove box up to 2008).

So, time goes by and this truck pops up for sale again on the internet about spring of 2012. This time on Craiglist and eBay. I think some one posted here on Stovebolt that this truck was on sale at eBay.

I checked it out and placed my bid as I had a little money hanging around doing nothing.

The auction ended and it seemed that the winning bidder was just trying to run the price up on me. I didn't fall for that it. I was just going to let it go and see what happened.

Well the owner contacted me after the auction and we agreed on a price and the truck was mine, but it was still in New Jersey. I had it shipped to Utah and it arrived here on June 12, 2012. It then became the Official Truck of the 6066 GMC Guy Facebook Website.

The truck is powered by the GMC 305 Big Block V6 with a New Process 435 Trans and a H110 drive axle with a 6.17 ratio.

I will be back dating the truck some by removing the Federal TwinSonic lights from the top of the unit as they don't work right and pull a lot of power. The truck had those added some time later and without them, it still has plenty of red lights for a classic Rescue truck.

The body was built my a small company in New Jersey called Black Built Bodies. It has an enclosed area for the treating of patients and open seats on the back.

I plan on making it into a living/sleeping area for camping out at shows or while on the road.

There is also a Onan 5.0 CCK generator on board that the guy I bought the truck from didn't even know it had. I have not gotten it to start yet so there is a second project included at no extra cost. The large search / floor lights get their power from the Onan Generator, so I need to get it running to light those up.

I have a lot of pictures and separate albums in the Rescue's Photobucket some taken in very cool locations.

Thanks for your great site. I send people to it all the time for those who are looking for info on those older Chevrolet & GMC trucks.

"Jolly" Goodfellow
