Found this today in the back of a job site I am workin on.
Couldn’t get too close because of the weeds and ground hornet nest between me and truck.
Otherwise I would have gotten better picture.
I can try again tomorrow if someone here is seriously interested in it.

The mechanic there told me the motor is bad.
Gonna try to post the picture i took today.

No worries. Probably more than the motor is bad ...

Fire trucks in that condition aren't really worth restoring anyway ... It's a parts source at best. The beacon and the siren might be the most valuable part of the truck ...

Here's an AD fire truck a few miles from our place. The paint is a bit oxidized but it looks in good shape. A 5-window?

It looks like real parade material.

Oops. Thought this forum was for random sightings. Sorry for the above.

That looks like a Forest firefighting rig.
