Mini Attack Pumper
Bed is basically ready for removal - Was going to remove and install a flatbed but have since changed plans. Bed has the Tank, Pump, & Power Inverter. The bed is aluminum and is in good condition - only damage is the dent in the back near the receiver. There are no hoses for the pump but I believe everything else is there if someone wanted to hook the wiring back up and keep it as a fire truck.
Bed Wiring has been unhooked ( was unhooked at connections or cut very close to connections so if buyer wants to re-connect it will not be complicated just take some time), PTO Driveshaft needs removed and there are a few welds that need cut then the bed is ready to remove.
454 V8 - - Runs Good but does have noise to it like the Cam is going flat ( common on BBC). I planned to Cummins Swap.
TH400 Automatic Transmission & 203 Transfer Case
Tires have a lot of life
In the last few months the truck has had both differentials serviced, Hydra boost hoses replaced, Valves Set + New Valve Cover Gaskets, Engine Oil Change, New Air Filter, New Fuel Filter, & New Heater Core + Heater Hoses.
This truck drove home over 225 miles home when purchased early this year.
Truck is not perfect. It has some scuffs & dents. Has holes in the roof from emergency equipment.
Drivers floorboard is the worst rust on the truck - It will need a patch panel as it already a hole (most likely from cab lights leaking over the years). Passenger Fender has bubbles down low - see pictures.
Dent in the hood and a dent/scuff in the drivers fender. Needs New Floor Covering as the passenger side was damaged and we removed when installing the heater core.
We have not tested the winch and we did not test the pump or inverter before starting to remove the bed. The winch aluminum diamond tread plate cover is included but not installed for pictures.
I recommend trailering since the wiring for the bed is unhooked ( including the alternator - could be wired up to make trip if necessary I would assume without much trouble) and 454's are thirsty.
Please ask any and all questions.
