1975 Ford C900 COE Fire Truck
This was formerly a fire truck used by a volunteer fire department. It belonged to the same fire company when purchased newin 1975 until it was decommissioned in 2012, the mileage is correct and is well documented as these vehicles usually are. The truck was purchased without the fire apparatus with the intention of doing exactly what has been done to it, we use it for car shows, parades, and just something to drive that not really anyone else has. It is a fun vehicle to drive, it does have air brakes and does ride rather rough with a top speed of about 65 MPH. The 534 cubic inch engine runs well and starts immediately every time. The 5" exhaust stacks have 3" glass packs installed inside so it has a low rumble that gets a thumbs up every time someone hears you shift. The aluminum tread bright on the back and the stainless on the rear fenders and light assemblies have never seen rain or weather and areflawless. The chrome and stainless on the front is impressive as well. The interior is good, headliner has been reupholsteredwith sound deadening material added, the seat is original and in great shape - no rips or tears, the dash does have some holes from the radios and other equipment the was once mounted in it. The cab and chassis are clean and rust free entirely, very straight and solid. The tires are 3-4 years old and have 98% of their tread, brakes are at 90% as well, the power steering makes turning effortless, and all lights are functional with exception of the spotlights on either side. New battery six months ago. The truck weighs 10,600 lbs. The bang board behind the cab has provisions for a 10,000 lb electric winch, I have thought about having ramps built so that some of our other classics can be hauled to shows. Don't ask about the fuel mileage, if it is a concern then you probably are not the right person for this truck. All of the glass is in excellent condition, this vehicle is stored inside as it was for most of it's life I believe. I can be reached at 303-594-0670 with any questions. Happy Bidding!
