    I thought I’d start a new thread here about the fire/brush trucks. 8EAFC3AA-E127-4403-89E1-CC2694ECB117.jpeg 95F269B8-703E-4EC0-8CE8-AE5653EFAE50.jpeg 46C88FD2-3C32-4CE7-A35C-430F68FB29C8.jpeg 1527AFEA-CD1C-47D5-BD30-4005AE3430CB.jpeg C5B73D9F-5711-4FA3-9DC6-D87F313C0840.jpeg

    Love the square firetrucks. I was really bummed that my district got rid of their squarebody brush for a skeeter. Even more bummed when I found out the Fire Chief favors fords.. :disgust:

    That one is a 74 with a little less than 11,000 miles. I was told it’s getting sold soon and there’s a long line of people wanting it.

    Oh I bet! "Historic" fire stuff has a huge demand. Hopefully the new owner keeps it as is. Here's our old engine. Not a chevy but still neat and fully restored. Gets used in alot of parades. Still functional too.

    Found these on my local Craigslist for sale. Yellow is an '89. Red is a '87.

    Here's another picture. Probably for cliff rescues.

    We have a square body military k20 it has the box on the back. The mechanics or whatever, I forget the M##s they call it. I could Google it. But it had a PTO generator inside of it when it was military. It's just a utility truck now.

    This is our brush truck. Those tires useing an online calculator measure to be 41"
    And it too is a Skeeter and a Ford if you can't tell. IMG_20191120_185144941.jpg IMG_20191120_185106621.jpg

    I bought this from the volunteer fire dept in Saluda SC. Its an 87 V20 Custom Deluxe with NO options at all. No dome light, no radio, no ac, no dimmer on the rear view. I've never loved a truck so much as this one. 350 with 465 Muncie. It has a crate engine with 6000 miles on it. Truck only logged 6000 miles in the last 20 years of service. Was stored indoors thankfully.

    I think I did ok. I paid $4200 with fees and shipping. Was an auction find. I just missed out on one in the panhandle that went cheap. If I could afford to I'd hoard these.

    Skeeters sure are sweet trucks. Can even get them in a 6x6 configuration. This is ours. The old trucks are great, but functionality and added features you can't beat these things. But they do come with a price.
