    I can see her now, some nice red paint, gold leaf lettering and Fire Dept. Name on hood and door. Some chrome work on bumper and grill, "how sweet it is"

        Lose the stuff behind the cab and make a nice ramp for hauling cars or add a vintage wrecker bed.May as well make it useful.
        I know where I can get a nice rollback bed with all the hydraulics and controls but that wouldn't look right.

          While in posession of fire departments they are usually very well taken care of with low miles. After that, who knows? That light/siren combo by itself is worth several hundred...love the sound of the old sirens as they slowly grind up to speed.

            Brent as I look it over I figured you might be interested in it to help protect the farm.

              Actually the white may be authentic. Growing up in mid-Missouri in the 50's, our small town of 4,000 people had 2 firetrucks(a 50's vintage Stude and a '54 Ford). Both were manned by volunteers. The one for in town use was the traditional red...but the one for use in the rural area near town was a white truck. the trucks were housed near the downtown area, so when the siren went off everyone would scramble to see if it was a red truck or a white one that rolled out of the storage building.
