    I saw a firetruck for sale in Pa. This is on rt. 422 about a mile or so west of I-79.

    I have been in yards that have firetrucks. If you are looking for a certain model of truck or vintage that would help. There is a man in northern PA that deals specifically with CF's. That is if you are looking for Mack stuff.

    If you are trying to locate trucks that served in the Philly area you could use CarFax to try to track any particular model or year you are looking for. The Mack chassis numbers are pretty simple; 75A-1... or 85B1..., so you could guess model years by the relative chassis number. It would be laborious, but I believe CarFax offers a subscription so the expense should be minimal.

    There was a salvage yard on Staten Island that was full on NYC, Newark and small FD trucks, What are you looking for, older trucks or parts? Paul
