dneville Posted August 17, 2005 Share Posted August 17, 2005 Hello all... since retiring from a paid position in the fire service, I find myself with an opportunity to search out the 1st fire engine my former fire district purchased. We believe it to be a '48 or '49, definitely a Mack, probably a model 75, perhaps even a model 45. Open cab, 750 GPM, etc.We believe it was purchased new by the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District in Southern California, and was sold to a private individual around 1972, perhaps then resold to a ranch in Orange County (CA). Unfortunately, all paperwork is gone and we don't even know the VIN #.In researching with Mack, they don't show that they have ever sold a unit to Rancho Santa Fe, so that was a disturbing fact.Anyhoo, if anyone has a lead or can guide me towards an information source, it would be greatly appreciated. I will include a picture or two on a future post.Thanks! DEN Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
