Beautiful truck. How long has it been sitting out? Is the gold leaf paint or tape? How does the aerial work? Do you have the serial number? I assume it is a 237. Is that the case? I don't have any room to put it inside. Mike

Hi Mike: Don kept them out for the summer and stored inside for the winter. Think the gold leaf is on vinyl, some is regular leaf. Not sure, think the replacement motor was a 285 or 300. Serial number is CF685FAP1199. Aerial worked when it was sold, don't think much has changed. You need to build a steel building, about 50 x 75 should do but I don't know with the size of your fleet.

I live right next to Baldwin the original owner. Baldwin for a time ran 2 Mack Tower Ladders this one and a 95 foot they still have . The 95 footer is I believe a 1991 one of the last and has an enclosed cab which you don't see on many aerials copes . There had to be 25 of them in service on the south shore of LI in the 80s. My dept sold our 1986 Mack FDNY spec tower ladder to Montgomery NY 3 years ago for I believe $50,000.00 so what there asking for this is cheap

My Department (Lynnfield) has had a long friendship with Truck 2 of Baldwin since we bought their 1956 American laFrance aerial which was our first aerial. They are a first-class Department and have always had outstanding equipment. They still have their Ahrens-Fox HT 1200 gpm pumper in service, a beautiful rig! It is my understanding that they are in the preliminary stages of replacing Truck 2 (The Mack 95') which will be a great truck for some lucky department. Their Truck 1 was one of the first aerialscopes on the Island and saw a lot of fire duty during the busy days of the 1970's.

Paul Baldwin FD is a class operation . I have worked along side them many times when we called them to relocate to us when the beach was burning. I do have a picture of the last Mack tower ladders in service taken about 6 years ago when we still had ours. Hard to believe 207 is the last one standing when there were so many
