Red Fords

Recommended Posts

The Sugar Hill, NH Fire Department has a twin to Valley Fire Equipment's Ford. One of Sugar Hill's first trucks when the department was organized in 1948, theirs is

also a 1939 model pickup. It was restored by department members a few years ago. Valley Fire Equipment in Bradford, NH also has an early "B" model Mack on display

in front of their building. I don't get up that way very often but someday I would like to get a picture of it.

Nice-any clue what the body was for?

It is set up as a camper. I need to lower it a couple of inches so it fits inside the shop

Here is a picture of it when it was in service.

In 2011, the Plymouth, MA Fire Department put a tanker into service with this same Ford "F" chassis and a Bulldog Fire Apparatus body. It's a 1988, 500/2100, red cab with a black body.

I didn't know that it is a former Army vehicle. I don't have a picture of it but there is one on the Plymouth, MA apparatus page on "firenews.org".

I'm a transplanted Long Islander and drive for Pitt Ohio out of Eighty Four, PA. Got a nice view of the Mon from up here on the hill.

   Two more red fords:

   1. An early '80s F-700 with two tanks on board, not sure what it was used for.

   2. A new style "Louisville" dump truck for sale.
