The AC started life as a fire truck/ ladder truck.  It was later used as a bar in Boston.  There was a great article about it in Double Clutch.  It got a different chassis and a dump bed.  The nickel plated grab handles are fire truck equipment. Mike.

Yes, it was purchased brand new to serve as a fire truck for Keene, NH then as a backup fire truck in Vermont.  After many years, it than was used as bar decoration at the Firehouse Restaurant (or a similar type name) in Worcester, MA before Rich Kurzontkowski bought the remains at auction.

It had been cut apart at the back of the cab.  Rich had to find or build everything to make it a complete truck again.  He has dump trucks so it was done up that way.

Great looking classic pair!

And a real pleasure to see how that gentleman cares about his trucks. At least about restored ones.

Have never seen any in person but the pics always bring me to take my hat off.
