Looks almost like a bus front end.

Almost looks like they took a late 50's Diamond T 921 "China Closet" cabover grille and flattened it out..

didn't some of the NYFD Macks use that blank lookin grille panel to? how about the quad headlights and flush signals on that R model? someone did some nice fiberglass work instead of cutting the square headli'tes into the  original panels like I have seen, not that I like either one. look like they came from an 80's Buick or the Chevy Chase's 'Family truckster'

That front looks sort of Ford-ish.  Andy

That's what I thought a ''Two Story Falcon''

                               The early "CF" models, 1967-68, had that painted grill with the horizontal chrome strips. The full chrome front was on later "CF" models.

The AC pumper is mine.  It is spending the year in the Harrisburg Fire Museum.  Hopefully I’ll have a new built by the time I bring it home.  Mike.

It was awesome seeing that old Bulldog out and driving around, but boy could you smell it, even after it was shut off and just sitting for a while. A beautiful rig though, absolutely loved seeing it, put some of even the newer ones to shame on it’s driving capabilities...
