Yea, it sure does. I couldn't get the story straight but I'm guessing the Chassis came from an older Ford C/ALF pumper and at some point the mounted the oil tanker body on the chassis and scrapped the original pumper body.

Formerly Saginaw, TX FD
I recently photographed this truck again and I was able to find out some more information about the truck. A private bidder bought the truck from Saginaw FD and after several attempts was not able to start the truck even with jumper cables after he hauled it home. Frustrated, he eventually gave the truck to Valley Mills VFD. The VMVFD turned on the master battery switch and the truck started.

Published May 4, 1960 in the Asheville Citizen-Times.  These were the final rigs to have the city seal painted on each side (above the front wheel-well).  The city seal on subsequent rigs was a decal.  Photos of Asheville's other cab-over Fords posted on this board include their only Emergency One engine.  Tanker 7 is a former street washer, transferred from the water dept.  Another C-series carried a '41 ALF 65' aerial after the original 600 Series chassis was sent to the crusher.  Their final American LaFrance, a 1984 cab-over Ford, was bought when E4 was reactivated.

I've heard before that McCoole used to have green engines, but I've never seen pictures, so thank you for posting them.  And Potomac's Ford C rescue, Squad 22, is still in service, they also owned a Ford C/Grumman canopy cab engine that they replaced, I'm assuming due to the time frame, with Engine/Tanker 22.  Their neighbour across the river, Piedmont, WV, runs an identical Ford C/Grumman, Engine 24-13.  Unfortunately I don't have pictures of either.

however, here is Charleston Fire Department, Charleston, WV, Engine 472, a Ford C/E-One canopy cab topmount.

See details of a 1967 FORD C600 Thibault/Morysville under the "Odd and unusual rigs" category  (http://www.youngstownfire.com/forums/index.php/topic,9194.0.html).

This fine piece of apparatus (lighting plant and utility unit) was custom-built by Thibault, on a FORD C600 chassis, for the Chews Landing,NJ FD. It was later operated by both the West Collingswood Heigts,NJ FD and (subsequently by) the Burlington,NJ FD (Hose Co#5- “Neptune”), where it ended active life in late 2006. At some undisclosed time after original delivery Morysville  (now out of business) provided some revamping of body.

It was eventually shipped to Europe for preservation as a privately owned historical vehicle. Full re-equipment with (mostly) vintage gear took place in Portugal from 2007 to 2011 and the rig has now a functional profile compatible with a multi-purpose/special operations truck of the former Portuguese fire appliance category APR. With a Portuguese genuine license plate dating from 1967, the rig still sports the original Burlington livery.

Truck was assigned the call sign APR343 in praise of all fallen Firefighters /Rescuers/Salvagemen, particularly of all those killed in the line of action during the 9/11 infamous event.

For any further details see the article "One of a kind" in the Visiting Fireman publication (2008 edition).

Pic 1) The first of two identical pumpers on the day the first arrived in Happy Valley, taken March of 1965. Standing in front of the pumper is my father, and that little kid hanging onto his leg is me, just four years old.

Pic 3) Before it left Oregon and headed to Soldotna, Alaska, taken September of 1981.

Pic 3) And after I restored it back to original condition, taken May of 2011.

Nice truck!  I've heard a lot about it here and there, who built the body on it though?  That's one thing I've never heard.
Title: Re: Ford C Fire Apparatus
Post by: mikefire32 on October 05, 2011, 01:11:34 PM
The truck was built by Wesco, which was a division of Industrial Steel Tank and Body Works, located in Berkeley, CA. My father was a mechanical engineer by trade and a volunteer fire chief by default, and on the side did some work for Doug Roney, who built Roney Fire trucks. Between the time the project was started and the district was ready to purchase, the Roney business had been sold twice, first to the Convoy Company in Portland who built the same truck and put the name Westland on it, and then to Industrial Steel Tank and Body Works. These trucks were so complex that they were destined to be built by Wesco, or whoever Doug Roney was with at the time, as he and my dad had been working on the project for several years. The trucks were unlike anything else that had been built at the time, so companies like Seagrave, Pirsch, Ward LaFrance and others refused to bid it as spec'd and offered their standard product. I will post more information as to the details later, most likely starting a post for Wesco in the apparatus builder's section. If you have not seen it, go the the post on wrecked fire apparatus and you will see my submission regarding the collision between the two pumpers. Below is a picture that was run in the Oregon Journal newspaper in May of 1965 when the first engine went in service. My father Bill Beutler is standing at the side of the truck and Captain Milt Durham is in the cab.

Darley LDM 1500 pump in a C cab Ford with a 3208 cat turbo rated at 250 hp.  Darley sold a lot of LDM's for that purpose.  E-one started out with Darley pumps before Hale.

      A brand new Ford "C"/E-One at Greenwood Motors in Massachusetts. Greenwood is the E-One dealer in New England and also builds its own trucks
      under the Maxim name. Oh, by the way, the photo was taken in the mid 1980s.
