My all time favorite trio-Mack CF, ALF Century and Ford C. Seems as if every department had at least one of the three at some point in their history. They get my votes for the most significant U.S. fire trucks ever made and are the Golden Era in my opinion. I doubt we'll ever have such long running designs again, much less three at the same time! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for posting the Americans!

The 1956 Ford carried American job #1961, beautiful restoration.

The 1959 Ford I have listed but no number for.

The Reese IHC brush truck I show as a 1963 model with job #2573.


Bob.
