Came across this 1930s Model A Ford Engine in Goldfield Nevada.
That would take a lot of time and money to restore, but it sure is a neat little rig.

OK not on the road somewhere in the USA but in Rotterdam; The Netherlands (Europe)
Found in a dealers yard 4 former US ones.
- Chevrolet from the Tuppers Plains Fire & Rescue (Ohio) Rescue 85; Unit 20 I wrote with them as they have a Facebook page and it seems they run it for 5 years and replaced it in 2017. So I assume they got it in 2012. was told that it was a former Little Hocking one.
- Chevrolet from Woodson; Throckmorton County Texas unit 703 no other details as I haven't got a reply yet from their Facebook page
- Chevrolet cab only from WAB TWP (Township I guess but no idea what WAB is) RFD Unit 3 522 (Rural FD?)
- Chevrolet? HFPD (Fire Protection District?) Rescue Unit. Other text I found on the truck is Dept. of Conservation Forestry & US Forest Service Illinois
So if anyone can shine a light on these trucks I would appreciate it very much

The red apple painted on the side of the cab has a bite out of it, and says "Our Piece of the Apple" , it was placed there in the 80s by Juniata Gap.

Nice find, this rig could stand some TLC.

Thank you for posting the interesting history of this rig. I came across this by accident, I was on my way to a nearby scrap yard to see if I could catch Turtle Creek's ladder before it met its demise.
