In addtion, Gettysburg PA had a rescue. In the ad above, it the squad on the left hand side in the middle. In 1968, the body was remounted on a new Ford chassis and served another 18 years.
Mid 1950s photo shows Gettysburg's 1951 Mack L-85 750/500 and the 1953 Ford F-8/Sharpsville rescue on the right.
One interesting fact about this rescue is that GFD received $3,200.00 from Civil Defense towards the approx. $11,300.00 cost of the truck and special equipment.
