    This one big enough? 1 ton 37 Dodge that was originally a fire truck in Virginia 37 Dodge Left Rear.jpg
    Sitting on a 72 Ford F-250 4X4 chassis and still has the 390 FE in it. Freaks people out when I pass them cruising along at 70 MPH.

    BTW the bed is over 9 feet long. It originally held a small pumper unit so the FD could get into closer areas to put out fires they couldn't reach in a full-sized fire truck.

    I LOVE those old REO trucks. Nice ones are too pricey for me these days,though.

    There is nothing like the sheer fun, torture of buying and modifying a 46 IHC, KB-5 firetruck, 30 K invested, drove it over 20,000 miles cross country and learned a lot of lessons about how everything on the bigger trucks is a lot more expensive than most would imagine. No regrets, but doing this once was enough.

    Well, maybe you should have considered just taking the DC-3 instead (even more expensive?).
     
  14. I love bigger trucks. An old big truck pulling a trailer with hot rods, antique tractors, or old cars is just plain cool. But then again just look at what I do for a living.

  15. Bought this one because it was super cheap...1953 Chevy model 3800 100_6877_zpsfad7b889.jpg 18 months later...the old heap looked like this...

    I did this one because I love the looks of them...sold it in 45 minutes at the one and only car show I ever went to...I called it Howard Knapp....this thing was so big...it just barely fit in my 32-foot deep garage...
