Rootie...Who is in the midget ??
The GMC 702, along with Ford's 534, IH's 549FTV and the Hall-Scott 1091 were truly the gasoline engine's last gasp in fire service applications. The Hall-Scott, often straight-piped, put out a 3-foot long flame when in pump gear.
Looks like Ted Parker in the 54
Belmont Sanchez '53 Stude...a true Bonneville icon. (First door-slammer over 200 MPH.)
A little later; 230 MPH.
That's 1958, Guys. That Stude is a five tear old car! Sanchez caught on fast...everybody else followed!
Chet Herbert used to advertise in HRM... "Any car, any grind, $35".
Dial the number, and talk to Chet himself.
Thom McAn shoe store, haven't seen one of those in a while.
This one was new to me:
Used in buses, fire trucks, pumps, etc. Since it was based on the V-6, it was a 60° V-8 and had a balance shaft. There’s one on YouTube, search for GMC 637.
I believe it was an October 1957 Hot Rod Magazine cover.
Tornado damage, Waco, TX
Harold Hungerford "flew" that Stude, and walked way !
How sad is this - At first glance I assumed that he texting while walking with his son...
Harold or Joe LaCosta?
Don't you just hate when that happens?
