    Love seeing some of the old Aussie photos. The first one is probably in Western Australia which is where the Swan Brewery was(see Swan pilsener sign)

    All those emblems on those hood sides are V-6's 305" gas hogs as I remember. V-8's were pretty rare for those in my area.

    Like Jimmy Six said, these were big old V-6s; they started at 305 cubic inches for the pickups, and for commercial truck they got much bigger. They had a boxcar load of low end torque, but were heavy and thirsty.

    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.
