Marmon-Herrington F-5

Anyone interested in an old F-5 ('48-'50) with the M-H 4x4 conversion? Check out my gallery for a few photos of it and an F-6. They've been sitting in the woods for well over thirty years, but the M-H running gear is intact on the F-5, no engine, though.

I would be interested in saving the M-H 4x4 conversion. Are the bodies viable or are they totally rusted out, like you can punch through the roof? From the front bumper to the rear of the rear wheel axle is it more then 16 feet?

Rebo,

The OVERALL length is just over seventeen feet, so I would guess front bumper to rear axle to be about twelve feet.

Rebo,

I forgot to say that the bodies are both in very sad shape. Although complete, I notiticed the F-5 M-H has a rust-created sunroof.

Hey Johnny, have not gotten down to Whitton to see ya'll in a while. How about selling one of your fire trucks. Never knew you had all those toys. Holding out on me?? Trade a 1988 f3504x4???
Would like to see the M-H if it is not too far away.
Will try to call this week. Steve

The F-5/M-H is now on ebay, number 4550567812, so let's try to keep it from going to the scrapyard, folks!

Wouldn't it be cool to put that 4x4 frame under a short bus and give it a heck of a lift.

FTE Brothers and Sisters,

I talked with the owner of the M-H F-5 and the F-6 and he plans to scrap them soon. I already have too many projects, so won't one of you PLEASE save these trucks?
