Big Red just found his forever home.
 
Hi all!
I've owned many vehicles, but only one for 13 years. 1956 F100.
I cherished that beauty and did it right. Due to circumstance beyond my control, I had to part with my companion.
Ever since, I have been waiting for its equal, to feel that joy again.

My wishes have been answered and I feel blessed.
Just bought an old fire truck. 1956 F600... Almost rust free. Get this...
9400 frickin miles on the odometer!
Blessed, as I said. Pictures to follow.

That is nice!
Welcome to FTE! When you get a chance we would love to see pictures under the hood.
So what are your plans for it?

Welcome to the board!!
Awesome truck. Yea, sometimes you get lucky with firetrucks and they haven't seen much action. Very cool, you're going to have fun with it

Y'all near vancouver? I saw one very similar to that on craigslist recently.

Rickrolls 03-15-2019 08:13 AM

I bought the truck from a fellow in Nanaimo. I believe he brought the beast over from Vancouver.
The Vancouver ad must have been a while ago. I'll post more pictures when I get time.
Was thinking about converting to a tilt deck, then realized that everyone loves a parade !
It's such a rare truck I'll keep it pretty much stock.
Going with checker plate al for the bed and tubs.. Needed a truck for dump runs etc... lol
Will likely restore the pump...get it working.
WOO HOO! Many late nights to come...

Steve Harlow 03-15-2019 02:15 PM

Well that's the one then. Neat.

Nice find. Might be amazed at how that would polish up. Enlist a scout troop.
