03/17/10 116 W, 2 I - + 7 - 3 1949 Chevy Crash Truck (?) For Sale

Here's a nifty find on Craigslist, a 1949 Chevy fire truck for sale in Angier. Same looks like an ex-military crash truck, and quite a bit like Raleigh-Durham International Airport's first crash truck, which was a 1946 International/Bean US Army Class 125 crash truck.


Here's a later photo of the RDU rig, after it was repainted white and apparently requiring some manual assistance, and which you can click to slightly enlarge. Read about the Class 125 apparatus at the nifty Fire Trucks at War web site. As for the Angier truck, there's little else in the posting. We'll mail the seller and see what else we can learn.
