02/06/11 89 W, 1 I - + 6 - 2 1969 Ford C/Ward LaFrance Command Tower

Last week we were discussing Ward LaFrance command towers. A couple served in North Carolina, including this 1969 Ford C/Ward LaFrance 1000/500/22-foot that Andrew Messer photographed. This picture is available in this collection of Western North Carolina apparatus pictures. (And that is one sweet collection of pictures, let me tell you!) The truck served Boone FD, then Deep Gap FD also in Watagua County, then Colletsville FD in Caldwell County for a brief period. Click to see larger version:

Say what you want…the Ford C series made a good looking fire truck.
