10/08/11 53 W, 1 I - + 5 - 4 Old Orange County Rescue Unit

Saw this truck today in Creedmoor, sitting behind the fire station. Chassis is International, wonder who built the body? Formerly served Orange County Rescue Squad, and now owned by CFD. And that's the town's fire siren on the water town base, in the background. Click to enlarge:

I’m sure someone will know for sure but it looks a bit like a Hackney body

That was my thought, but the body striping looks like E-One.

Don’t know the age of it or whether it’s been refitted, but Hackney didn’t get into the game until the early-to mid-90s. And from seeing all the product out there that Hackney has (I used to live in Washington, where Hackney is), there’s a lot that tells me that it’s not, unless it’s an OLD refitted beverage truck. Other manufacturers of drink trucks are also in the game, and they all seem to use somewhat similar construction methods.

I have it as OC Squad 268, a 1983 International. Didn’t have the body info though.

The International Squad Truck was bought buy Orange Rural Fire Department in Orange County in the mid 90’s. The truck was repainted red and used as an air and light unit until the early 2000’s when it was sold to Orange County Rescue. Orange County Rescue sold it and some Hurst equipment to Creedmoor Fire.
Prior to becoming property of Orange Rural, it was a bottled water transport truck in Boston, Ma.
The cab was replaced due to rust. The body is a Hackney.
