01/23/14 59 W, 1 I - + 3 - 3 Vintage Ford/Howe Pumper with Big Honkin' Hose Reel

Found for sale on eBay, color photo of a 1965 Ford F/Howe pumper with super-sized hose reel for five-inch supply line. There's 1,000 feet on that puppy. The engine was equipped with a 500 GPM pump. Served as Hose 5 at Lower Currituck County Fire Department in Grandy, NC. Click to enlarge:

This truck is sitting beside the highway just north of Grandy in Coinjock. Paint is faded quite a bit compared to the photo. The VFD I used to be on had a similar truck with 2,000’ of 5” on a reel. Those trucks help immensely in non hydrant areas with plenty of options for overboard draft.
