Unusual, highly appealing and bestowed with several prestigious honors which include the Mayors Cup and the Merchants Award from the 2010 Monterey Peninsula, this 1951 Crosley Hook and Ladder retains its original four cylinder engine, carries a fresh restoration and has the ability to haul 20 of your closest friends on a scenic joy ride! One of only four goose neck fire trucks produced by Overland Amusements in Lexington, Massachusetts, this pint-sized public servant was introduced right after World War II as a super cool carnival ride. Its build combines a Crosley pickup truck with a custom built fifth wheel hook and ladder trailer which features full bench seats and clever safety restraints that are fashioned out of fire fighters ladders. Recently the truck underwent an extensive restoration which began with a complete nut and bolt tear down and ended with a smooth coat of traditional fire engine red paint. Lift this Hook and Ladders long, rolled hood and youll find an original 44 cubic inch, water cooled CIBA 4-cylinder which wears a correct red-detailed Crosley logo and a correct 208800 casting number. Behind that engine, a Crosley T-92 manual transmission rows through all three of its gears just as well now as when it left the showroom floor. And behind that transmission, a 10 bolt Crosley rear end rides right below a sturdy ball mount hitch for the long and light trailer. Tying the truck, trailer and pavement together is six freshly painted 12 inch steel wheels which spin 4.80-12 Deestone tires around vintage, red-detailed Crosley hub caps. Inside this old school fire engine, youll find a fully restored interior that, given the trucks original purpose, is likely much nicer than ever before. Dont miss your opportunity to own this one-of-a-kind show stopper!
