1956 Ford\ HOWE chemical fire truck. This was Ford Motor Companies in plant fire rig serving the Sandusky Ohio facility. Powered by a gas V8 with a 5 speed manual transmission and a two speed rear end. No wipers, manual brakes and manual steering. This little, and I mean little, rig runs surprisingly well for a 57 year old. Has seating for 2 adults in the cab and 6 in the hose bed. Dimensions are as follows: 20 ' long, 7 ' wide and 6'8" high. Like I said, SMALL. Capable of fitting in a standard garage. Still needs exhaust, horn button, the paint is weak (but shiny). All lighting, factory and emergency, works. Even the turn signal indicators light when in use, I haven't put many miles on this one, but everything feels good. Brakes, clutch, steering etc etc. This is a one of a kind rig that doesn't come along too often. This is your opportunity to have a truly rare piece. Please feel free to ask all the questions you can to be comfortable with your purchase. Thanks for the interest and good luck.
