s/n 101639 Autocar Fire Tanker This truck is modeled as something a fire department would use in a rural area where fire hydrants were few and far between. It's big, Autocar model DC10364-OH with 12.00-24 tires. The dual exhaust suggest someone might have modified and adjusted the fuel pump settings so maybe there's more than 335 horsepower in that Cummins diesel.
These trucks were all built using the same body, kit number 95085 priced at $12.00. The top one is on an Autocar U-90, typical of what a fellow might build after the war to start business The second one is built for my layout, it runs around the coast and pumps the herring bait out of the boat and delivers it to a bait dealer or a canning plant.
UPDATE - I've had a great response to this and it's going to be a bigger project than I expected so the reservation period is being extended until the end of March.
A run of these Manitowoc 3900 60 to 100 ton crane kits will be made by May 2008. For those of you who wish to get a crane at that time please send in your reservation with payment information. Download the pdf of the promo and order form at the bottom of the page.
