ALF 100′ Aerial Hook and Ladder 9 of Chicago Fire Department
Chicago Fire Department 1960 Mack B95 Fire Engine – Engine 87. This Mack B95 was featured in a Mack magazine ad. The rig actually served the Skokie FD, ordered under specifications from Chief Warren Redick, where it retired as Reserve Engine 5. It was restored as a replica of CFD Engine 87 by a group of Chicagoland firefighters who called themselves the Engine 87 Club. After leaving the hands of the club, a former fire chief took over its restoration, installing a new exhaust and completely upgrading its electrical system. It had its starter rebuilt and choke cable replaced and she now starts up and runs like a champ. The two front tires are good cosmetically but are showing signs of need for replacement. There is a 6″ seam separation on the edge of the driver’s seat. It needs a new headliner but looks OK without one. There’s about a 6″ section of paint chipped away from one of the automatic radiator louvers. Other than that, she and her engine and undercarriage are in great shape. I don’t know the tank size or rating the pump has. A pump mechanic who inspected it says it will pump but I have not pumped with it. This truck runs on gas, has turn signals, a hydraulic braking system with a massive booster, and a great power steering system. The emergency warning equipment including the Mars DX-40, 888 and Commander siren all work well. This rig has a rich history and deserves to be seen once again in parades and at fire musters. Temporary or permanent storage is available to the buyer.
thanks Dennis and Dave
