This from Austin Lawler:

 I thought that this might be something of interest for the blog. A friend of mine posted it on Facebook.The truck itself is a 1979 F250. It does not say which department it was bought from, but being the seller is in Maple Park it probably is from one of the smaller departments in the area. Here is the Craigslist ad:

Have a great weekend,

1979 F250 Ford Fire Truck F-250 – $7500 (Maple park)

It’s very clean the fire Dept did replace the cab and front clip with a 1978 hence the round headlights there’s no bondo original cab corners and rockers
It has a 351 and a four speed drives amazing
