Jeff Ciccone's Fire Truck

     Jeff''s KG2BZ meticulous restoration of a 530C fire truck.
  A very handy vehicle to have around for house fires and civil unrest.

   And perfect for that trip to the 7-11 convenience store to pick up milk and bread.



The truck is equipped with a Motorola Syntor X VHF for civilian fire comm and VRC-64 for military fm comm.         All bases are covered.

Look closely you can just make out the US Army Stencil.
   Jeff's comments: The 530 series started in 1952, first there was an 530A using a front mount pump on a 6x6 - it was used by AF and Army. The 530B appeared in 1954 and was utilized by both services. The army adopted the 530C in 1972 , adding a foam nozzle and a slightly larger pump but The AF never used the 530C. I have the C model which was used by the US Army. The truck came from Newport Indiana Ammunition Depot.
