Work done to the truck since I purchased it in 2004. Repaint in 2005 with Gillespie OD color and decals, new clutch and pressure plate, radiator, head gasket, filters, belts, hoses. Pump packing replaced, transfer valve and primer serviced. Brand new winch cable

Condition of truck: Body is good always stored indoors with minimal rust. Truck starts right up and will do 50 mph down the road. Smokes a little –as most of these Hercules multifuels do. Shifts good through all 5 gears, brakes are air over hydraulic and work ok but could need a little adjustment. Pump works well and will draft from a pond no problem. Will need batteries. Manual throttle on pump panel needs tightening. There is a leak from the winch looks like a gasket and a seal are needed.

Price is $10000 with all tools and accessories. This truck is being sold as is and as an antique fire truck. Clear NJ Title. Local pick up only. I will work with your shipper and have room to accommodate drop deck tailgate but have no ramp. Truck is located outside Atlantic City NJ
