It is with deep regret that I am selling some of my antique fire engines. I have come to realize I cannot restore all the vehicles I own. It is for that reason alone I am selling a 1971 Kalamazoo Fire Truck. I am asking $2500. It is located in the Tampa Bay area.
It has a great back story to it. It was only used in the GM V-8 plant in Flint Michigan and purchased new by them. I have all of the original documentation that went with it. It does come with some signage that was used during operation. There is no equipment that came with it as they used it internally when I bought it from them.
This was used as a squad truck for spills and small fires to be contained until the fire brigade arrived.
This Kalamazoo fire truck has a 2 cylinder Wisconsin engine. It has a cast iron block and has had little use. It ran 1 year ago but not had the time to start it recently. NO ISSUES !!! No smoke, no knocking no nothing.
It has hard rubber tires on it that are in great shape. The body is in good shape but does need a paint job. Being small this is not a large investment.
I will be happy to answer any and all questions.
I cannot pay for transportation. However, I will gladly help arrange it and be there to see it is properly taken care of on its way to a new home. I have moved many vehicles and have a few suggestions when it gets to that point.
This is a great vehicle that can be stored in the corner of a garage with a small footprint. I guarantee there will not be another one at a local muster and rarely ever at a SPAAMFAA convention. It can be trailered with ease. This always got a lot of eyeballs when I took it to musters.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Sorry to see this little girl go….
