Click on photos to view larger image
This red 1936 Ford Model 51 1-1 1/2 ton hose truck is a very straight, solid, very low miles Oregon fire engine ready to be restored or shown the way it is. Ordered from the factory as a cowl without windshield and chassis, this truck has 1,840 original miles and the speedometer works. These hose trucks got little use and this one spent most of it's time inside the fire station. It was built in October of 1935. The sheet metal is as good as it gets. The left front fender has a crack but it is an easy repair. The grill, hood, cowl and right front fender are near perfect. The older redone paint is chipped in places and there are a few small dents here and there from usage over the years. The hubcaps and hood medallions are nice and still have the blue Ford paint. The wings on the hood ornament are broken off. The cut-off running boards are straight and solid. The truck has the original wheels and unheard-of original Firestone tires. The dash and gauges are all there. The steering wheel is deteriorated. Somebody switched out the near-new pedal rubber with old ones and they need to be replaced. The wooden hose box is  non-factory shop-made. The 221 CID L-head V-8 motor is out of the truck. It has a cracked block from freezing. All the remaining motor parts including good heads are all there. A new 221 CID block is needed. The chassis, suspension and power train look like new. You won't find a better 36 Ford fire truck than this low-miles beauty. Please call (406) 318-0270 for details about this restorable classic project truck.
