This advertisement is for an International Harvester K-233 pumper fire truck. It is one of the nicest ones that I have ever seen, and is complete. There is no major rust, no dents, and everything is there. There is very slight blistering where the rear section of the front fender meets the body, but it is very minor. A bit over the front windshield as well
It was used up to last year as a fire suppression rig for a local logging company in their holding yard, and was never used in the field. Basically, since the 50"s, this truck has been in a holding yard, being driven from one side of the lot to the other.
The wheels are the original spoke style, and there is only one hubcap missing.
The doors open and close super smoothly, and the dash is uncut.
Mechanically, it was a good running machine when I brought it home 2 years ago, but will need a wee bit of tlc before reaching the public highways.It will need a new intake manifold, due to a crack. I have a brand new N.O.S Master cyl for it, as well as some new wires for the ignition as well. Distributor cap, rotor and points/condenser are new, as is the coil.The seats are factory, and will need upholstery. There is one original hose reel as well. The water tank in the back is leak free and holds a few hundred gallons. All of the pumping mechanics work fine, and was a certified Fire Suppression Vehicle until the end of 2010.
The engine is a Blue Diamond 240 CID gas burning 6 cylinder.
I can ship this worldwide, but please do any investigation of the details before committing to the purchase of this rare machine. It has a clear Washington Title and will also come with a bill of sale.
