No takers, re-trying: offer (this time out) includes LADDERS *and* HARD SUCTION HOSE pictured.
Built at the Oakdale Van Pelt factory in 1984 for the Stockton (CA) Fire, as the tale held, it ran as Engine 17 (Van Pelt #830664), where she served about 1984 until about 2007. She landed in private hands - twice - before coming our way in August 2014. As our use and needs have changed, this apparatus is being released from our little family of "toys."

Paint chipped below the emblem on the engineer (driver) side doorMissing the fuel cap and have had zero luck finding a replacement in two+ years now - and still haven"t found a replacement that threaded on and stayed put... 5/25: have a lead on a cap, still working on getting it in-hand and potentially put back in place
