|The Chula Vista, CA Fire Department purchased this TeleSqurt through Crown Coach in 1972.
It was fitted with a Waterous 1,250 pump, 300 gallon water tank, and 50 foot TeleSqurt mounted to
a Pierce body on a Ford C850 cab and chassis. In this era, Crown Coach Corp. was the west
coast marketing and sales agent for Pierce Fire Apparatus. These rigs were commonly known for
having Crown badges affixed to them by employees when they arrived in the Crown plant in
Los Angeles for set up prior to delivery.
Sadly, this rig was destroyed in September of 2002 by a movie studio while filming "Terminator 3".
