The Montgomery Fire Department, located along the northern coast of California received this TeleSqurt
through Crown Coach in
the spring of 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.  
This rig was
powered by a Caterpillar 3208 diesel motor paired with an Allison Automatic transmission.  
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.
