Avalon, located on Catalina Island, lays 26 miles off the coast of southern California.  This wide cab Firecoach
was purchased by the city in 1979.  She carries serial number F1808 and is fitted with a Waterous 1,500gpm
pump, 500 gallon tank and is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 with an Allison Automatic transmission.
She is dedicated by the Avalon Fire Department to John Wayne.
F1808 was retired and sold in 2006 to a company in southern California to test building standpipes.  She was
sold again in late 2008 to a collector in the San Diego area.
