|The City of Azusa purchased this Firecoach pumper in 1969 where she first served as Engine 1. She carried
Crown Coach serial number F1608 and was powered by a NTC-350 Cummins diesel motor paired with a
5-speed manual transmission. She was fitted with a Waterous 1,500gpm pump and 500 gallon water tank.
Upon Azusa's consolidation with the Los Angeles County FD, F1608 was sidelined early on due to water in
the motor oil. It languished for a few years before it was decided not to repair the motor and the rig was
sold at auction. It was purchased by a collector and used as a parts rig.
