|I present this interesting sequence of photos of this Crown pumper assigned serial number F1847. The first photo shows the rig as delivered. This Crown Firecoach wide-cab pumper was purchased by the Corona Fire Department in 1981, one of 3 nearly identical Crowns purchased that year. This pumper originally served Station 2 and was later reassigned to Station 1 where it is show below after receiving some modernization. F1847 is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 engine paired with an Allison Automatic transmission and is fitted with a Waterous 1,500gpm pump and 500 gallon tank. The last photo shows this pumper after it was sold at auction and purchased by a collector. The photo again shows more modifications.
Thanks to Battalion Chief Chris Cox for sharing the history of this rig.
