|The Covina, California Fire Department purchased this Crown pumper new in 1981 where she was assigned to Engine 91.
It is fitted with a Waterous 1,500gpm pump with 500 gallon tank and powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v92TAC with a Spicer
5-speed manual transmission and carries Crown Coach serial number F1863.
This rig went to the Los Angeles County Fire Department in 1996 when Covina consolidated its fire protection services with
the County. She was retired and sold at auction in 2007 and acquired by firefighter Jim Mihalka. Jim is a longtime resident
of the City of Covina and owns the first and last Crowns purchased by the City.
