|Culver City reserve Engine 4 originally served as Engine 1. Built in 1981 and carrying serial
number F1840, she is fitted with a Waterous 1,500gpm pump with a 500 gallon tank. She is
powered with a Cummins NTCC-350 diesel motor paired with an Allison Automatic transmission.
F1840 was retired by Culver City in mid-2008 and sent to the General Auction Company in
Buena Park, CA where she was quickly sold. She sold for the minimum bid of $2,000 to Barstow
Truck Parts with the intention of being scrapped for the motor and transmission. Cooler heads
prevailed and Barstow Truck Parts offered this rig along with it's sister for sale to the collector
types all of which missed the initial auction. She was sold again, this time for $5,000 to a collector.
