|The Sunnyvale, California Fire Department purchased this Crown Firecoach new in April of 1974 where she
first served as Engine 4. Carrying serial number F1710, she is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 paired with
an Allison Automatic transmission. She is equipped with a Waterous 1,500gpm pump and 400 gallon water
tank. Upon retirement in 2005, she was sent to Nationwide Auctions in Benicia, CA and sold.

|F1710 was picked up by the Idaho City, Idaho Fire Department. She is pictured below in Nyssa, ID
prior to delivery to Idaho City. She was in service in Idaho City through the end of 2013 when the
pump transfer case developed a failure sidelining the rig. F1710 was offered for sale on Craigslist and
was picked up by collector Alex Mitchell. After being hauled to the Portland area, the transfer case
was repaired and Alex continues making several other minor repairs.
