|First off, I am looking for a photo of this Snorkel when it was in service for Orange County. She carries serial number F1721
and was built for the Orange County Fire Department in 1974, shop number 5187. She first served as Truck 9 in Mission Viejo
and later as Truck 44 in Seal Beach. She was originally built powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 with an Allison Automatic
transmission and an 85 foot Snorkel. She was retired in 1993 and sold at auction and was purchased by a tree trimming
company. At some point, she was repowered with a Detroit Diesel 8v92 and received other modifications. The Snorkel basket
has been cut down and the curved windshields have been replaced with flat glass.
