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.
