|The Berkely Fire Department purchased this Crown Tractor-Drawn Aerial new in 1968. It operated as Truck 3
and later as Truck 1 carrying Crown serial number F1568. It featured a Maxim 100' Aerial Ladder and was
powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 motor paired with an Allison Automatic transmission.
Cloaked in secrecy, F1568 was retired in February of 2003 and sold to the San Ramon Valley Fire Department for
training purposes prior to the department purchasing 3 new tractor-drawn aerials. It was sold at auction in
February 2009 and purchased by a collector.
