This Crown tractor drawn aerial was built for the Orange County Fire Department in 1971.  She was given Crown Coach serial number  F1659 and assigned to Station 4 in Irvine where she ran as Truck 4. She is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 paired with an Allison Automatic transmission and equipped with a Maxim 100 foot aerial ladder.
F1659 was sold by Orange County to the City of San Mateo located near the San Francisco Bay Area.  San Mateo used this rig for several years as a reserve truck before it failed its aerial certification and was sold to a painting contractor.
