|The City of Salem, OR purchased this Crown Firecoach ladder truck in 1974 where it served as Truck 4.
Assigned Crown Coach serial number F1701, she is powered by a Detroit Diesel 8v71 with an Allison Automatic
transmission and is fitted with a Maxim 100 foot aerial ladder. As delivered, F1701 was painted yellow in color
and was repainted red and received some modernization in the early 1990s.
She was formally retired in early 2005 and sold by the State on eBay in July of the same year. Purchased by
collector Paul Krot, the rig cleaned up nicely and has been backdated to a more suitable appearance.
