The Watsonville Fire Department purchased two pieces of apparatus from Crown Coach in 1967.  A pumper and an aerial ladder
truck shown here.  This ladder truck carries serial number F1475 and is powered with a Cummins NTC-350 diesel motor with a
Spicer 5-speed manual transmission.  She is equipped with a mid-mount Maxim 100 foot aerial ladder and was the first of only four
rigs built in this configuration by Crown.
F1475 had her ladder removed towards the end of her service for Watsonville and was ultimately sold to a collector in the late 90s.
