|Glendale, California purchased this Crown TeleSqurt in 1979. Serving as Wagon 26, she carried serial number F1803 and was
the last standard cab Firecoach built before production completely changed over to the new widecab design. She was fitted with
a Pierce body, 50 foot Telesqurt, 1,500gpm Waterous pump, 300 gallon water tank and powered by a Cummins NTC-350
diesel motor with an Allison Automatic transmission.
This same rig appeared on the cover of Firehouse Magazine in November of 1994. In the cover photo, she was at a major
incident at a chemical plant. Photo was snapped just as an explosion occurred. There were no injuries and no damage to the rig
with the exception of a small fire that ignited in the hose bed which was quickly extinguished as she continued pumping.
She was retired in early 1995 and sold.

|F1803 was sold to Dave Cook Used Trucks of Florien, Louisiana where it was refurbished and subsequently sold
it to Caddo Parish Fire District #3 which is located just north of Shreveport, LA. She was retired by Caddo Parish
in late 2009. She was sold at auction and acquired by Ben Elmore in February 2010. She was sold by Ben after
he lost his indoor storage in July 2010 and acquired by collector Scott Johnson. She was driven north shortly
thereafter to her new home outside of Kansas City, Kansas and ran like a champ.
