1978 Ford L-8000 Water Tanker (Sold)

1978 Ford L-8000 Tanker


This beautiful 3,500 gallon tender was sold to the Jackpot Fire Department in Nevada. This truck features a recently rebuilt motor, rear dump and discharges all around. We would like to thank Chief Brian Hugill for working with us on the purchase. We at Firetrucks Unlimited absolutely appreciate all the support the local Nevada fire departments give to us. She should give you years and years of reliable service. Now we have to find another one for all the other departments that wanted it too!
