Ford F500 brandbil V8 — 1957

Wonderful old fire truck that stood at Grums fire station until 1995. It’s only driven 9700 km from new and in a good condition, but needs start-up service and cleaning.

"The truck was stored in a cold garage and the wooden details have swollen and it’s very dusty. Technically it’s in good condition and should be drivable with a startup service and review. It needs a cleaning and storage in the hot garage for some time for wooden frames to dry slightly, so all doors should open and close properly."

Description

This lovely and nice fire truck was owned by Grums fire service until 1995, when it was bought by one of the men behind Arvika vehicle museum. Wonderfully untouched in its original condition, and only driven 9660 km from new. Fire trucks are on standby in the fire stations' garages and run only shorter distances during emergency in the immediate area. Therefore, and taking into account the car's good condition (especially internally), we believe that the meter reading can be correct. In addition, they were meticulously serviced and this ones been stored for 25 years and often.
It has all the fire hoses and even the original water buckets left in the rear cab and some equipment in the other cabinets, plus the ladders on the roof. It needs a start-up service, new batteries and overhaul of the brakes, then it should work again. We have driven a similar car before and they are going really well, with wonderful sound from the nice V8 engine.
As a remark, we would like to say that the wooden frames on the doors have swelled in some places, so they are difficult to close and open. This is because it has been standing cold in a garage recently, and this should go back if it is allowed to stand in the warm garage for a while. Incidentally, the body is in good condition, no remarkable or visible rust damage, nor rot in wooden parts, from what we could see

Facts about the model

Denna bil fick brandstationen i Värmländska Grums i maj 1958. En jättemodern brandbil då, som fyllde sin funktion i mer än tre decennier, ja nästan fyra, innan den blev samlarbil.Tuff design som fortfarande går hem. Kul som den är men också lämplig för ombyggnad om man så önskar.
