The year is 1950 and the military is selling off surplus equipment like it is going out of style. Pine Lake State Park and Redlands VFD happen to each aquired one of the 1942 1.5ton 4wd Chevorlet firetrucks that were built for the military.  Flash forward to today the pair of old workhorses have been repainted, and restored but can still put up a hell of a fight alongside their modern sisters in the fleet while still going places that the big new trucks could just imagine.

They came a long way from the Greenlight Srg Rock Dodge 1/4 ton pickup,
This is one of my references for these builds, there are some variants on the real trucks just like these 2 and as we all know depending on there and how they were used the chances of of one let alone 2 of these trucks still being in original manufacturer configuration was slim to none let alone over 74+- years in service.
