Fire Truck (pumper) - 1965 GMC 5000

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine from the fire station buys his vehicles from a partiuclar Dodge dealership in southern NJ; he bought himself a 2012 Ram 2500 Power Wagon this year, upgrading from his 2010 Ram 1500 Crew Cab 4WD. He mentioned to me on more than one occasion that the dealer owner is a fire truck enthusiast and had amassed a small collection of vintage fire trucks. Not having any partiuclar need for them, after a few years of ownership and storing outdoors on the dealer lot, he decided to sell them off. He took a picture of one he though I'd like, which he thought was a Chevy, and sent it to me last month. I've been meaning to go online and check it out, finally doing it today.


Turns out that it's a 1965 GMC 5000 chasis cab "Custom Cab" trim with a pumper body installed. Pretty sweet truck, if you ask me. The online price is $4,995, but my friend told me I could buy it for less than that if I was interested. I wish I had an indoor storage space and the cash for it, as I would jump in a heartbeat for this GMC.

Click here to see the online ad at the dealership's website. He also has a 1960 Maxim fire truck for sale too, if you know anyone into them:

Strathmere is out near me. Between Ocean City and Sea Isle City. Very interesting.
