Nice truck. Hopefully they leave it just like that. Have not seen many firetrucks using that cab design. Quite unique

Does anyone have some photos of any Willys firetrucks?

If anyone is ever passing through Iowa on I-80 be sure and stop in and see our 1913. These pictures aren't the best, the weather wouldn't cooperate for me to pull her outside for a photo op.

sure . Iwill check that out.

Do you have access to the truck? There should be a serial number either under the hood on the firewall, passenger side or under the dash on the passenger side. If you can get this serial number we will be able to tell you the year plus the deluvery date.

yes it is a fiberglass cap . you may be right on the 49.The truck set in the chief's yard for a while & was started 7 drove to the firehall about 10 years ago , then set behind the FH for a while , then started & moved under this shed. I think he was going to ask $1500 for it. We are 75 miles south of Nashville TN.

Based on the windshield and the bumper I would say this is probably a 49 or 50. It appears to be a 750 GPM open cab that has had a fiberglass cap added at some point. Where is the truck located and what are you looking to get for it?
