You Can Buy This Firetruck In Utica
If you're looking to signup for a long-term restoration project, look no further than Facebook Marketplace. Currently, you can buy 2 firetrucks in the Utica Area. One of which is a 1942 Mack Model 25 Type 125 Crash Truck.
This fire truck caught our eye, and maybe you'd like to own a rare truck. The seller explains that under a government contract, Mack only made 200 trucks for WWII. These trucks were assembled at Mack's Long Island City plant from July 1942 thru April 1943.This truck is #65 of 200 made.
It was used in WWII and then used as a Fire Truck in Otter Lake, NY. From the factory it was painted Military Green (see finished example below) with NO chrome or Mack emblems.
The truck has a Mack 6-cyl. gas engine with a 4 speed and 2 speed rear end.
We have not tried to start or turn over the truck. It appears very complete and will need a complete restoration.
Currently the asking price is $4,300 or Best Offer. You can check out some of the photos below, and more on Facebook:
