I think there were many of that size trucks built for structure (barracks) fires on military bases in the US during the war??? I know of a 41 Ford about that size with Buffalo Apprentice that was originally based at Stewart Field in Newburg NY.

The HC105 is a good looking rig.

That's a great story Scott, that is very cool you were able to positively identify the truck as Vancouver's old pumper. That will be quite a restoration project on such a rare truck.
