Very nice looking truck! Amazing that they made them for another 11 years! Looks like it may have been in service at an airport seeing it has 'foam' controls on the pump? That would probably explain the low mileage...

Our local CFS had one of these in use as a tanker/pumper for many years - it outlasted quite a few jap trucks and whenever you saw a firetruck around the Adelaide hills you would always spot the coro valley tanker before you saw the writing!
