637v8, would you consider doing a short You-tube video on this truck? I'd love to hear what it sounds like. Lots of V6 and V12 trucks on You-tube, not so many 637 V8s.

Looks like it was a fire truck, I think it says "Perth Fire" something on the door? Has it been in the family a long time? Great truck with a cool engine!

It was a fire truck but the body was so badly rusted we couldent even open the compartments and the pump was cracked. The guy we bought this from bought it in 2003 and the drove it right back into a field where it sat untill 2007 when we bought it.we are the 3rd owner!
