Third generation Model 66E if I am not mistaken. Big sucker, ladder and hose truck. May or may not have a pump.......they also had three different pumps available. Unfortunately a big and heavy machine that there is very little interest in today, and the motor rebuild costs just as much as a Model J Duesenberg. I have owned a few of them, lots of fun, and lots of work. Smaller trucks are in demand....if they fit in a regular garage. PS- I see signs that the engine has been changed out....very, very common.....so one should NOT assume that the truck is any one particular year.......they kept upgrading them for decades. I see parts on there from the 1930's to the 1950's.

Ed:

What size Pierce-Arrow-based V-12 would this be?    I wonder why half the spark plugs aren't connected.   Would this V-12 be any use for a speedster?

 

Maybe that price includes the dilapidated Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow sedan too.

Motor is a boat anchor..........making the dual distributor set up work is very expensive and difficult. It’s a 504 series engine........no parts, no gaskets, burns gas like no tomorrow and makes little horsepower. Not a speedster engine at all.........it’s literally is a ton of cast iron.
