Nothing even close. At least not that I've ever known of.

I saw that episode. Intriguing fire engine, for sure! I was hoping to see it restored, not hosed.

Looks to be based off a '47-53 GMC truck- a couple of AMT '50 Chevy kits and a LOT of scratchbashing would have to fill in the blanks.

Actually found a vintage ad for something that looks very similar- http://yngfire.com/i...p?topic=1374.30

Link to Bruco info:

And a cab to start with:
http://www.aitruckmo...k110gmc530.html
and the rear doors are the same as the fronts and if you buy the Texaco Chevy Model kit that is out it will have the doors for the back and the 5 window rear cab panel. Keep in mind the side window are flat glass so that would be easy to make.
