This one-of-a-kind 1950 Chevy 6400 Fire Truck will honor and escort  our country's greatest heroes around the state of Ohio in funeral processions.  Old 132-1 is the first fire truck Sharon Twp owned. Fire engines today are  over 10' tall and are too tall to bear caskets in a fashion worthy of the  respect and honor those who have fallen deserve. This truck will feature an  apparatus with a custom built casket system that will allow firefighters to  remove the casket without tilting it. These local heroes are our first  responders, ready to serve their community and give their lives to save others.  Being transported to a final resting place on a fire engine is considered the  highest honor a firefighter can receive, a tradition of respect for all they  gave, making their "Last Alarm" ride to their final resting place one with  dignity. This project is a true honor to be restoring. We will make it look like an original 1950 fire truck but it will operate like a new one. We built a custom chassis which holds a Cummins 6BT Diesel backed by an Allison 1000 automatic transmission, It will have Ford F550 axles and brakes, Power steering, and the interior will be all custom. Originally the truck would only run 35 mph and now it will be capable of going down the road at 80 mph.
