Auburn #518 Utility Truck

Today's Fire Engine and Emergency Vehicle Friday offering is kind of iffy. We're continuing our look at the Auburn Rubber Company's line of vehicles and our featured vehicle, the #518 Utility Truck is sold by many people as a fire truck simply because it's red and the detailing on the side resembles ladders. Really, this is basically just a utility truck, but that's OK because fire departments had a variety of utility trucks in their service and so we'll just go with that. I have seen this same truck offered in other colors besides red but I don't have any - yet  :-)  The silver detailing on my sample is fairly intact on one side but worn off on the other, but the truck itself is in fairly decent shape. Enjoy!
