Used Tow Trucks And Wreckers For Sale – A Southern California man is trying to sell a fire truck in 1935 that seems to have been used at Park Point. “1935 Ford Duluth D-Gas Fire Engine Minnesota Water Pumper Parade uses WOW” wrote Chris Estep of Vista, California, on an eBay list posted last week.
By telephone and by email, Estep said he did not know much about the truck beyond what he had learned from the previous owner. He bought it a month ago from the Old Mission Beach Athletic Club, a non-profit organization that sponsors adult and teenage sports leagues in San Diego “since you were born,” according to his Facebook page.

But the club told him that it had been built for Duluth firefighters, Estep said. The corroborating evidence is a 1985 letter from Roper Pump Co. in Commerce, Ga., to M. Peterson in San Diego who identified pumps for trucks that had been built in 1938 “for Duluth Fire Department, Duluth, Minnesota.”
Estep also submitted a 1995 letter from Captain Jerry Keppers, author of the book “Fire and Ice: A History of Duluth Fire Department,” responding to a truck investigation from Kevin Peterson from North Central Adjusters.
According to the 1936 Fire Department annual report, the truck was worth $ 475 plus $ 1,740 for firefighting equipment so it could be used as a special fire truck, writes Keppers. But the 1938 annual report said the truck was renovated as a “hose car” with a booster pump to replace the old hose truck at Park Point. It was replaced at Park Point in 1958 and “removed from service” in 1959, according to Keppers letter.
The 1935 truck was the only Duluth unit to be given a new pump in 1938, writes Keppers.
“I don’t have a serial number. For this vehicle, I’m sure it’s our old unit,” he continued.
The Old Mission Beach Athletics Club, which did not respond to questions via e-mail and did not include a telephone number on its website, showed two old fire trucks on the site. They are used to represent clubs at parades and at charity events, he said. “This is NOT a fire truck that is operating. They cannot respond to fires and so do the old grandparents who can control it.”
When he saw the truck, it read “OMBAC Fire Dept.,” said Estep. The sales contract requires that he delete “O” and “C,” so that it will no longer be identified with Old Mission Beach. As such, it is now an MBA MBA. “It’s meaningless,” Estep said, laughing.
Estep parked a truck outside his business, a collection and antique shop called the “Vista Trading Post,” to attract customers, he said. The driver of the tow truck who sent him said he got more “thumbs up” than for anything he had transported, Estep added.
But he also bought it to sell it, register under $ 20,000 or the best offer, and also put it on Craigslist. That’s what he did.
“I buy and sell cars that are really cool,” said Estep, who also buys and sells toucans, rainforest birds with unusually large and colorful beaks.
He would be happy if someone from Duluth bought the truck, said Estep. But many of the vehicles he sold were eventually sent abroad.
“Most of them go to Russia or Japan,” he said. “There, they are worth four times as much.”
