If you have ever dreamed, for whatever the reason is, of owning your very own firetruck, now may be your chance. The town of Vassalboro just happens to have one up for sale and they are taking bids on it right now. It's not the newest one cruising the Maine roadways in search of the next emergency, but hey, owning a firetruck of any age would be pretty darn cool. The truck is being sold 'as is where is' and can be previewed by contacting Chief Walker Thompson @ 207.649.1326.

This bad boy is a 1981 Hendricks Custom cab. And don't worry about grindin' em' til you find em', this rig comes complete with an automatic transmission. That transmission will shift right quick under the power of the massive Detroit Diesel. Need to stop on a dime? The on board air braking system will just about put you through the window so make sure you put your seat belt on.

Also, let's remember this IS in fact a firetruck and comes complete with a 1,000 gallon water tank. That should work out well when you need to put out the fire you started in your marriage when you brought this rig home without telling your wife first.

In all seriousness, if you're truly interested in placing a bid, drop your sealed envelope off at the Vassalboro Town Office no later than noontime on March 29th, 2021. Make sure your envelope says “Vassalboro Fire Department-1981 Fire Truck Bid”. Town officials will begin opening the bids at the submission deadline and town Selectmen will review the bid during their 6PM meeting on April Fool's Day (April 1st).


The town of Vassalboro reserves the right to accept or reject any and all bids.
