Is there a picture of the "AA" Texaco Tanker? If so, could you post a link to it? Thanks. Don/WI

I just looked thru all the listings for the auction and aside from a '29 Roadster Pickup running on Friday, I didn't see any other A's. Several nice Lincolns & Packards from the same era however.

At the very least it's cheap entertainment!

It looks like a fire truck to me.

Great looking truck! I bet it could be used as a water tanker in an antique fire department parade.

Kinda suprised its not a "dually" with a four compartment tank. Thats a lot of wieght, I wonder if there was some extra leaves in the spring packs.

I'd agree with the premise that someone took a firetruck and made a "tanker"
There's no place for the product pails, nor a way to fill them. No drag chain either.
And what's with those "boxes"?

If you look at the engine number pad and firewall, looks like it may have had a new VIN assigned to it.
