Everyone takes the Crown today, with David Boudrie 1st out of the box. This truck is a 1955 Crown model CP-125, built for the Huntington Beach Ca Fire Department. Bill White sent the info and b&w photo below, while Mike W sent the link. Unfortunately the photos in the link do not open for me, perhaps some of you will have better luck. Thanks to Dan Souday for the color pic.

Huntington Beach's Tender 8201 is this 1955 Crown carrying serial number F1042.  She is fitted with a Hall-Scott 935
gasoline motor paired with a Fuller 5-speed manual transmission.  She is equipped with a 1,250 gpm Waterous pump and has capacity to carry 2,500 gallons of water.  Huntington Beach Fire Chief DG Higgins developed the specifications and helped engineer this unit.  As originally equipped, it carried two 1" booster lines each 150' long on electric reels, four 1 1/2" pre-connected lines each 100' long and two pre-connected 2 1/2" lines each 100' long.  An additional 1,600' of 2 1/2" line is carried in the hose bed.  A 600 gpm Elkhart deck gun was connected directly to the pump via a 3" gate valve.  After serving Huntington Beach, Tender 8201 was sold the Sierra Brooks Fire Department in Loyalton, CA.  In April of 1997, it was declared surplus and put up for sale.  It was purchased and currently owned by a collector.
 This tender is one of three built by Crown Coach.
The other two being F1376 for Carmichael, California and F1653 for Juneau, Alaska.

I worked at huntington beach fire as an intern I was cleaning the study when i found a picture of this rig I'm now 40 I would like to find who bought it and get more pictures, I was told it was built for a water supply in and around the oil fields along with the wet lands in huntington. If I would have known it was for sale I would have bought it, I was told at the time it was sent up north to a department and was still in service this was in 1995  I'm glad to see that it is still around it was a odd build and way over built.... any leads as to who has it send me an email n2rescue@verizon.net thanks mike
