My Father drove and operated a 0-12 crashtruck in the late fifties. Ever since I was a little boy I loved hearing his stories about the rare truck. I'd like to be able to finally see one for myself and maybe even with my father. I know he would flip if he saw one again.
The only info I found on the unit was in a book about air force firefighters and according to my Dad there was alot that conflicted with his memories and the only picture of it was not correct. The 0-12 was built by Americanlafrance in the fifties. My Dad thinks there were no more than seven. It was an eightwheeled allwheel drive cross between an 0-11 and a p-2.
If anyone has any info on the where abouts of one ,maybe in someones collection or museum I would appreciate knowing about it. I have more info I can give you if needed.

Does this look familiar? You may want to go to www.dodfire.com and contact the owner (Donald Warner). He may have some additional information on the apparatus. I seriously do not think any are still intact however one could be sitting in a farmers field somewhere. You'd be surprised where some of the old apparatus is found!
