    Pretty sure that PL Custom/Rescue 1 in Wall, NJ made some rescues on Volvo chassis.

    I don't believe any of the cabovers series Volvo's are available in the US any longer.
    Only conventional over the road long nose tractors

    Yes, I believe that is the case, no cabovers on Volvo US website.

    Markyc, try EVI, they are a Florida custom rescue manufacturer. They will build their bodies on any chassis.

    Markyc, were you looking for something that was built previously or are you looking to get something built in the future?

    Sutphen recently delivered this industrial pumper, built on a Volvo FM. Right hand drive and everything.
