Take a good look at the 1941 Chevy Southern truck and you'll notice that the vehicle still has many original parts. The engine, gauges, oak flooring, and even the ladders are the ones that came with the truck when it rolled into Greer more then 70 years ago.
It harkens back to the days when firefighters rode to blazes on the truck's tailboard.
Two major expenses -- paint and new tires -- have already been donated by generous patrons. Work on the motor and transmission, replacing chrome, purchasing new ladders, repairing flooring, and generally putting the vehicle into parade shape to represent the City of Greer and its Fire Department will cost approximately $5,000, according to Chief Harvey.
The department plans to show the truck at city festivals and events where it will solicit donations for the restoration project. If you attend one of these events, please stop by and take a look at Engine Two.
