It was purchased in 1977 from the West End Fire Co. of Pottsville in Schuykill County for $33,500. It was repowered in 1981 with a 6-71 Detroit Diesel motor. It was sold in 1985 to a private individual who wanted it to put the motor in a tractor trailer. The pump was inoperable at the time of the sale. The body sat behind the old Franklin Firehouse in Chester for many years before allegedly being sold for scrap.
