1959 Mack B85 Rescue
This unit is a 1959 Mack B85 Rescue with a body built by Gerstenslager. It is similar to the famous unit used by FDNY Rescue 1. The Boston Fire Department also used a similar Mack B/Gerstenslager rescue truck.
About this creation
This unit carries many rescue tools not found on an engine or ladder company. It has a walk in body with seating positions for a crew of eight.

The Gerstenslager Company built fire apparatus and commercial truck bodies at its Wooster, Ohio, factory. Gerstenslager was active in the fire apparatus industry between 1945 and 1980. For most of that time, Gerstenslager was the leading manufacturer of custom-built fire service rescue truck bodies. Gerstenslager used many types of bodies and chassis to offer its customers an unmatched variety of options.

The Mack fire service B Model Mack was introduced in 1954. The previous year the commercial model went into production. The B model was produced until 1966. The versatile Model B was used for pumpers, hose wagons, mid-mount aerial ladders and tillers, quads, light units and rescues, such as this one. BFD552@Gmail.com
