We’ve seen these sorts of hook-and-ladder conversions – meant primarily to ferry kids around amusement parks in the 1950s and 1960s – on Crosleys before, but this is the first one we’ve seen based on a Metro. The seller of this 1960 Metropolitan hasn’t yet included a description of it, but from the photos, we can see that it was built by Overland Amusements of Lexington, Massachusetts (which also converted Crosleys into amusement park fire trucks), and that it served the Storyland amusement park in Bushkill, Pennsylvania. Gotta wonder if Overland converted any other diminutive cars into fire trucks.

UPDATE (9.March 2011): Mikes Big 429 uploaded this photo of a similar Metro fire truck from the Catskill Game Farm to the Hemmings Nation Flickr pool.
