This spectacular 1954 R-192 International fire truck is part of the Fox Collection. It originally operated as Truck 10 with the Rock Falls Fire Department in Illinois, but was later transferred to the Dalzell Volunteer Fire Department in the very heartland of South Carolina. The R-192 model designation shows it was the heaviest option that allowed a 17,500 lb (8,000 kg) carrying capacity.
