1974 Oshkosh M1500 Firetruck: Not As Cool As The Jeans But Still Pretty Cool

oshkoshWe know what you’re thinking — Oshkosh jeans — what ever happened to them? They made us look awesome as a kid. Sadly this auction isn’t for them, but take solace in the fact that this is still a pretty rad auction for a  super rare item. Maybe not as rad as those Oshkosh’s our Nana bought us when we were 5, but still rad nonetheless. Anyway, this 1974 Oshkosh M1500 firetruck is currently available for live auction and is awaiting your bid! It sports a diesel engine, 1500 gallon water tank, and has just over 30k miles on her. It needs batteries and has a few leaky valves but other than that isn’t in bad shape. All bidders are strongly encouraged to inspect this item before bidding. The current price for this red beauty is just $2,122 with 6 bids already placed. This auction will be ending shortly, so be sure to activate your free trial account before it’s too late. Do it for Nana.
