Spotted in Freeport, Maine is a 1979 Mercedes 608D Polish Fire Truck for $19,500 USD. This 608 started life in Poland and purchased from a Polish Fire House in 2018 and imported into the USA. It has 18,000 original miles on it. All fire pump equipment in rear of cab has been removed and its an open shell to be used as is or to be up fitted for a more permanent camper status, etc. The rear side and back doors roll up for convenience and/ or open air camping. Has an OM 314 diesel motor – know to run 500K miles without issue. These vehicles are super popular for overlanders as they are very reliable and rarely break down over long distances. All lights, gauges, etc in working order. A small bit of surface rust in some spots, but overall in very solid condition. Under carriage is rust free. Great fun to run with rear doors open and a very cool vehicle for weekends with the family or promotional for business. Good hauler as well for dirt bike, mountain bike, etc. Super fun to drive and always a conversation starter. Rare to find in USA and getting harder to find in Europe.
As you know more restorations are taking place in Eastern Europe like Poland where the skills and level of craftsmanship are high. If you have an Jaguar XKE that was involved in an front end accident, you can now order a brand new aluminum alloy front bonnet from Warszawa, Poland. It is nice to know they are making these body parts to support these cars. I do see many restorations going on at the moment. All I ever heard growing up was how unreliable these cars were and to stay away. There time has come and enthusiasts are rediscovering these cars again the last 4 years. All the problems associated with these cars are now sorted out with improved and superior parts solutions. These are truly some of the most beautiful cars in the world.
