I think this vehicle is actually gone from the FDNY roster, replaced by the 2002 Mack RD/Weldbuilt. BTW anyone has a photo of the IHC wrecker the FDNY used back in the 60s??

The 2002 Mack MR/Weldbuilt Wrecker did not replace this 1988 Mack/Weldbuilt,
it was still in use with the Maintenance Facility Section at least up until
2005.I have no records of a Mack RD/Weldbuilt from 2002?.The wrecker that
was purchased that year was a Mack MR/Weldbuilt.
David, may I ask why you want a picture of the 1960's International Wrecker
that was located at the old Training Centre on Randel's Island(truck 433)?.

Pete, thanks for the correction. I've seen a photo of the new (2002) rig in the fleet maintenance section of the "FDNYtrucks" site, so I thought that it was most probably meant to replace the one pictured here. As to your question -I've been interested in the FDNY ever since I can remember and especially in the older rigs. I just knew that they've been using the IHC wrecker back then but I haven't seen any photo of it so far, so it was just natural for me to ask if somebody could share it.

David, picture on its way of the 1960's Int/Harvester Wrecker of the F.D.N.Y.
Due to copyright on the picture, I can't send into this site though.OK, Pete.
