Matt Droege of Creswell, OR: I have the 1953 GMC Howard Cooper factory “twin screw” with the 500 GPM pump. I found this truck during the Swanson’s mill fire in Springfield parked on a farm in the area. I vowed to return someday to find out where it was from and who built it. When I did the owner offered it up for a price I could not refuse. It is in progress but does run and drive with only 6K miles. It last served for Siuslaw Valley in Mapleton Or.
