Auctions America by RM always brings the cars, but for its Auburn Fall event, it’s bringing the stars, a whimsical 1967 Ford C-Cab Fire Truck, created by legendary custom car builder Chuck Miller and recipient of the Ridler award at the 1968 Detroit Autorama. He also created auto show concept cars for American Motors and Hurst Performance, as well as for Plymouth and Dodge.

According to Auctions America, the C-Cab Fire truck played off Vietnam era elements such as widespread male enthusiasm for fire trucks, the T-bucket and hot rod show-car crazes, and the much-loved C-Cab Mack and Model T trucks. Miller used these themes for inspiration in creating the C-Cab Truck. It has a single windshield, tiller steering, a small-block V8 engine, competition-themed American 12- and 5-spoke mag wheels.

Other stylistic elements include abbreviated wooden ladders, gold leaf side lettering, rear-only brakes, drum headlights, vintage Model T taillights, a winged Moto-Meter radiator cap, and a roof rack. The truck also features gold leaf Engine #13 lettering on the cab sides in full-fledged fire-engine style and drum headlights.

You could take it on the street, but Custom Ford C-Cab Fire Truck was mostly designed to win custom car shows. [Auctions America by RM]
