It appears that the ex-MPLS trucks that are in Arden Hills were sold on the Minnbid online web auction. I looked up the results last week but cannot find them now but it appears one went for $4,000 and the other went for $4,100. Usually the state wants stuff gone ASAP once it is sold and last I looked the other day they were both still there so this might have been the case of a no-show bidder etc.
Per the Wayne Pike Auction website both of those 92 pumpers they had on the auction sold for $3,000 a piece. The fuel tanker sold for $2,250 and the International flatbed sold for $1,750. What floors me is that nobody mentioned that in addition to all of the ex-MPLS trucks at this auction, somebody also was selling an ex St. Paul 1949 Ward LaFrance pumper that ended its career as Reserve E36. It looked like it was in very well kept and complete condition and sold for $3,100 which seems like a fair price even in light of the economy.
