Classified Ads for Subscribers

Did you know that Classified ads for “For Sale” and “Wanted” items are free to Vintage Fire Truck & Equipment subscribers? Not a subscriber? Click here.

Subscribers get 1 free ad per issue up to 30 words. A word, in this case, is any combination of letters or numbers separated by a space.

Example of 19-word Classified advertisement

Example of 19-word Classified advertisement

A word, in this case, is any combination of letters or numbers separated by a space. Items must be for pre-1980 fire trucks and equipment or toys, parts, and literature related to them. In the 19-word ad above, “5-speed” counts as 1 word, even though it is hyphenated, and the state indicator of “NC” is not counted. We’ve placed one red dot after each word for purposes of illustration.

What if I need to use more than 30 words?

The subscriber will pay $.50 for each word over the initial 30. Items must be for pre-1980 fire trucks or toys, parts, and literature related to them.

What if I want to include a photograph?

To include a color photo with a Classified ad, add $30 for a photo, which will run at a maximum of 1.5 inches high.

What if I want my Classified ad to really stand out?

There is a Deluxe Classified option that allows bold lettering and yellow highlighting for $.70 a word, but it cannot be combined with a free subscriber ad. Visit this page for non-subscribers for more information on the Deluxe option.
