Released in 1966, the Crash Crew set (7820) allowed kids to dress up their Action Pilot in a silver foil fire suit and various accessories and tools. The set included an ax, flashlight, strap cutter, and pliers.
The Crash Crew Fire Truck (8040) was released in 1967 and is probably one of the most iconic early GI Joe vehicles. It had several play features:
- Working siren and light
- Working pump and water cannon that could shoot up to ten feet
- 3 foot extendable ladder
My customs did not turn out as well as I would have hoped. I had some trouble with the silver. I plan to improve these in the future, but for now, they work well alongside the rest of the figures in this project.
