Mack. Engine No. 4 was ordered in the early 80’s, and came right after an order of 10 engines that were ordered from FDNY. Mack said that if the department kept the same red as the FDNY they would get a discount, and Louisville has had the same red color ever since. FDNY has changed their red since, but Louisville has kept the same color red, and any FDNY rig from the 80’s will have the same red color as Louisville.
