    It looks a bit like Triplet, but is fatter in different areas...
    Anyone know what font it is? I don't recall ever seeing it.

    Looks like a nicely done leaf job executed by a talented professional who used his own typestyle.
    But if you want to come close use friz and doctor as needed.
    Hope this helps

    When they first came out with spun gold vinyl a lot of gold men went and digitized their own special fire apparatus font,...I know I did because my steady customers wanted all their trucks to look alike,...you don't argue with a client spending anywhere from a quarter to half a million dollars on a vehicle they want you to letter,....

    Because of the pattern of the turns in the gold, I am also inclined to believe that this was hand leafed.

    As stated, You will probably have to doctor up some close font. Try searching for fonts with a keyword of "flare" style serif.
