Many of these trucks don’t get a whole lot of use, like the stair trucks - it’s not like they’re shuttling back and forth, day in and day out - so it’s no surprise that they can run forever. In California we had incentives to get rid of old vehicles for emissions reasons, especially the things powered by the ancient Ford I6, but most places aren’t that draconian when it comes to pollutants. I had a station that wanted to replace their old ramp truck, because in 2014 they were still driving a 1968 Ford. I guess it’s kind of hard to kill those things, rolling cockroaches, I guess.

And of course, don't forget the Bluth family...
