We have a 1927 Amarican LaFrance Pumper that was our first pumper it has been sitting around several years now and I would love to see it restored. It was running in 1998 that was the last time we put it in the parade. The tires had gotten so bad that we decided to park it. It has been kept in the fire station so its not in awful shape. It was stored outside after 1966 that was when it was taken out of service. Sometime in the late seventies they sandblasted it and painted it not a great job but could be worse but since then it has been stored inside.
I was wondering if anyone had any information on a historical grant or some kind of program for restoring old apparatus? I will try to add some pictures soon.
Yeah actually me and a guy from my station are fixing up to old peices one is a early 1950s american lafrance on a ford f600 the other were not sure but its a ford chasises good luck on yours we are also looking for money to restore the paint and maybe some old gear for them
