Guessing it's in somebodies private collection seeing the ax and hand cranked siren is still with it.


In the picture with the ax, any idea what the canister has in it?

It's for sale at a commercial vehicle salvage yard. But they want more than I'm willing to pay with all the work that it needs. I assume it's an older dry chemical extinguisher, But I have no idea beyond that, I was in flip flops and was already too far into the brush lol.

If I had the money to buy it, I would. I have the facilities to do the restoration, and the time, and the historical experts to get it done right. We're storing an early 50s ALF at one of our stations for someone that just finished a resto on it.

That is a nice piece of history right there, hope someone gets it and does it right.

See, if I had won the lottery last night, I'd probably spend the rest of my life buying up old cars and trucks and bringing them back to life.

Would be a nice way to spend my retired years.

Out of curiosity, what are they asking for it?

Gorgeous!

Also: is that a 1939 Ford in the back? The only other thing that comes to my mind that looks remotely similar would be an old Framo Truck from the former GDR (East Germany) but i guess one of that wouldn´t possibly wind up in the US.

The counter guy said either 10k or 12k, but he'd have to ask the owner to be sure. It's been there a long time, I suspect 5 cash would be enough knowing those guys.

I could answer you, but if I said anything other than "i have no idea" I'd be lying. I'm not the vehicle buff that many are. I just really dig hisotrical apparatus.

I might be tempted for 5k in my area. But the amount of work, and the near impossibility of finding parts might be enough to dissuade me.

I'd be tempted, but all I'd do is try to build a hot rod out if it.

It's more complete than the last International I bought!
