Offered here is a 1951 American LaFrance Series 700 triple
combination pumper! This unit sold new to Bay City, Michigan Fire
Department and stayed stored there its entire life! It was used
briefly as a fire reserve truck, before heading to the Bay City
Antique Toy & Fire Truck Museum to go on display until just earlier
this year. It remains exceptionally original without any major
Powered by its original 527ci V12 gasoline engine mated to a
4-speed manual transmission, it was recently treated to a complete
fuel delivery service to start and run confidently once again. This
included dropping the fuel tank for a flush, cleaning, and sealing;
then reinstalled with new electric fuel pump to provide fresh fuel
to twin, rebuilt Zenith carburetors. The engine oil and filter were
replaced, along with cleaning up some wiring and adjusting the
brakes. We have had the privilege to enjoy this wonderfully
preserved piece of history around our facility and find the
operation to be surprisingly driver friendly compared to many other
fire apparatuses we've represented in the past!
Additional features include its original fire-fighting equipment:
extension latter, dual hard section hose extensions, two rolls of
soft fire hose, two separate some diameter hose reels with
auxiliary onboard water tank, working Beacon-Ray red light, working
B&M Siro-Drift siren, dual outside mirrors, added aftermarket
turn signals, multiple spotlights, and original pumper controls and
instrumentation. Also included with the sale with be the axe, pike
pole, portable extinguisher, hose reel crank handle, hose link
connector, and two fire coats. This is a stellar opportunity for
enthusiast collectors of unique cab-forward fire trucks from
American LaFrance, or fire fighting equipment in general! Please
feel free to call about adding this example to your collection and
shipping options to get it home! Thanks for looking!
