Worldwide Vintage Autos is pleased to present this 1922 Stoughton
Engine.�All equipment in photos comes with the truck including

3" binders are included with extensive restoration pictures and
detailed documentation on this and the other surviving Stoughton
fire trucks. �Material incudes copies of vintage manuals, parts
lists and build sheets.
This 1922 is one of only 14 known surviving Stoughton Fire Engines
and the records indicate the only known 1922 in existence. �This
rig was in service from the 1940's to about 1980 at the Dresser,
Osceola, Garfield Fire Association in Dresser, Wisconsin. �It has
been in private hands since then.
Stoughton Wagon Works was founded in 1865 near Stoughton, Wisconsin
and was originally making horse drawn wagons. �By 1883 Stoughton
was the largest employer in the area with over 250 people working
at the plant. �The company began to make specialty trucks in the
1910's before a fire damaged much of their facility in 1919 - in
large part due to a lack of fire trucks in the area. �In 1922,
Stoughton produced their first fire truck - the "Community Fire
Fighter" designed especially for small towns. They made fire trucks
through the late 1920's before shifting to larger trailers.
See article at the link below for reference. �Search on "fire" to
get the critical parts. �There is one error in the story as this
truck was the one owned by Bill Killen and it's mistakenly listed
as a 1923, but it is actually a 1922 (confirmed with Killen).

They are not making any more and, therefore, they are becoming more
rare by the day. Buy one complete and ensure your investment for
the future. Doing a restoration / customization project on a Fire
Engine�like this would cost over $60,000 not including the vehicle
itself. Don't do the work yourself, get one finished for roughly
half of the cost of building it yourself!�
