View Full Version : Antique Firetruck

In Maggie Valley, NC, there is a "museum" of antique vehicles. Out front is this very old firetruck that has obviously seen better days. I wanted to learn how old it is, but there was no one around to ask.

I'd put it at about 1954-55-56 vintage, but haven't determined teh make. Possible International though.

I hope someone intends to restore it. It looks like that could be a very nice looking truck with some work.

My guess would be early 50's maybe an American LeFrance. Nice shot. have you googled 'Old Firetrucks' to see what you'd get :lol: :lol:

This truck is a 1952 Oren that formerly served with Wanaque New Jersey Fire Dept. It was known as "Engine 1" and was pictured on all the literature & brochures Oren Fire Apparatus sent out in 1952. They sold it when they got a newer truck and somehow it ended up here in my neck of the woods. It's a really neat old truck, but it doesn't look like anyone's planning to restore it. It just sits out there in front of Wheels Through Time on Highway 19/Soco Rd. Hope this info helps!
