The firetruck is the perfect vintage car for collectors or as advertising vehicle for companies. With a strong focus on originality, it was partly restored in the USA a couple of years ago. What is particularly impressive is the completeness of almost all add-on components – from fire hose to the small fire extinguishers with leather straps. Many of the pressure meters and filling level gauges still work properly. The truck is in running condition, however, in order to obtain a German registration, wear parts of steering, brakes, running gear and electrics should be checked and renewed where necessary.

This rarity was built by the Luverne Fire Apparatus Company in Minnesota. It was made on basis of an International Harvester from the KB series. In 1949 the last vehicles of this model series were built. What is so characteristic of these firetrucks is the large chrome grill in the front part and an engine hood opening in “Alligator Style“. Another special feature are the headlamps that are integrated into the fenders. (kre)
