1929 American LaFrance

 

The 1929 American LaFrance is our pride and joy.  This truck was originally purchased by the Bolton Fire District.  It has most of the original fixtures and a working pump.   In November of 2005, the members of the Bolton Fire Company decided it was time to restore the “29”.  It has undergone a major frame off restoration at Northeast Body and Equipment.  We have added some pictures as the restoration takes place.  Any questions or comments regarding this truck should be sent to Steven DeLorenzo.
