1929 American LaFrance *Updated*

 

The 1929 American LaFrance is our pride and joy. Unfortunately it’s not a 1929. The truck we affectionately call the ’29 is actually a 1930 American LaFrance. All documentation we have which includes the bill of sale and the pump test performed prior to us taking delivery says 1930.  This truck was originally purchased by the Bolton Fire District.  When time came for the District to sell the truck it was purchased by the Fire Department for use as a parade truck and display piece. It has been restored a few times over the years but the most comprehensive referb took place in November of 2005 and took almost a full year to complete. Beside the necessary body work and paint, all of the nickel platting was restored. We included a few picture below of the truck.  Our truck will be featured at our Hundredth Anniversary parade this October as the lead vehicle carrying the parade Grand Marshall’s. Any questions or comments regarding this truck should be sent to Steven DeLorenzo.

“Even though the truck is a 1930 it will always be called the ’29 Because that’s what has always been called!”
