This 1925 Stutz Model K Fire Truck has been used and enjoyed thoroughly by its current steward and is ready for its next caretaker.  An extensive engine rebuild was performed on the original Midwest engine and it runs like a swiss watch.  This is a turn key 1925 Stutz Model K Fire Truck, also know as the Baby Stutz Fire Truck.  Ready to show, parade or just have a blast!
