I am trying to find a 1924 American La France that used to be part of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The rig was originally stationed in Lomita, Ca. at Station 6. I’m trying to help our museum find it and get it restored for the 100 year anniversary of our dept. in 8 years. The registration no. is 4786 and it is a type 75 triple. The last known info that we have on it is that it was owned by a gentleman named Ed Brown in Roseville, Ca. We tried calling the phone number we had for him but no one at the number knew who he was. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. I’m including some pictures that I have from back in the day. Feel free to call me at any time. 562-715-7408 or email

Our Department is interested in buying a 1946 Chevrolet pumper similar to one we owned when first organized. Our original engine had a Ward La France body, but this is less critical. Ideal engine would be already restored but an un-restored engine in top condition would be considered. Wading River Fire Dept. (631) 929-4340 or EmailWanted Category: Apparatus.
I am looking for any information or the location of the 1963 B Model MACK Sedan Cab, from the ALPHA Fire Company in State Collage PA. The Engine was sold to a gentleman out of state many years ago. I have no idea of where the truck has gone to but I would appreciate any information. David Edmiston EmailWanted Category: Apparatus.
