Info on International C30 Pumper (6-22-18)

I just bought an International C30 Pumper. It’s registered as a 1937, but I believe it’s a ’36- I don’t think they made C30’s in 1937. The truck is all original — with 3288 total miles on it. (That’s driving it about 40 miles per year) It came out of Mason City, NE. It’s always been out of the weather and garaged, so the wood planking on the cab floor and rear well is basically like new. I’m trying to find out more about the Internationals in general, and definitely more about this apparatus. Research has just begun. Attached are some photos which you can post on your website. I have a fairly large (100 +/-) collection of polished brass nozzles as well. Email  or 253-227-2167

Looking for Current Owner (6-22-18)

I am looking for the current owner of the 1952 Seagrave featured in the attached photos.  The last I knew, it was owned by Richard Campbell in central New Jersey.  That was in 2009.  The email address that I have for Richard is no longer valid.  Looking to acquire the engine to place back in the Kohler, WI Fire Department to celebrate their heritage.

Thanks, Dave Darin Email  or  (920) 980-5647 Kohler, WI

USFS Class C tankers of 1950-60s (3-12-18)

I would like to ask for info on building a USFS Class 3 forest fire tanker, c. 1956-64? I was a summer fire fighter to pay my way through college, and remember fondly driving a ’56 Chevy and ’64 Dodge Class 3 — which was just a 2T flatbed with a slip-on pumper/tool/open crew unit. Sounds hokey, but we were very effective: ‘back in the ‘day, when we actually put out the fires’! I’ve never done a truck or a fire rig before, tho I built my first car model about 1954 with dad, from the Gowland/Revell “Highway Pioneers” series. Wick Humble

Wanted Category: Information.

As an officer of the Latham Fire Department, AKA (S. W. Pitts Hose Co) I have attached a photo of our first piece of firefighting equipment, which I’m trying to locate. The piece in question is a 1910 Howe combination chemical engine which we purchased new at that time, posed in front of the then station, with many interested residents in attendance.

We believe the 1910 Howe is in a private collection, possibly in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont or in the New England area. Any assistance in locating the whereabouts of this historical piece would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance for your assistance,

Richard Barlette
