About this creation

The year 1973 marked the 100th anniversary of the founding of the LaFrance Manufacturing Company of Elmira, New York. In October 1973 at the 100th annual Conference of International Association of Fire Chiefs, American LaFrance unveiled the Century Series of apparatus. The Century Series was a total redesign from the 15 year old 900 Series.

The Century Series featured a wider cab and larger windshield. At least ten different diesel engine options were offered. Pumps were offered in sizes from 750 gpm to 2000 gpm. Stainless steel 500 gallon tanks were standard on pumpers.

The Century Series was used for pumpers, aerials and snorkels. The largest order of Century Series pumpers was the 85 ordered by FDNY in 1980 and 1981. Of these 84 were red, and one, Engine 65, was lime yellow. Production of the Century was halted in 1985 when American LaFrance closed its doors. When American LaFrance reopened for business in 1986 the new Century 2000 model was announced and put into production.
The American LaFrance Fire Engine Company Ltd was founded in January 1904. Over the past 107 years the name of the company has changed many times. American LaFrance is one of the oldest names in the fire apparatus industry. Originally, American LaFrance was based in Elmira, New York. The company now operates out of Summerville, South Carolina. Although no longer a dominant force in fire apparatus manufacturing American LaFrance has built more fire apparatus than any other company in the world. BFD552@gmail.com.

These American LaFrance engines are what I think about when I think of fire apparatus from my childhood. You have added another great vintage engine to the collection. Regards, Eric.

Very nice. It certainly has a distinct Lego-Classic look to it too... ;-)

This is a very nice rig. Although, can you tell me what this old American LaFrance is on the City of Pittsburgh Fleet? http://www.pittsburghfire.net/news/?page_id=356
