Known primarily for their fabulous firetrucks, American LaFrance Fire Engine Company made an unknown quantity of road vehicles for a short period in time before World War I. At no time did the famous Elmira, New York firm envision readjusting its priorities to road cars, but the ones that were built were all done to order and were regarded as mighty fast. This massive car runs with a T-head six-cylinder engine with a three-speed manual transmission and impressive chain-drive gearing. The speedster body is nicely finished in a cream tone with tasteful red pinstripes that match the red chassis and undercarriage. The cockpit area, with right-hand drive, features beautifully tufted individual seating that is brown in color and a finished wood dashboard. Along with the wooden-spoke wheels, you will find dual rear-mounted spares, an imposing header side pipe exhaust, strategically placed grab handles, monocle windscreen, moto-meter, side-mounted toolbox; plated headlights, steering column and radiator shell, plus a cylindrical fuel tank. This American LaFrance has a commanding presence whether on display or at speed.
