1920 American La France Pumper

Below is my personal truck, a 1920 American La France Pumper. This truck is originally from Mount Vernon NY and had begun the long road to recovery from being bottled up in an old barn in Saranac Lake NY for almost 50 years. Repairs have been relegated to the engine with re-honing, repairs and re-assembly the truck now runs very well. The clutch and brakes even worked after all those years. More restoration will continue with pictures and updates to follow.
