This wonderful pressed steel fire ladder truck is complete. The driver is there and usually missing. All 4 pieces of the ladder are there. This fire truck was made by Dayton c 1910. It is a friction truck that no longer works. One wheel at the back where the friction "works" are, will not turn. This truck has it's original red and green paint with silver accents. The ladders are nickel plated. The driver is 2 pieces and holds the steering wheel. Two of the ladders hang on the sides. The other two are attached, incorrectly, to a crank. This truck is 18" long x 4-1/2" wide x 6" tall when the ladders are down.
This truck has been loved and has survived several generations. There is surface rust throughout. And there are paint nicks. As seen in picture #15, the green "steps" are crackled. These were finished in the past so it is not chipping or peeling. There are two larger "spots" of paint wear as seen in picture #14. There is one on each side on the running boards. This truck does show some wear, but it is complete and still presents very well. Please look at all of my pictures.
