The National Board of Trustees has voted to offer advertising service on SPAAMFAA'S Web site. While this service was initially for members only, we have expanded eligibility to any advertising of antique apparatus or equipment that the webmaster deems appropriate. This change is to benefit our membership and the antique fire apparatus community in general by increasing dissemination of information that will assist in the conservation and/or restoration of antique fire apparatus. The procedure requires submittal of ad copy via email or via mail to: SPAAMFAA ads, 8035 Bird Pond Rd. , Adams Run, SC 29426. Telephone or verbal advertisements will not be accepted. The advertisement must be related to antique fire apparatus or equipment.

The advertisement categories will be: For Sale-Apparatus, For Sale-Other and Wanted-Apparatus and Wanted-Other. Information Wanted advertisements are acceptable for those doing research or restorations.   SPAAMFAA reserves the right to accept or reject any advertisement for any reason it deems appropriate. SPAAMFAA reserves the right to amend ad copy and to modify advertising policies at any time.

Please remember to let us know if your item(s) have sold so that we may keep the ad list current.

NEW: Members submitting advertisements may submit photographs via email. A thumbnail with a link to a larger photo will be posted with the advertisement. This benefit for our members is furnished at no cost. Photographs submitted should be in jpg format and at a minimum resolution of 96 dpi.

 A reminder to all fire departments:  SPAAMFAA will accept advertising from ANY fire department selling apparatus or appropriate equipment either by outright sale or by bid at NO COST to the department including posting of images.

Webmaster's Note:  The "Wanted" section has been split into two parts, Wanted-Apparatus and Wanted-Parts, Accessories Etc. I would also ask that anyone that has an ad running please advise if the ad is outdated and should be removed. Persons submitting an ad are asked to make sure that their "CAPS LOCK" is not on as receiving the ad in all capitals requires retyping to fit our format. This courtesy is appreciated.

For Sale - 1935 Ford-Buffalo Pumper - 500 GPM Hale centrifugal pump. Very complete truck with ladder, siren, ax, spotlights, extinguishers, lots of nozzles and hose, original Buffalo suction hoses, and much more. 85HP V-8 engine was completely professionally rebuilt and has barely been driven since rebuild. Truck is a great driver with plenty of power. Fire pump works but it's been a while since I've run it. This truck served Meredith NH Fire Department as Engine 2 from 1935 to sometime in the sixties. My father bought it from the dept in 1969 and had it painted at that time. Odometer reads 5,155, which I believe to be about right. To be nice, the truck could use a paint job, but it's more than presentable in its current condition. Needs new rear tires and has some other fairly minor issues that should be addressed. Vehicle is roughly 21 feet in length and fits in a typical home garage bay. Truck is located in New Hampshire. $22,000 OBO. Call Mike Dodge at 239-784-1863 (7-3-14 - - 14-41)

FOR SALE: 1975 American LaFrance Pioneer III 1000gpm pumper, serial # P-16-4643. V-6 Detroit with 8040 original miles, Dana 6852-G 5-spd transmission, single speed rear. Shows 720.2 Hours on the meter. Believe it to be a 1000 gallon steel tank. Originally from Blue Mountain Lake, NY, then briefly to Dresden NY and Ticonderoga NY before being traded in on a new truck. I'm the second private owner since then. Runs great other than needing new batteries (these can be charged to start the truck but won't hold the charge more than a day). I haven't driven it on the road since I drove it home, just around the block occasionally. I put new fuel filters on it, otherwise its untouched. Doesn't seem to have any mechanical issues. Strong air brakes. It last pumped in 2006 so I can't verify its pumping ability now. I know it was a great pumping truck in 2004 - 2006 when I fought fires with it before it was retired. As you can see, the paint job is faded. It has rust issues in the lower cab corners, a scrape to the passenger side front fender, and rot where the rear running board supports meet the body under the back compartments. Some basic welding skills and a bit of time should be all that's needed to solidify these areas. Nice interior, lightbar and siren work great, reel rewind works great. Has booster hose, ladder and axe brackets, no loose parts there other than hard suctions but they are the wrong size for the truck so buyer can opt to take them or not. I hate to part with this truck, I was going to repair and restore it next year but need to let this one go because the opportunity has come up to get my department's original 1959 ALF back and I need to free up money and space to be able to do that. Asking $3100 or best reasonable offer. I would like to see it go to someone who plans to keep it intact and preserved rather than parted out, as it is fairly complete and has great potential with a little effort. Please call 518-586-6081 and leave message. (6-1-13 - - 13-43)

An American Original!! You can own a piece of American Firefighting History!! 1953 American LaFrance Fire Truck. This truck is fully in tact. Only things it is missing are the hoses and you! The V12 engine turns but currently does not run. It was running until last fall. The timing was off and we tried to adjust it. Because it has two distributors, when you get one side timed you then have to get the other side. That's where we got off and haven't messed with it since. There is nothing cosmetically wrong with this truck. With a bit of elbow grease you can be rolling around town in your open cab. Purchased it from a museum and well, now it's time to let it go. Truck has been kept inside a barn except for these pictures. Will consider all reasonable offers.Know we're going to take a bath, so all I ask is make the water lukewarm! Happy to answer ANY questions! Jofree Fincher, 940.465.5748 or Email (4-21-13 - - 13-37)

For Sale 1978 Ford F615E Fire Pumper 1000 gallon tank 750 gpm pump 6810 actual miles Single axle with split rear Gas engine 5+2 speed manual transmission. 20" tires. We took this truck in on trade and at the time of the trade-in it was actually being used by the Gilbertown Alabama Volunteer Fire Department so it does run and pump. The research we were able to do indicates that this truck was probably manufactured in November 1978 by PAJ Industries in Rogersville, Alabama. Trucks like this one had previously been manufactured by the American Fire Pump Company of Battle Creek, Michigan. The truck was called the Plain Jane and was designed to be a rugged, durable workhorse. It seems that there were three models of the Plain Jane...the Special, the Streamlined, and the Super. We believe that this particular truck is either the Special or the Streamlined model. It comes with an extension ladder, two large suction hoses, and a mounted hose reel with hose (not sure whether the hose is in usable condition). We also have a use and care manual that came with the truck. We do not know the history of the truck prior to it being owned by the Gilbertown Alabama Volunteer Fire Department but believe that they might have been the original owners since the mileage is so low. For several years immediately preceding the trade-in, pump testing and regular annual maintenance was performed by us. The truck has a small amount of rust. The worst is on the doors for the rear compartment. Also the passenger side has some scratches where it looks like someone side-swiped something. It is scratched but not dented here. The back bumper has a small dent. The upholstery in the cab is in good condition, but the floor matting on the driver's side needs to be replaced. We are asking $7500 or best offer. Please feel free to call us at 800-593-2462. (1-1-13 - -13-05)
