1920s Sturditoy American LaFrance Water Tower Pressed Steel Toy


Selling on Friday

This is an original, unrestored version of one of the largest Sturditoy models ever produced, the No. 9 Fire Truck, a working water tower that could squirt water. It retains about 75% of its original red paint and has surface rust on the exposed surfaces. Truck is complete with sheet metal, wheels, tires, steering wheel, water tanks, gears, controls and the tower with swiveling nozzle. However, truck would benefit from a full restoration as the tower does not raise or lower and the steering is jammed up. One of the most intricate and impressive toys of the 1920s and a rare chance to own one. 33" L x 8.5" W x 18" H.
