What you see pictured is what you receive. I took a ton of pics so please refer to them for condition. The dome that sits at the top is missing and there is some light surface rust on the bottom edge/corner (see pic).You can see from the pic of the bottom this rust does not go through and is simply light surface rust to be expected considering this gem is 65 years old! You can see on the side it has a green crank which attaches to a ramp inside the garage door. This was to load and release a vehicle on the ramp (in researching this piece it is unclear if this was the fire chief's vehicle or a fire truck). Regardless the crank ramp mechanism appears to be intact and in working condition. This two-story Firehouse stands 15 1/4" (38.7cm) L x 8 1/2" (21.6cm) D x 12 (30.5cm) H. This rare beauty belongs in someone's collection!
Take a look at the pics and determine if that collection is yours!
