1918 American LaFrance
This fire pumper was created in tribute to the original Vesuvius, built by the American Manufacturing Company, which would later become known as the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company.
1918 American LaFrance Chemical truck
Of the original big three fire engine manufacturers in the United States, Ahrens Fox, Seagrave and American LaFrance, it was the third that was the most economical.
1923 Cretors Popcorn Wagon
The story of Charles Cretors is the traditional one of a man building a better mousetrap, or in this case, a better peanut roaster.
1923 Ford T Depot Hack
Similar in body style to the Beach Wagon, the Depot Hack body style features an interesting history.
1925 Ford Beach Wagon
Few visits to Maine are complete without a trip to the beach, and what better vehicle to do so in than this Model T Beach Wagon. This was a custom vehicle in the grand sense.
1925 Ford Track Inspection Car
This Model T was converted into a crew car for the two-foot gauge Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad at the Phillips, Maine, Car Barn.
1926 Ford Snowmobile
This early type of snowmobile is a far cry from the machines of the 1990s. But if in the 1920s you had to get about in snow country, this conversion of the versatile Model T Ford was a good choice.
1926 Pierce-Arrow Series 80
In 1901 George N. Pierce, maker of bicycles, bird cages and bathtubs, built the first Pierce motor vehicle--the Motorette--powered by a single-cylinder de Dion engine.
1929 Rolls-Royce Tourer
This Derby-bodied tourer, chassis number S293KR, was delivered to movie star Clara Bow in December 1930. Built in Springfield, Massachusetts, it is a nice example of its type.
