What else would a kid want? We have a fire truck offered for sale here, but a chemical truck version with a fluid basin and piping. Our toy appeared in the 1925 Keystone catalog, pictured below.
Ladders and paint are original along with excellent original stickers. The toy was very well cared for but has typical scratches, chipping, and paint aging from being a toy.
Hoses are old, but nozzles, connectors, and pumps are all there. The hoses have breaks from being so old and the long main line is solid rubber replacement tube. The basin looks good, and normally they are rotted or missing.
Tires are in very good condition and oft-broken bell is present and working. -Another pressed steel gem!
1919 – Keystone Manufacturing Company is founded. Keystone Manufacturing was incorporated to build machines etc., with $20,000 capital by Edward M. Swartz, J.M. Welsman, Isidore Marks and Benjamin Marks.
