Popular Post SMFire History Posted September 19, 2013 Popular Post Share Posted September 19, 2013 Just wanted to introduce myself and Santa Monica Firefighters new project; our 1952 Mack 125LS. We have recently acquired it and will be fundraising to refurbish/restore this rig to it's original condition. It sat for years here in SoCal with one of our members, then made a brief stop in Central CA before coming home to be restored for our community, relief association fundraising, parades, etc. We have a lot to learn but I have friends nearby in Oceanside that restored their 1952 L95 so that will be a big help. I have acquired a copy of Harvey Eckarts book, received all information regarding our rig from the Mack Museum and will be looking for some parts that we are missing in the near future. My hope is to use this project not only as a benefit to the community but to help bridge the gap between our current members and the retirees who rode on this engine here in Santa Monica. Per the Mack museum it is one of three 1952 L125's and one of 46 built from 1940-1954. It was in service from delivery in May 1952 and converted to our Aircraft Rescue rig before being replaced by a true Walters AR and retired in the early 1980's. Our intentions are to return it to it's original form as a pumper.Dominic SmithSanta Monica Firefighters 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
