Looking for information or guidance in obtaining information about a 1946 Mack 750GPM Pumper currently owned by the West Point Volunteer Fire Company, West Point, PA 19486. (Montgomery County, PA) D.B.A Upper Gwynedd Township Fire Department
I am the Chief Engineer working with a committee put together by our department to restore our 1946 Mack Pumper, purchased in 1947. I am looking for whatever information I can find ranging from original build date, reason for build (suspected it was built for use by U.S. Forces during WWII but never delivered as such), build photos, specifications, modifications for municipal use, paint color codes, delivery date, signers of contract and so on.
Our goals with this unit is restore it back to its original condition including the Hale pump, removing accessories and hardware needed to meet the firefighting demand through the years which include but not limited to ladders, appliances, cab interior, engine and pump.
Any information that can be forwarded from the users of this forum would be greatly appreciated.
