I think it's more likely a 1936. It's certainly much too old to be a '56. I'm pretty sure it's pre-WWII.

It's a 1938 Ford (only year with the "Barrel Nose")

I remember this pump from reading about it a year ago. If I remember correctly, it also towed a dry-powder unit, a relatively new firefighting feature in pre-war days!
