Prince Rupert's Fire & Police Museum 1958 pumper
I found the information about it online at:
1958 American LaFrance
As one of only 2 LaFrance fire vehicles built with a prototype "transmatic" transmission, we believe that this is the only one left in existence. The riot act was once read from atop this vehicle twice in one night by former long time Mayor Peter Lester. Removed from service in 1990, it was donated to the museum where local members and a long list of local business helped to restore her back to her original beauty.
The Museum also contains history and artifacts of the BC Police, a provincial force that preceded the present day Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The BC Police, operating from 1858 to 1950, has quite a colorful history up here in remote northern British Columbia. Our collection, small but growing, of B.C. Police artifacts, is said to be the largest of any collection in the Province. This 4-door sedan car was a former B.C. Police vehicle. Found in Terrace, B.C., this vehicle is currently involved in a complete restoration from the frame up.
