The KHTS Antique Fire Truck

The KHTS Fire Truck is a mint condition 1948 Mack Fire Truck. Not only does it stand out in a crowd, kids love to climb on-board, clang the bell, and turn on the siren.

Everybody loves a fire truck!

The moment takes on a lasting impression, when the kids (and grown kids) put on real fire fighter clothes and get their picture taken in full gear. We’ll photograph the kids, and allow them to download their picture for free on our website, hometownstation.com.KHTS Antique Firetruck

About the KHTS Fire Truck

America’s most famous manufacturer of fire apparatus, Mack Trucks of Allentown, Pennsylvania began building fire trucks around 1911. Over the years, these beautiful fire engines, bearing the trademark, “Bull Dog”, proved to be as tough and reliable as the saying, “Built like a Mack Truck” indicates.

Thousands of these classic trucks served firefighters throughout the nation over the years. Mack stopped making custom trucks in 1990, to the dismay of Mack fans.

KHTS Antique FiretruckThe KHTS Fire Truck is a 1948 “Cape Cod” Mack Fire Truck, used for five decades by firefighters in the small town of Palmyra, New Jersey, a Philadelphia suburb. Imagine  firefighters racing to a fire in the frigid cold of the East Coast! It was retired from service in the ‘70’s. Palmyra converted it into a “Parade Truck.”

An Atlanta tour company purchased the truck in the ‘90’s. They gave tours of old town Atlanta. In 2003, Dr. Ron Singer, the well known, Santa Clarita pediatric dentist, purchased the truck for his personal enjoyment and collection. Over the years, he generously loaned the truck to KHTS on many occasions. In 2006, KHTS purchased the fire truck from Dr. Singer so Santa Clarita residents could enjoy and learn more about this historical vehicle.

Special thanks to SCV Bank for sponsoring the KHTS Fire Truck and the Santa Clarita firefighters (a division of the Los Angeles County Firefighters) for donating the fire fighting outfits and assisting us with educational presentations.

  7. What’s up mates, good piece of writing and nice urging commented at this place, I am genuinely enjoying by
    these.

  8. I’ve wondered for years where this engine ended up. A bit of history: the truck was dedicated to Chief Edwin Redfield, Palmyra Fire Co.,with a plaque mounted on the side of the truck. Chief Redfield lost his life on April 10, 1945 while trying to rescue a 6 year old girl from the second floor of a burning home in Cinnaminson Township. The plaque sits in the trophy case at Palmyra’s firehouse. The truck was sold to Cinnaminson in the 1960’s I think and they operated it for several more years before selling it I believe sometime in the 1970’s to I have no idea. Great to see this great truck again!
