“1948 Willy’s CJ-2A Jeep mini-pumper fire truck. In running, driving and pumping condition. Always stored inside when not being used for a fire or in a parade. Shipped from Willy’s to Boyer fire apparatus in Syracuse NY to be up-fitted with the fire equipment for use at Griffiss Air Force base in Rome NY. It stayed at GAFB until 1966 when it was passed on to a small volunteer fire dept here in upstate NY and was used there until the 90’s when it was retired from active fire service. From then on it has had an easy retirement life doing parades, car shows and Fire truck exhibitions.

There are only 7010 original miles on this truck from new. It starts up and purrs like a kitten. It has all the original equipment with it to go to a fire right now, including the original 2 way radios, siren, hand tools, axes and even the helmet worn by the chief engineer who was in charge of this truck until its retirement. The ladder rack is full of all the tools, hoses and ladders that came with it.

The only thing that seems to be missing are the cross-bar tires that came on it from the factory. They were miserable to drive down the road with. It now has common radial tires on it and drives smoothly. Naturally it is a rust free example of a 78 year old fire truck !! A rare piece of history to find. very few left like this. Boyer only built 135 of these and 35 of them were exported, 20 of which went to the Brazilian Government for their fire depts. $25,500.”

    I own 106327, 230 before this one. I estimate that mine was built around April 3, 1947. This one may have come down the line on the same day. So, not a 1948.

    Micah,

    That’s a good point. It’s likely this wasn’t sold until 1948, which is probably how it got its (I assume) title-date of 1948.
