  • 1929 Chevrolet Fire Truck

    We are looking into refurbing our '29 pumper. Any pictures, equipment lists, or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Paint schemes, how equipment was mounted etc. would help alot. Alot of stuff was altered or deleted from original.

    Thanks,

      As the Captain indicated, starting with who built the body and/or pump would be a great help. Furthermore, do you know the history of the vehicle (original owner, who it was sold to, etc). If there are any serial numbers, that would also be a help.

        Box Alarm & CaptOldTimer - it's been a while but have got more info on our truck we're looking to refurbish.
        The serial # on fire wall is LT21-xxxx, I'm not sure what the last four numbers are right now.
        The fire pump system is made by the W.S. Nott company out of Minneapolis. Turns out it sounds like it's actually a 1931 truck. It doesn't sound like they made the LT model in 29.
        It has the 131" Wheel base. Single rear tires.

        Any and all sources, pictures, links, etc. would be very much appreciated.
        If there's something you're still needing, I can try to get find out more.

        Thanks for any help.

            Knowing who built the BODY would be of tremendous help.

                It appears to be a NOTT fire apparatus and built on a Chevrolet light truck series chassis.

                It is referred to as a Nott Victor.


                See if the pump is a 350 or 500 gpm model.


                In 1939, W.S. Nott transferred what little remained to Minnesota Fire Equipment, later to become General Safety Equipment and now is a branch of Rosenbauer America.
