1933 Ahrens-Fox CT4 Magnificent original Ahrens-Fox CT4 Triple Pumper! Very rare 1 of approximately 5 built featuring a massive 935ci Inline 6 cylinder valve-in-head engine and 6 piston front pump capable of moving 1,000 gallons of water per minute! Iconic fire trucks built with precision by the hands of Cincinnati craftsmen and used all over the world, including Tokyo, Japan!
Ahrens-Fox, perhaps reflecting Charles Fox’s experience as a fire fighter in Cincinnati, became known for the high quality of its apparatus. Their last example was delivered in 1952 to Hope Hose Company #1 in Tarrytown, New York. We are very proud to present “Big Lizz”, this 1933 Ahrens-Fox C-T-4 triple pumper fire truck!
Louis Car Museum spent several weeks fine tuning the mechanicals and couldn’t be more proud of the results! A new fuel pump & filter, 18 new spark plugs, a new fuel tank and carburetor adjustment means this truck runs down the road without hiccup, with smooth power delivery and relatively easy engagement of gears. With proper timing and throttle, it is even possible to idle down to about 150 rpm!
