Fire Truck Restoration:

 

The museum has formed a partnership with the Town of Florence, Arizona Department of Corrections, and Central Arizona Central College, to restore the 1953 Ford fire truck owned by the Town of Florence Fire Department. It is being restored at the state prison in Florence. Under the supervision of the instructors of a CAC auto body training class, the truck will be returned to near its original condition both mechanically and body work. The target for completion is by the Christmas Parade in Florence this year.

 

The museum also has two other Florence Fire Trucks in its collection - a 1937 Mack fire truck that served the town and a rare 1942 Ford fire truck that protected the prisoner of war camp in what is now Florence Gardens. The plan is to restore both of these as well for exhibit purposes.

 

Ongoing fund raising is in progress to help pay for the restoration and also to provide a facility for their storage once completed.

 

Donations may be made to:
