Lot #5046 - Ahrens Fox earned its reputation for innovation and premium quality by adhering to its founder's credo of "nothing too good for the fire service, only the best will do." It is considered by many collectors to be "the Rolls-Royce of fire engines" and fire apparatus. Produced from 1935 to 1939, Ahrens Fox BT models were powered by a company-built, 1,140cid 6 cylinder engine and were capable of delivering 1,250 gallons of water per minute at 120psi. Registration number 4017 was delivered new December 11, 1936. Formerly in service with the Mount Vernon, New York Fire Department, it is possibly the finest example remaining. The truck retains its original "Big Bertha" 6 cylinder engine and front-mounted, 6 cylinder piston pump. The truck received a thorough restoration. Data shows that only six of the BT models exist today.
