Lot #711 - Built to haul kids in the fifties. Rare and wonderful. Built in the early post-WWII years as an amusement park ride, it combines a Crosley pickup truck with a long custom built fifth wheel "hook and ladder" trailer with benches down both sides and safety restraints shaped like fire fighters' ladders. Built by Overland Amusements in Lexington, Massachusetts, they were marketed to amusement parks, tourist attractions and carnivals. This example was restored by a St. Louis fire equipment dealer and is accordingly lavishly provided with fire equipment details including hoses, axes, bells and hose reels. Equipped with a 4-cylinder Jeep engine with automatic transmission. It will carry up to 30 kids and is perfect for parades, bithday parties or a car museum.
