06/15/12 50 W, 1 I - + 9 - 4 Vintage Photo of Fayetteville Engine 2

Found for sale on eBay, here's what looks like a delivery photo of a 1940s Mack for the Fayetteville Fire Department. Lettered for Engine 2. Dig that triple suction rack. Seller says Fayetteville, NC. Presuming accurate unless hear otherwise. Click once or twice to enlarge:

Not sure that this is North Carolina. Sanborn Maps for 1950 list FFD apparatus as follows. Unless the above truck is a 1950s Mack, though didn’t they start buying 1950s American LaFrance 700 pumpers?

Station #1 – 1940 Seagrave pumper, 1926 Seagrave pumper, 1947 Ford/American LaFrance pumper, 1949 Studebaker (!) pumper, 1938 Chevrolet ladder truck, 1950 American LaFrance aerial truck, Dodge auxiliary truck

Station #2 – 1944 Ford/American LaFrance pumper, 1924 American LaFrance pumper.

Station #3 – 1944 Ford/American Lafrance pumper, 1924 American LaFrance pumper.

A 30 second Google search reveals Fayetteville Fire Departments in a lot of other places- AR, GA, NY, OH, and PA on the first page. I don’t know…to me it just doesn’t have the ‘NC Mack look’...meaning I have never seen pictures of but two ‘covered’ Mack fire trucks like the one above, or older. One from Hamlet and the sedan pumper from Charlotte. Of course, I could have missed a couple….
