04/27/15 95 W, 1 I - + 11 - 9 Vintage Photo of Leaksville Pumper/Tanker

Found for sale on eBay is this color slide of a 1967 Chevrolet pumper/tanker, from the Leaksville Fire Department. Note the faded lettering that says Eden Fire Department. The villages of Leaksville, Draper, and Spray merged in 1967. Each had their own fire departments, with Leaksville's dating to at least the 1920s. Unsure the explanation for faded lettering. Maybe was private-owned, with LFD added as a commemorative action? Maybe the truck was originally delivered as LFD, then changed to EFD, then restored to LFD? Very strange. Click to enlarge:
