Could you help ID make and year of the firetruck.
It is thought to be a Cadillac from 1913 or 1914.

Thanks

Mike,

Based on the size of both hub caps and the shape of the cowl and the single molding at the top edge of the cowl up-sweep it appears to be a 1914 Cadillac. The cowl looks like a 5 or 7 Passenger Touring.

The radiator shape, head light shape and size and shape of the cowl lights point to Cadillac.

See page 55 of "80 Years of Cadillac" by M.P. McCall

Hope this helps,
Evan Mason

Evan, I'm not so sure I agree. I think it's probably a "red" fire truck.

There were two 1914 Cadillacs on the HME as well... just like the Firetruck. The side lights and headlight rims give it away as a '14, not '13 Cadillac.

Mike G.,

You know I think that you are right. Nah in that day and age it was probably a deep maroon in color.

But you answer made me think of an old mentor that I had not thought of in a long while. You would see an interesting bird in Ted's presence and ask the inquisitive question "What kind of bird is that?" and get the response "a brown (insert what ever color the bird was) bird. Truth is he was always right in his identifications!

Mike B. You're very welcome.
