IMHO it's both, real and homemade.

It doesn't have the looks of traditional firetrucks of that period. The condition of the wood looks to be newer than 90+ years old. However, It could have been made up at any time over the years by anyone. It could have been homemade back in the 20's and well cared for.
I can only guess.

Well,it could have been bought as a chassis by a small town,and built by some local folks for the community to use. Our fire department started that way. Mechanics and other folks built the first 2 tankers.

Shop built locally. Pretty nice truck for the
money. Has an accessory drive. Has been for
sale for a while. Very well built. Jerry Van and
myself saw it last August. Construction appeared
very solid.

Bud is right. The price is right.

Looks like Las Vegas's first engine powered apparatus. They had a local wagon builder make the body & hose bed.
