Hmmm, no one has this yet. This model would be very appropriate to display at this year's convention.

Hooray for John Frances. I have been looking at pictures for 2 days for a truck with a double row of louvers and now I can stop. NETCO is correct. Thank you Mr. Frances.

Hooray for John Frances indeed ! What better to see in Springfield than a Massachusetts truck ? This fire truck is a Netco. It has been described as both a 1916 and a 1922 model, but we also have info it was rebuilt in the 1930's. Our WAI photo is from a 1950's postcard and describes this truck as a '22. Below is some info Bill White sent, which goes with the last photo. I think these are both the same truck. Thanks to Bill for the photos too.

New England Truck Co



The New England Truck Company of Fitchburg, Massachusetts,
built commercial trucks with components from a variety of manufacturers.








This info. goes to the one in this attachment




This 1916 NETCO was delivered to the nearby Worcester Fire Department as
a Model F chassis at a cost of $2,450, and was completed by the department
as a Hose Wagon. Powered by a Continental 477-cu.in. straight-six, with
a 4-speed Brown Lipe transmission installed during a 1930's retrofit,
its original engine was a Continental four cylinder. In addition to 500-600
feet of 2-1/2" hose, it has a PTO 75gpm rotary gear pump and 30-gallon water tank.
Few trucks were built on NETCO chassis, and this Hose Truck,
believed decommissioned during the mid-1950's, is the only known example in restored condition.

Rocket, I was just saying it would be nice to see this Massachusetts truck at the Springfield show. I assume this truck might still be in Worcester, which is about 40-50 miles east of Springfield.
