History of the

 

WEST VANCOUVER FIRE SERVICE

    1947 Hose Trailer Restoration

The old trailer was in such bad shape with many holes and pieces cut out of the body over the years that new sheet metal was used in the reconstruction. The old body was removed and the chassis, wheel rims and other parts were sand blasted and given a coat of primer.

Dave Hawkes made a new body and welded it to the chassis, then rewired it.

Elite Body Shop, 142 Fell Avenue, North Vancouver, BC donated the finish paintjob and we had WVFD logo hand painted on the sides Finally Rick Titcomb fitted a hose deck of stained oak.

We now have a hose load on the trailer and whole thing looks very good...we think it completes the look of the jeep in a parade.
