1938 was a landmark year for new product development for American LaFrance. The company introduced its first hydraulically-operated all-steel aerial ladder along with the industry's first compact, cab-forward aerial ladder truck. But the biggest news of that year was its ultra-streamlined 500 Series fire apparatus. With its dramatically clean styling, the art deco 500 series suddenly made everything else look old fashioned. This authoritative, superbly researched, and lavishly illustrated book documents the American LaFrance 500 and 600 Series' remarkable nine-year production run following WWII. The book also covers the lesser known "junior edition" B-500 and B-600 Series.
