A real American LaFrance Type 700

American LaFrance has been producing firefighting equipment since 1873 and fire engines since 1903. Over the years, it has made many different types of firefighting vehicles, from airport crash turcks to aerial ladders trucks, such as the American LaFrance Type 700 of the 1950s. In 1995, Freightliner bought out American LaFrance, along with other commercial vehicle brands. It was in this period that the Freightliner Century, Freightliner FLD 120 Classic XL, American LaFrance Fire Truck and Silver Eagle Fire Truck were produced. In 2005, rights to LaFrance were once again sold to Patriach Partners, who still used the same plant, until DaimlerChrysler started using it as an assembly line for the Dodge/Freightliner Sprinter, a rebranded Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. In early 2008, American LaFrance was filed for bankruptcy, but recovered later that year under a new initiative to spread the vehicles' production across the US.
