Kenworth 750 GPM Pumper
Fire Apparatus With A Streamlined Look
Apparatus #132 is a 1940 custom built Kenworth 750-GPM pumper. Its
appearance is distinguished
by many decorative chrome accents that Kenworth used for fire apparatus that did not appear on
commercial trucks. The most notable custom feature is the large
radiator grill, sporting a winged Kenworth hood ornament.
The rear fender skirts give it a
streamlined look popular in the 1940's.
Apparatus #132 was purchased new by the Snohomish Fire Department,
serving there for 32 years.
It also served another 11 years at
Lake Roesiger. When the Last Resort Fire Department finally took
possession of this rig in 1983, it had been driven only 7600 miles during its 43
years in the fire service.
