Bantam BRC Fire Truck Photos

Post by vwlfan » Tue Jan 05, 2021 10:51 am

I live in the Butler, PA area and in my search to find a Bantam BRC, to keep my Butler built Standard Eights company, I do a lot of local research on the vehicles which had been built in Butler. Last year while working in the Butler County Historical Society archives I came across these two photos, which give nice views of the driver and passenger sides of one of the three Bantam BRC fire trucks which had been built at the Bantam plant.

If these types of photos are not helpful to the forum just let me know and I can remove the post.

Thanks Bob

We never complain about pictures.

Also do you know of William Spear's excellent book concerning the Bantam jeep?

Hi Roy
Yes I was able to get a copy of his book at one of the Bantam Jeep Festivals. An excellent book and a fun read.
Thanks for the suggestion. Bob

Sorry the image is grainy, but here is another picture, of one of the three Bantam BRC Fire Trucks, from a found newspaper clipping. Bob
