This Kiddie Hook and Ladder Fire Tuck Amusement Ride was purchased new in 1951 by the Whalom Amusement Park and used for 49 years until the park closed down in 2000. Whalom Amusement Park was one of the first amusement parks in the US. The Massachusetts park opened in 1893. The truck was designed with wooden benches in the rear that would hold up to 25 children. The ladders are mounted on hinges and swing open and close to secure passengers while in use.

The truck has only 9k actual miles and underwent a cosmetic restoration. These Hook and Ladder trucks are very rare and desirable because its a unique novelty. What makes this one special is the fact that its history is known. Most of the examples today don't have the pedigree and background and could even be replicas. Knowing where this truck came from, how it was used provides a historic value on top of its novelty value, plus we can be certain its an original and not a replica!
