Ettore Viazzo Steering Engine One in Larchmont's Memorial Day Parade in 2005

Engine One is a 1922 American LaFrance pumper that served Larchmont until 1948.

The Fire History Committee of the Historical Society has recovered the actual factory production records of Engine One and our plan is to restore it to its original specifications.

Engine One came from the factory painted ivory white with a fire-engine-red frame. The wheels were made of oak with hard rubber tires.

Based on an open selection process that considered several restoration experts, the restoration will be completed by Firefly Restorations of Hope, Maine.
