Auburn #502 Hose Truck

Today on Fire Engine and Emergency Vehicle Friday, let's continue our look at the Auburn Rubber Company's line of nifty rubber and vinyl vehicles. Today's featured toy: the Auburn #502 Hose Truck. You'll notice the 'sway back' body of this truck which is a fairly common deformity, but as my particular toy looks to be fairly new and un-played with, it's hard to say whether the sway back was a result of factory processes or improper storage of the toy. The silver detailing is in real good shape on this toy and highlights the details quite well. Enjoy!
