Eldon Seagate Pumper

Didja ever buy something and then regretted it almost immediately? Well, that's pretty much what happened with this Eldon Seagrave pumper. This came in a set with a gorgeous hook-&-ladder truck, a set of MPC ring-hand firemen, a fireman's helmet, and I think some other things. I had that set as a kid and it was terrific and buying this truck was a reminder of those wonderful days, however, as an adult collector it just doesn't fit in with my 'target' collection which is generally centered around much smaller vehicles. These Eldon trucks command fairly high prices even missing pieces like my sample. The hoses are gone and the hose reel handle is broken off  but the body is still in great shape and both drivers are still present. The truck measures  15 1/2" (38.1cm) L x 4 7/8" (12.38cm) W x 5 1/8" (13.01cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
