I'm looking for a front mount pump for a restoration project of a 1934 Chevy 1.5 ton truck. Looking for a Barton-American 100 GPM front mount pump. I believe its a Model F3. I've tried the usual fire truck websites and been to many flea markets with no luck. Anyone have a lead on one?

Hi Pete,

I don't know if this guy sold his Chevy fire truck project, but here's a link to info about it (including the phone number): 1926 Chevy fire truck project for sale in CA

And, below is a picture that shows the pump hanging onto the front (it is not hooked up to the drive line).

Hope this helps.

Dean

Thats not quite the pump I'm looking for but close enough. I'm interested in it. However, link is broken and I can't find the truck on Craigslist, or any other web search. I'll try the phone number on Monday. THANKS!!
