39fox

1939 Ahrens Fox Fire Engine, "The Fox" the Coraopolis firefighters call it; Rebuilt in 1995 by some of the departments members. The restoration that took three years is well documented in one of the Fire Department's photo albums.

The Fox was originally purchased new by the Coraopolis Volunteer Fire Department in 1939. It was in service until 1963. When it was taken out of service it was sold to a farmer in Westmorland County . The Department was fortunate to get the engine back after so many years. "The Fox" makes regular appearances at local parades and is also part of the Tri-State Antique Firefighting Association.
