Go Fund Me page created to restore Westfield Fire Department’s 1951 Studebaker truck


A Go Fund Me page was recently created to completely restore Westfield Fire Dept.’s third fire truck back to its original state. The 1951 Studebaker truck is owned by a group of Westfield firefighters. The restored truck will be used for occasional parades, but its main purpose will be as the lead truck in fallen firefighter funeral processions.

Michael Kobrowski, volunteer curator of the Westfield Washington Historical Society & Museum, found the fundraiser.

“I love historical artifacts and our museum is in the old fire station that this truck used to sit behind of (the second ever fire truck used to sit inside it),” he wrote on the funding site. “We need to preserve history and what better than to do with this Indiana built Westfield used fire engine?”
