Tom's Inspiration:

This was the second version of the Firecarcker...and the only things changed were the replacement of the far-out tires and wheels to what can be described as more "realistic" looking, in that the overall look was that of a "Vintage Tin" model...almost stock looking except for the "Fire Hose" exhaust headers. Even the name: Fire Iron was more sedate.

Year: 1973

Scale: 1/24

Sound the alarm...here comes the Fire Iron! Tom Daniel's version of an old time fire engine is hot enough to smoke up the quarter-mile, cool enough to turn-on any mod smoke eater. Molded in fire engine red, this rig has brass-plated trim, black rubber super-wide low profile slicks and a Ford Cobra 289 mill with "hose coupling" headers. High pressure pump is under the seat, fire axe mounts on the side and extinguisher rides on the running board.
