Apparently back in the day, the Sundstrand Company in Belvidere, Illinois needed an in-plant fire engine to satisfy insurance requirements as the fire department was so far away.
The Thomas Pump Company of Chicago built this kind of equipment (they still exist today) between 1952 and 1955. This particular unusual vehicle is located in Decatur, Arkansas and is up for sale here on eBay, where the buy-it-now is $5,500 but lower offers are welcome.

It’s only 50 inches wide so that it can fit through the aisles of an industrial plant. Typically, an industrial safety vehicle like this gets a lot of preventative maintenance but not much use.The John Bean pump (they have also made a lot of front-end alignment equipment, and are also still around) is said to be fully functional, and the truck comes with full gear including a ladder, axes, siren, lights, and over 100 feet of hose! The seller also talks about a sticking valve at start up and a tune-up that’s needed, so be prepared to do some maintenance.

The obvious use for this vehicle would be its original intended use of an indoor fire engine.
