About Stamp

Manufactured in Woodstock, Ontario from 1928 to 1939, the Chieftain was a triple-combination pumping engine equipped with a fire pump, water tank, hose and ladders. Smaller equipment included fire extinguishers, axes, lanterns, pike pole, and a powerful searchlight. A six-cylinder gasoline engine powered the truck and its rotary pump. These vehicles were distinguished by their classic gabled hood with horizontal louvres and cast-aluminum radiator.
