Vintage Brass General "quick-aid" Extinguisher With Bracket/chris-craft 1949-52 on 2040-parts.com
Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
is an empty vintage brass fire extinguisher made
by the General Fire Extinguisher Co. and it is model 85HD. It is the 1
qt. size and is about 14" long and comes with it's original mounting
bracket which has a new coat of maroon paint. It has been polished
and lacquered and as you can see in the pictures, it displays very
well. Someone did a lot of work on the website "vintagefe" and that
site states that General fire extinguishers were featured in Chris-Craft
accessories from 1937 to 1960. This would be the correct extinguisher
for a 1949 - 1952 Chris-Craft boat. The extinguisher has some small dings on both sides of the brass label but don't show up well in the pictures, they are that small. The T pump handle moves in and out
as designed. The brass label retains nearly
all of it's original paint but some has faded over the last 60+ years. The would make a great addition to a
collection or mounted on a vintage boat, car, or truck. Please check
out my other vintage fire extinguishers I have listed.

This is the new Ginetta G60, a £68k rival for the Porsche’s 911 and Cayman, and a homegrown opponent for Jaguar’s forthcoming XE sports car. Don't I recognise the Ginetta G60? You do.

Citroen has revealed the C-Zero, an electric city car based on Mitsubishi's i-MiEV, and a sibling to Peugeot's iOn. Well, Citroen and Peugeot are both now taken care of - Citroen's PSA partner Peugeot unveiled the iOn earlier this year - but the rebadged i-MiEV is an easy way for Citroen to add a zero-emissions vehicle to its range. The C-Zero is powered by a 47kW (64bhp) motor that also produces 133lb ft and sends the drive to the rear wheels.

Korean brand Ssangyong is back from the dead. After looking odds-on favorite to become another automotive casualty of the global recession after Chinese owner SAIC put it into receivership in early 2009, the 4x4 specialist has found a new owner in 2010 – signing a memorandum of understanding with Indian company Mahindra & Mahindra in August – and has just re-launched its brand with a new car designed by Giugiaro. The fourth-generation Korando mid-sized crossover – prefaced by the C200 concept shown at the April 2009 Seoul motorshow – is due on sale in January 2011 pending the expected completion of the Mahindra deal in November this year.
