This 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.

Cadillac issues XTS recall over fire risk

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 00:00:00 -0700

Cadillac is recalling approximately 63,900 XTS sedans over an issue with the brake booster pump. The company believes that the brake booster pump can create positive pressure inside the wiring harness which is attached to the pump relay, and this pressure can dislodge a cavity plug in the relay and allow corrosive elements to enter the connector, creating a resistive short. Cadillac believes that this could lead to overheating and melting of plastic components, and may cause a fire in the engine compartment.
