Vintage "rare" 1 Qt Pyrene Brass Fire Extinguisher - Hickman "sea Sled" on

US $495.00

Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

This is an empty vintage and "RARE" brass fire extinguisher made by the Pyrene Mfg. Co. of Newark, NJ and it is the 1 qt. model.  It comes with a Pyrene mounting bracket which has a new coat of black paint.  This was made for "THE SEA SLED CORPORATION" and on the top of the domed part of the extinguisher it is embossed in the brass SEA SLED.  The Sea Sled had an innovative hull design that is still used today by many boat manufacturers but failed to catch on with boaters in the last century.  This is the 1 qt. model and it has been polished and lacquered.  It has a few small dents and they can be seen in the pictures. The largest one is on the label at the "a" for laboratories.  The other 2 dents are to the left of the label in the center.  It is very rare to find a Pyrene  with a boat manufacturers name embossed in the brass.  I know of no other Sea Sled Pyrenes.  I have pictured a late 1930's General fire extinguisher in which GAR WOOD is embossed in the brass.  This is 1 of 3 known of this GAR WOOD General model and of coarse not part to this sale.  General also made fire extinguishers for Chris-Craft and featured them in their accessory catalogs from 1937 to 1960.  I have had 2 Chris-Craft embossed Generals in the past.  I believe that this is a 1926 model by the paint scheme on the label.  I will also include 2 vintage ads for Sea Sled boats.  If you have that vintage Sea Sled that needs that extra something at you next boat show, this is the one for you.  Please check out my other vintage fire extinguishers I have listed.  I ship world wide.

If you've loved the Lexus RX for the past decade, you won't be able to keep your hands off the new one. This third-gen soft-ute does everything for which it has been celebrated--providing a stylish, nontruck experience, lathered with luxury froth and festooned with technical widgets--and does it better than ever. This is no mere facelift.

Mon, 03 Mar 2014

Autoweek contributor, appraiser, valuation expert and rural quiz-bowl champ Dave Kinney has a thing for Studebaker Avantis. He claims to have owned around 100 of them, though we've heard that the real number is higher than that. One of those Avantis was the second one that Studebaker ever built.

2015 VW Jetta makes global debut at New York auto show

Mon, 14 Apr 2014

The 2015 Volkswagen Jetta is making its global debut at the New York auto show, and the changes for the new model year -- while not exactly breathtaking -- should help VW's volume-seller keep up with the competition. That includes the likes of the 2015 Chevrolet Cruze and 2015 Ford Focus, which are also showing off refreshes in the Big Apple. To start, VW says the mildly redesigned front fascia reduces drag (and gives a “wider and more substantial look” to boot!) with a new bumper and air intakes.
