Vintage Brass General "quick-aid" Extinguisher With Bracket/chris-craft 1949-52 on 2040-parts.com
Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
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.

By Tim Pollard First Official Pictures 26 February 2008 09:36 It’s only a year since Maserati whisked the covers off the delectable Granturismo and the Italians are unveiling a new, more powerful version. The Granturismo S receives a heart transplant from the sister company Alfa Romeo – in the shape of the 4.7-litre V8 from the 8C supercar. The extra half litre provides more muscle, power rising to 434bhp, compared with the regular Granturismo’s sundry 400bhp. Maserati hasn’t issued performance figures ahead of the car’s Geneva show debut next week, but it’ll clearly be supercar-quick, with a 0-60mph time in less than five seconds.Thu, 09 Feb 2012

That was when Mo was still in charge. But now the Qataris are calling the shots at Knightsbridge’s favourite corner shop things have gone a bit more upmarket – the al Thanis have shoved an Aston Martin Cygnet in Harrods’ window.
