American LaFrance


In 1903 Truckson LaFrance founded the American LaFrance comapany (ALF).  The first ALF fire engines were still pulled by horses, but 1910 the first American LaFrance appeared with a Simplex petrol engine.  Over the years, various ALF fire engines were nevertheless converted into racing cars.  The White ALF was powered by a six-cylinder engine.  The car was specially built for long-distance races.
