I found this cool old fire truck in someones trash. I would like to know more about it, it's a littl ruff, but not bad.It has Good Year tires, a water tank, missing the hose but it still pumps water. Only one ladder,the bell, one headlight missing. Some little boy played alot. Hope you can help me. Thanks
Maybe you can ask and send a pic to this Doepke site for help.

Found 'em! Purchased from www.thomastoysantiquetoyparts.com for a reasonable price. They are beautifully done, a perfect fit, and come with very thin "sticky-tape" already attached to the underside. Highly recommended!
Thanks for the tip!

I just recently purchased a 2014 aerial ladder truck (to re-live the one I got for Christmas in 1953!). Is there a source for the aluminum running board covers (mine is missing all four). Thanks.
Difficult, but you can try and search regularly on this website for a (click): Doepke Fire Truck and see if one day an old one shows up for not too much which you can use for parts. Or under my links page there are some companies who make parts for toys.

A friend has a Adams Motor Grader by Doepke and is wondering what the value is. Few scratches but otherwise in great shape. Jimmy Boy - September 4, 2010 I have inherited a red Doepke MG. How can I tell what year it was manufactured? Were all sold in kits or were some assembled? Larry Ivey - August 19, 2010 In 1949 my dad gave me an MG steel model. I still have it and it is in perfect condition. NO BOX!!! Can you give me some idea what it is worth?
