Picture of our 1918 Ford TT Tank Truck on it’s very own trailer, just prior to being in a “Transportation Day” display at a local college. We use this truck in parades, public events, and elsewhere to help promote the Museum. Some of our volunteers are also involved with The Route 66 Organization, and this truck has been at some of those events. Thanks to many volunteers for the hours of hard work it took to not only get the truck in shape, but also to keep it looking good.

Miniature gas pump made in one of the refinery shops to sit on the front of the trailer.

We are very proud to have acquired this vehicle. It was donated to the museum by Deborah and Larry Narcus. We cannot thank them enough for their generosity.

This car is in excellent condition. It is the car that was used at Wood River to run and win in the mileage marathons that were held here for many years. Pictures follow, but simply do not do it justice. It is something you have to see in person to appreciate.

FIRETRUCK

This Firetruck was used in the refinery for several years, then loaned to a local airport for a few years. It is now at the museum, where everybody likes to climb up and see how it feels to be in the driver’s seat of a real Firetruck.
