Peter Pirsch & Sons, Peterbilt 359, engl.

The company was incorporated in 1900 in Kenosha US. State of Wisconsin established. It was not until 1926 that Peter Pirsch began producing fire-fighting vehicles. The brand name was Peter Pirsch. Andrew Sale, the founder’s great-grandson, managed the company from 1978. From around 1981, around 100 vehicles per year have been handed down. In 1988 the production of fire engines ended. This Peterbilt 359 is just one example of what Pirsch had built.

If you are interested in reproducing this Pumper as a model, you will find some original photos of this vehicle in the archive. At that time, the owner was the Auburn Fire Department in the US. The state of Alabama and the fire department received three identical Peterbilts in 1981. The Peterbilt kit from Revell, from which the Fire Truck and the Tow Truck from Stepps Towing Service were created, is suitable for building a 1:25 model.
