As long as the West applies, how about this hand-drawn fire engine from 1859? I am told that it still works, though it needs a bit of maintenance.

Text on plaque reads:

FIRE HOUSE No. 1
1854

In this building erected in October 1854 was Shaw ans Brown's Grocery until superceded by Wheeler Bros. in april 1857. Partially demolished by a gunpowder explosion in the Fire of 1857, it was rebuilt in March 1861. The town of Columbia purchased it for the permanent home of the Tuolomne County Engine Co. No. 1 and their hand pumper "Papeete" brought from San Francisco two years before.

Another shot, taken at the same time... (Really had to squeeze things to come in under the physical and file size limits and still show enough detail to give a proper flavor of the original.)

The location shots for the Western classic "High Noon" were filmed around here.
