After 50 Years, Temple (TX) Missing Fire Apparatus Hubcap Replaced

Nearly 50 years after going missing, the hubcap from Temple Fire & Rescue’s 1939 Diamond T fire truck has been replaced, reports KWTX 10.

The rear passenger side hubcap disappeared sometime in the 1960s and as the years passed, with the manufacturer no longer in business, a replacement wasn’t readily available.

Temple Fire & Rescue driver Justin Jackson and Battalion Chief Matt Perrine recently found one for sale on Ebay for $250.
