The Ann Arbor City Council voted unanimously to sell their 1927 American LaFrance fire engine to the Michigan Firehouse Museum and Education Center for $1, reports mlive.com.
The fire department does not have the space, funding or personnel available to properly restore it.
Part of the agreement states that if the museum were to part with the fire engine, the Ann Arbor Fire Department would have first right of refusal to get it back.
The museum was founded about 25 years ago. COVID-19 has impacted the museum but there are plans to re-open in late June.
