Over 250 hand-crafted parts.

Squad 4 - Pride of the Northside.
Squad 4 will feature its own license plate and graphics...but will feature the MARS Aurora Borealis light bar on the cab roof. Squad 4 was stationed at 1219 Gunnison St. at the Engine 83 House.
Museum grade precision.
Over a year of development has been invested in Chicago Fire Department Autocar scale models. Countless hours of design, proofing, and improvements make this replica museum grade.
Extremely limited availability.
Production of CFD Autocar Squad 4 will be limited to 300 units. Fire Replicas are designed with the elite collector in mind, and manufactured in limited quantities to enhance future value.
Fully custom presentation.
The CFD Autocar Squad measures 5.75"L x 2"W x 2.25"T and is securely displayed inside a custom case. The case dimensions are 8"L x 4.5"W x 3.75"T and the platform includes an etched stainless steel nameplate with the CFD seal, department and truck name.
This Chicago Fire Department 1954 Autocar Squad 4 scale model is a museum grade replica. Like all Fire Replicas models, every detail is modeled to perfection and with razor sharp precision. The replica features the specific department configuration and graphics, leaving no detail overlooked. The display case is custom manufactured with high quality acrylic and resin. The stainless steel etched plate features the department and truck name, and department seal. This replica is a treasure to be displayed and admired and is in no way a toy.
This is not a toy and not suitable for children under the age of 14. This highly detailed scale model contains small, intricate pieces that may present a choking hazard.

I received my CFD Squad 4 a few weeks ago, and was blown away with the craftsmanship and detail on this piece. From the way it was packaged to the handwritten thank you letter in the box, I was very impressed. A.J. DeAngelis on 22nd Jun 2017
Beautifully detailed piece of the highest quality. The attention to detail and finish is superb. The inclusion of a dust free case with brass plate is a great touch. Unknown on 20th Jun 2017
I lived in thelr district and witnessed them at work or responding to calls. They were slow but impressive. At one call they were late. As the other fireman were picking up one called out"Squad 4 made it". As a kid I thought that was funny.
Thanks for the model.
I love the Aurora Borealis. Always my favorite warning light. john winterfeld on 19th Jun 2017
Once again "Fire Replicas" has created another miniature scale model of the Chicago Fire Department's Autocar squads in precise detail. History is captured! Fire Chief Emeritus Michael L. Kuk, PhD. on 17th Jun 2017
Squad 4 carries on the tradition of Quality detail that is expected from Fire Replicas! This is my 6th unit purchased and all are highly accurate in detail!
Like the addition of 2 extra Deluge Guns and the Stokes Basket as well as the Mars Aurora Borealis light bar verses the Football Light on the other Squads.

A beautiful model with lots of little details. The accessories that come with it give the model a personal touch. The pipe work behind the cab is very intricate. There are the tiniest valve wheels I've ever seen. The light bar on the cab is also very nicely assembled. There are other detailed parts on the squad...to many to list. Erik on 2nd Jun 2017
This truck is so different than the first 3, the stokes basket is amazing, the skilled hands that built each of those must not drink caffeine! The other difference being the the shop added Reilly pipes on the rear step, they added another feature to the rigs for fighting the large fires in the early 60's. I know we may not see anymore of these produced and it took a company like Fire Replicas to produce the one of a kind fire truck. Home run again! You needed 10 stars on this rating.
