Here below is a Facebook link to the video of our Reiland & Bree truck being loaded onto a truck after the body was put back together. The continental engine is not working and missing a few pieces. We are readying it for display very soon. We are grateful to have this truck that was built just a few block from our Museum in Northbrook, IL as part of our collection. It was donated to us by Jay Lorenz who purchased it in the mid-1980s from the Rustic Man Fence Company on Waukegan Road in nearby Glenview.
Does anyone know of another complete R&B truck or have additional information they would be willing to share with us. We know that Northbrook had a R&B fire truck as did nearby Glencoe, IL. Winnetka, IL had a fleet of R&B trucks and the Lutter Brick Company in Glenview had one, too. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1885838354289
