When the alarms sound in the fire station, response time is the only thing that matters. Dispatching a fleet of vehicles prepared for every emergency is no small task.

Scale size accessories such as first aid kit and chief's helmet make for a powerful tribute to firefighters everywhere.
The original Harley-Davidson® Servi-Car made its appearance in the early 1930s. The three-wheeled utility vehicle was originally designed to be towed behind a newly purchased automobile. Once the car was delivered, the Servi-Car would be released and the dealer rep would ride the vehicle back to the showroom. Soon, the Servi-Car was put to additional uses that included the delivery of parts and roadside assistance for disabled cars and trucks. Harley® advertising of the era even touted the three-wheeler as perfect for small deliveries by druggist, merchant and delivery services.
It was not long, however, before law enforcement and fire departments across the nation realized the advantages of the motorized three-wheeler. When responding to a call, the fire chief's vehicle of choice was the powerful and reliable Servi-Car, which provided him access to places denied larger vehicles.
As a firefighting vehicle, the Servi-Car provides valuable lifesaving duties by speeding first aid supplies to hard-to-access places and by affording a firefighter the means to assess the severity of a given situation.
Packed with authentic detail, your precision model of the 1947 Harley-Davidson® Fire Chief Servi-Car features an exact re-creation of Harley®'s 45-cubic-inch flathead V-Twin engine. It is equipped with an array of scale-size accessories you'd expect to find on an actual vehicle––an axe, first aid kit and fire chief's hat.
