Mundelein also recently completed a full restoration of their 1925 Stoughton pumper. According to Mark Gaunky, this was “fully restored by retired Mundelein Lt. Jim Carew who saved it from being junked. It is a frame up restoration and 75% of the vehicle is original.” The unit has a 350 GPM pump and carries 150 gallons of water. It was originally donated to the village by Cardinal George Mundelein as a thank you for changing the town’s name to the Village of Mundelein. The original purchase price was $7,500 and the cost of the resoration was $65,000. The engine was in service for over twenty years.
