The one you are thinking of from the TV shows was a Ward LaFrance not an American LaFrance. All the kits were based off the AMT kits, With the three kits you could build the complete line of ALF truck for that era,
The Ward cab is available as a casting
Here is a midship ladder from the kits

Ron, if you are interested in models of American apparatus may I suggest

Greg, nice truck. Btw, who makes the Ward Cab? I hope you don't mind me asking. TIA

Very Nice!  I build this kit some 38 years ago, I always loved the way you could always extend the ladder almost three feet.  GREAT JOB!
