Does anyone have an original gm fire extinguisher 985592 that was offered circa 1964?

Thanks,

They are sometimes seen on eBay at $600 to $1200 depending on condition.

As you would expect, it needs a re-charge....

It has to pass a hydro before it can be charged too. If they cost that much and there's a demand seems like it could be reproduced.

A seller from Europe is reproducing the labels and the red service tag, but I haven't seen the actual extinguisher reproduced.
I'd guess there are other extinguishers out there that are the same item but without the GM label.
I doubt GM made that, likely bought from an existing FE supplier with their labels installed....

Only factory FE I ever saw was at the Heritage Museum in the Detroit (area).
It was on Bill Mitchell's "SHARK" Corvette. It was in a white canister as I recall.
